Home sweet home, well sort of. We caught the 2pm flight from BKK to Penang and yes, this time we made the flight, just. "Would passengers Lloyd Westly and Ryan Roberts, please report to gate 71 immediately!" You had to have your ice cream from 7 eleven hey Loopy. Last people but we made it and all went well. Arrived in Batu Ferrenghi at my lovely friend Kristinas parents house. We were met at the gate by her father Al who kindly allowed us to put our bags down before we embarked on a bike ride down the coast. Quite beautiful.

Brilliant - first encounter with o/s internet at hotel is absolute nightmare! Was well on the way to great first blog on the road, only to have it destroyed by pop ups! Ahhhh alas I must try once again! Well if independant travelling/backpacking is a religion and Lonely Planet is the bible, right now I am about the equivalent of the anti-christ of travel :) Right now am living the life of a prima donna - and just on the side - it is a pretty good lifestyle :) I wake up, have some breakfast, hit poolside, read, sunbake (try to avoid getting too burnt - darn pasty Melbourne Winter skin), read, drink, have massages, read some more, swim some more, go have a relax in my room, then think about going out to the night ... read more
