Our journey into India began in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, where we attended the wedding of my darling friend Veenaa. Like all Indian weddings it was a big celebration, with loud music, plenty of strange and comical rituals, lots of good food, and numerous ... Read more >

MALAYSIA | Monday, 26 Jul 2010 | Views [543] | Comments [1]

The first stop on the next leg of our trip was to be Cameron Highlands in Malaysia. I was very excited by the idea of going to Malaysia on the overnight train from Singapore as trains are one of my favourite modes of transportation. I never get bored ... Read more >

From Bali to Singapore

INDONESIA | Saturday, 10 Jul 2010 | Views [598]

After 8 days of being on a boat, it took a day for our heads to catch up to the fact that we were back on dry land, and the ground was no longer moving below our feet. We spent two more days at Simpang Inn in Legian, roaming around, getting massages ... Read more >

We landed in Bali at 6:30 pm on Saturday evening (26th June) and tried to secure accommodation on Kuta Beach at the airport, as the place we had emailed the night before had not responded to us. The Bali high season (July to September) was almost ... Read more >

Mount Kinabalu

MALAYSIA | Friday, 18 Jun 2010 | Views [1139]

Oh Gunung Kinabalu, you formidable foe. You almost killed me; you made my legs feel like lead weights, you battered my knees, you almost twisted my ankles by making my feet slip on wet, muddy planks and uneven rocks. But I fought back, gasping for air, ... Read more >

Welcome to the Jungle

MALAYSIA | Tuesday, 15 Jun 2010 | Views [857] | Comments [2]

It is now one week into our trip, and I haven't bathed in 3 days. Nice. Ok no, I don't have latent neanderthal tendencies; this is because we spent the last three days hamming it up deep in the Borneo rainforest. From Semporna, we made our way to ... Read more >

The bus journey from KK to Semporna turned out to be more eventful than I thought it would be; we were told that the trip would take around 10 hours so we decided to take the bus that leaves KK at 7:30 pm. The hostel reserved seats for us earlier in ... Read more >
