From Singapore onwards to Malaysia

Monday, 26 Jul 2010 | Views [525] | 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 >

Welcome to the Jungle

Tuesday, 15 Jun 2010 | Views [844] | Comments [2]

Hello from Kota Kinabalu! We’re staying at Xplorer Backpackers along Jalan Gaya, and it’s a nice little place - basic accomodation, central location, WI FI (which works intermittently) and most importantly, air conditioning and a ceiling fan. Thank ... Read more >
