Brunei Day 1-2 (28-29 since arriving in Malaysia): Bandar Seri Begawan. I caught an early flight from KK to Brunei’s capital, BSB which took only 30 minutes. On arrival, and with the stamp of the 35th country I’ve visited securely in my passport, I straightaway noticed the quiet and calm of the airport which extended… Continue reading Which country shall I visit today?
Malaysia Days 25-27: Kota Kinabulu (KK). This is going to be a very short blog as the last few days have been fairly relaxed in KK, the capital of Sabah.

Malaysia Days 11-17: Penang My trip from Melaka to Penang by bus was pretty straightforward but took most of the day (by the time I stopped in KL to visit the Myanmar Embassy to get my visa only to find the embassy closed). In arriving in Georgetown, Penang, I still had a few hours of… Continue reading There’s no place like Penang

Sadly, after our fabulous jungle experience ended, the heavens continued to pour so I decided a trip to the Cameron Highlands for more trekking wouldn’t be that enjoyable. Instead, I decided to head back to KL and down to Melaka for a few days. But first, four of us… Continue reading Monkeys in Melaka
How would you entertain yourselves on an eleven hour train journey? Card games of course. I said that I’d write a blog about the games we played on the train from Jodhpur to Agra so here it is. First we played a simple game of trumps, which ended up setting the scene for the rest… Continue reading Card games on the train
