We needed a break from beaches and cheap stuff so whats the most expensive country in the world to live In. Well singapore claims that dubious distinction for itself. Flying out of Cambodia was only a shock in that we left a 3rd world airport to land In probably the most modern airport in the world. After a somewhat slow immigration we were off by taxi to the Park Avenue Rochester hotel. Very nice rooms. But no free breakfast. No big deal as we were within a block of dozens of eateries. Also one block from a major MRT station with two different subway lines. These subways are amazing clean safe and fast. Only 5 or 6 minutes between trains. Just look at the colored map on the wall pay your 80 cents and get on ... read more

Cette fois, Kuala Lumpur a été notre oasis ! Nous sommes restés 3 nuits dans un studio dans un hôtel classe, avec piscine sur le toit, salle de sport etc. Nous sommes arrivés à l'hôtel tard le soir et avons dîné dans une pizzeria - j'ai mangé une pizza au bleu et au miel, miam miam ! Le lendemain, nous sommes allés faire du shopping pour remplacer les choses cassées/perdues au cours de ces 3 mois et demi! Shaun avait besoin de nouvelles chaussures de marche. Nous avons dépensé pas mal d'argent dans un nouvel adapteur (vu que ceux qu'on achète moins cher cassent en moins de 2 ou bien ne chargent pas !), de nouveaux câbles USB, et un chargeur portable chacun (Shaun a gentiment laissé son super chargeur portable dans un aéroport pour qui ... read more

From Koh Lanta we booked a van down to Penang in Malaysia. The journey was around 12 hours in total and it was our first overland border crossing. Other than a Thai bloke getting the hump with us for questioning why he needed more money of off us it all went pretty smoothly. When we entered Malaysia we didn’t really expect to stay there as long as we ended up doing so as we kind of thought we would be there for a couple of weeks and then head across to spend some time in either Indonesia or Phillipines but in the end we made the judgement that our budget probably wouldn’t stretch that far and we felt like we would be trying to cram in too much in too short a time. I’d been to ... read more

Mein Flieger landete mit Verspätung am Flughafen in Kuala Lumpur und ich verspürte sofort dieses befriedigende Gefühl als ich den Ausgang erreichte – eine schwüle Wärme! Mit einem Haufen grün-glitzernder Scheine im Portemonnaie machte ich mit einem Shuttle auf den Weg zu meinem Hostel. Bisher hatte ich fleißig über gebucht und auch über Agoda hatte ich bereits günstige Hostels gefunden. Das Hostel in dem ich ein eincheckte hieß BackHome und es hielt was es versprach – back to Germany. Doch darauf werde ich später zurückkommen. Ich verließ trotz Warnung der Rezeptionisten das Hostel und machte mich auf die Suche nach etwas Essbarem. Sie hatte mir empfohlen nachts nicht alleine umherzulaufen, doch ich fühlte mich keineswegs unsicher und kehrte im Restaurant um die Ecke ein. Hier erhielt ich eine Karte mit der ich absolut nichts anfangen ... read more

Désolée, cet article est encore en anglais ! Je suis fatiguée et c'est difficile pour moi d'écrire français correctement : toutes les activités et les endroits que nous visitons sont en anglais dans ma tête ! We arrived in Kuala Lumpur and easily found a tourist bus to take us to our accommodation near Petaling Street, in Chinatown. We had chosen to get a private room in a hostel but as a double bedroom was too expensive, we got a bunk bed! The hostel isn't very nice but it is quite clean. It was 4pm and, as we hadn't had a proper breakfast nor lunch, we were quite hungry so we went to a Food Hall. We couldn't understand most of the food names so we opted for a fairly safe chicken fried rice. We took ... read more

We pack, and the resort minibus drives us to the jetty. Issy says that she is feeling very emotional. I am too. We have had a very good time here on Pulau Redang. There seem to be very few people here. We can only put this down to it being late in the season and too close to the monsoon, but the weather has been almost perfect. We catch the resort’s speedboat back to Merang Jetty on the mainland. We get off the speedboat with our luggage. I panic. I can’t find my black backpack. This is not good. It has our tickets and passports in it, as well as my camera, my iPad and the keys to our suitcases. I have visions of us being stuck here in Malaysia for a long time. I think ... read more

D. 28/07-31/07 2017 Så ankom vi efter en ca 16 timers flyve tur endelig til Kuala Lumpur! Og vi har på de første 3 dage allerede oplevet en del, kun mødt af positive mennesker og oplevelser, så alt er godt her. På første dag valgte vi, at tage til KL tårnene, her fik vi os en "frokost", hvis man kan kalde det, det kl. 18... Derefter gik vi over i parken overfor tårnene, og gik en lille hyggelig aftentur, inden vi gik tilbage mod vores lejlighed for, at få en god nattesøvn. Næste dag stod vi op kl. 07 for, at komme tidligt afsted til batu caves. Da vi ankom til batu caves, blev vi mødt af en masse boder, hvor de prøvede at sælge os en masse forskelligt, heriblandt et bundt bananer som man kunne ... read more

J'ai quitté la Nz, direction Sydney pour une nuit chez Alex en couch surfing avant de reprendre l'avion pour Kuala Lumpur retrouver Samy :) J'ai découvert ce qu'était qu'être transporté comme du bétail, conditions EasyJet mais sur du long courrier... Je vais militer pr la cause vegan haha ;) Arrivé à KL, (très chaud et humide!!!) on file chez la cousine de Sam, contre toute attente c'est un palace ! Paty et Roberto sont exceptionnels. Une générosité sans limite. Je découvre la vraie nourriture mexicaine ( cherchez l'erreur, manger mexicain en Malaisie ! :) haha) La place la plus confortable de tout mon voyage !!! Je me suis amusé à faire mousse au chocolat et tarte normande avec Samy, ainsi qu'une petite combinaison de légumes. Qu'est ce que c'est cool de cuisiner dans une vraie cuisine ... read more

As always my last day at work before my vacation was hectic and I finished just in time. And I had to work looong hours daily before leaving to make sure that everything was ready before I left. It is often stressful to take a vacation but it is all worth it!I arrived in Kuala Lumpur at 2am. The capsule hotel at the airport was fully booked so I just slept on the chairs. Or at least I tried to. I was just diagnosed with mild scoliosis a month before. Sitting for long periods ... read more

You know you're travelling when you totally lose track of what day of the week it is. Another tell tale sign is out staying your welcome in a country, facilitating the need for a visa run. We wanted to stay in Indonesia for six weeks, so around 42 days. But the standard visa only allows 30 day visits. You totally take for granted that you will be allowed to enter a country for as long as you need (within reason of course). I mean, even in America, with its notoriously tough policies, you can stay for 90 days simply by applying online for a visa waiver. Had we know we were visiting Indonesia before we left the UK we could have applied for a 60 day visa at the embassy in London. But when we left ... read more
