Hey guys, been following your adventures for a little while now and have been really enjoying your blog. Your writing always draws me in and your pictures are often stunning. We visited some similar places on our last trip (Borneo being an absolute highlight) so reading of your encounters with wildlife transports me from cold and rainy Brighton (enjoy a smug smile) to the steamy pleasures of Borneo.
