a trip by Matt Hassam
From: July 22nd 2019
Until: August 22nd 2019

After the most settled year I've had since 2005 (having returned with Linda to the same town, same home and same job as before, after our trip to Europe in mid-2018) it's finally time to shake off the cobwebs and escape from the wet and windy Fremantle winter, for our first foray into Eastern Asia. (I know, I must be the oldest Australian backpacker never have been to South East Asia - but I've never really been one to follow the herd...) First up, two weeks of cultural immersion on the Malay Peninsula; after that, two weeks of immersion in nature on the island of Borneo!
