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

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
