Thank you for seeking me out. Some call me Bandi but my name is Bernard Dias. I was born in Sri Lanka (Ceylon), studied medicine in the Ukraine and Russia and practised and live in the Yorkshire spa town of Harrogate. I spend the winter months in Sri Lanka and travel in the Far East using a modest place I keep on the island as my base. I am passionate about travel, food, wine and birds. This blog attempts to document some of my travels and experiences in and from Sri Lanka.
My second blog is about exploits with my soul mates from the Harrogate Medical Wine Society which I founded in 1991. Please do take a look. The link is:
The image of myself above is from a visit to the vineyards of Georgia.
