Hello, guys! I’m sorry for not adding new posts for such a long time! I really missed you during this time and I was right about to write a post several times, but… there was always something that changed my plans. To start with, I worked a lot. With so many new projects I was responsible for, I got really tired and exhausted. My work, however, didn’t prevent me from enjoying my passion for traveling. I’ve been to several countries during this time. If you travel as much as I do (and I bet, you do!), you shouldn’t be explained that there is sometimes no opportunity to find free Wi-Fi. That is another reason for my long absence. Fortunately, I’m back now and I’m ready to describe one of my journeys right now - the one ... read more

So, travelling on from Siem Reap, we took a trip down to Kuala Lumpur to see what it had to offer. My husband had visited there before and stated there 'was not much there', but still I wanted to see for myself, and also to visit the famous Batu caves! We literally had 36 hours in which to see all of this city and it's surrounding but seeing as I did New York highlights in a day, I was confident that we could crack this one out in no time.We arrived later afternoon into Kuala Lumpur airport and after a speedy trip on the KLIA, we arrived at our hotel, that had an incredible view of the Petronas towers! Fantastic! Of course, the best time to enjoy the sites of this city are at night as ... read more

There was an element of surprise in my recent vacation with my husband – I didn’t know where we were headed! I did have my share of dropped hints and took (intelligent!) guesses and wasn’t too far from the mark! The check in staff at the airport handed us our boarding passes, the first to Kuala Lumpur and the second one to Siem Reap and were clueless as to why i seemed like such a happy camper! It was an AirAsia flight from Hyderabad and as it was a low cost carrier, it had no in-flight entertainment as in movies and the likes, no warm fuzzy blankets to keep you warm and no privileged seating for the well-heeled However, the staff were warm, the pilots witty, the landings smooth and this is what mattered the most! ... read more

On the 2nd of December, I flew from Sydney to Kuala Lumpur to meet my parents half way... Not so much half way as my flight was 8.5hours and my parents had a 18 hour flight (I think I got the better deal)!   So I arrived and found that I was at KLIA2 and the parents went to meet me at KLIA... Whoops! Anyway after what felt like forever, I finally saw mum and dad and after hugs we journeyed to our hotel, Aloft which is adjacent to the main gravel portal (it already sounds futuristic)!! We checked in to a wonderful room which we shared, I had a king size bed to myself and it was amazing! My parents lost their luggage on the way over but luckily it arrived at about 10pm the ... read more

We've been to KL a few times before so a couple of nights stop over on our way to Brunei left us looking for something a little bit different to do. It began with a busy arrivals hall at KLIA2, the second terminal at the International Airport which is dominated by the operations of Air Asia. Of course the terminal had been in the news very recently after the assassination of the half-brother of the leader of North Korea. We hadn't even considered the possibility of any lingering nerve agent and so we passed happily through. It was nearly two weeks later that the authorities conformed the terminal was toxin free! KLIA Express is a high speed train connecting the airport to the city centre in just 28 minutes. Add on 5 minutes for terminal 2 ... read more

So we are OFF on our third Asia trip travelling together, first stop Kuala Lumpur via Amsterdam. Skyscanner produced the most bargainous flights ever - £309 return with the lovely KLM, with only an hour transfer time in Schipol each time. We couldn't believe it! I realised this time that last time my insurance wouldn't have been valid as I was way over the 31 days allowed on my annual policy. Whoops. Rookie error! Phoned up this time and extended for £14. That would have been a VERY expensive mistake. Incidentally, I was surprised to find very few people blogging this year. Apparently there's a bug in the system, so I'm going to publish this and see if it shows up anywhere. So no actual travel done yet! Testing, testing.......... read more

Da har vi lagt bak oss noen dager i Malaysias hovedstad Kuala Lumpur. Vi har slappet av, spist mye god mat og vært på en guidet tur i byen. På den guidet turen i Kuala Lumpur var vi selvfølgelig innom en budda. Denne buddaen var plassert i en fjellhule lang oppe på en fjelltopp. Var sinnsykt bratt og mange trappetrinn. Er nok veldig viktig for de troende å avlegge denne plassen et besøk. Var noen som krabbende opp på alle fire, en i rullestol de bumpet opp og ned trappene. Håper virkelig at de var forsiktige på veien ned... om ikke ville det bli siste reis for vedkommende. Kom også noen merkelig mannfolk dansende opp trappene. Trur kanskje man blir et bedre menneske om man besøker tempelet dansende med ryggen full av fiskekroker! En kveld tok ... read more

Da er vi på farten igjen. Denne ferien er planlagt for over 6 mnd siden. Men reiselederen hadde ikke prioritert å planlegge innholdet i ferien. Når det var kun uker igjen til avreise var gode råd dyre. Vi hadde kun flybilletter til Singapore, ingen planer for hvor vi skulle reise, ingen transport eller hotell! Kontaktet Ibsen Reiser i Oslo da de reklamerer for at de er gode på planlegging og gjennomføring av innholdsrike ferier. De har lagt opp en innholdsrik tur for oss med alle hotell, transport og opplevelser underveis. Med andre ord... vi behøver ikke tenke på noe som helst, alt er ordnet! Turen består i hovedsak av å reise rundt i Malaysia, en uke på Borneo og noen dager i Singapore! Vi dro hjemmefra tidlig på morgenen og første etappe på reisen var Gardermoen ... read more

After a very smooth border crossing, we drove into Malaysia. And what a breath of fresh air it was. Lots of lush fields and space. Houses look good and gardens well cared for, and not much rubbish in evidence. Not sure our mini-bus driver took the shortest route, but we eventually arrived in Georgetown on Penang island. Wow what a lovely place. The old colonial town is being regenerated with street art and maps showing where the traditional crafts are still being carried out. It was a shame we only had a couple of days there, and it is certainly a place I would like to come back to. And then on to Kuala Lumpur, the bustling capital. We are staying at the back of one of the massive shopping malls (what a shame!). Until the ... read more

18th Jan: I enjoyed my hostel breakfast out on the balcony looking out over the mountains behind Ipoh. I got chatting to a guy who had been staying in my dorm, we booth commented on how we liked the chilled out vibe Ipoh has going on. I was really jealous when he was telling me about travelling to Thailand in the 80s, and how beautiful and different it was back then. I really wish I could time travel. I almost didn't make it out of the hostel because when I got to the bottom of the stairs the metal door was locked. Luckily, there were some keys in reception so I could unlock the door. It took about ten minutes to walk to the station and I waited for my train, which was on time. The ... read more
