As you may have noticed, or not, I have been off the grid. Taking a holiday of sorts. Some of you have missed my updates & for those of you who think this is mindless drivel, well, you have probably welcomed the break.
To catch you up to speed, after I left KL, I headed north to Penang, foodie capitol of Malaysia. Unfortunately, I was sick as a dog & spent 3 days confined to bed. Not a blogworthy episode. trust me.
I moved onto the Perhentians, which are lovely, but sleepy islands on the east coast of Malaysia. I spent my days like this: breakfast. dive. lunch. dive. shower. nap. eat. sleep. repeat. Again, not particularly blog worthy .
Then I got sidetracked & on a whim (the beauty of long term travel) hopped on a plane & headed back to Indonesia. My favorite place on earth. I met up with a friend & spent 17 days diving, eating, and generally laying around. NOT. BLOG. WORTHY.
But now I am back on the adventure trail in Kota Kinabalu in Malaysian Borneo. I plan to to some jungle trekking, river cruising, orangutan gazing & yes, more diving.
Leaving Nusa Lembongan, Bali was a bit of a problem. All the “fast boats” were full so we were relegated to the local boat. No problem I thought when i saw it. I mean, so what if I am squeezed between chickens & watermelons. But imagine my surprise when the above Local boat was not the local boat i was riding, it was this lovely little gem.
So there you have it folks, my last month in a nutshell.
But before i go I just have to say: WTF Iowa? Michelle Bachmann, REALLY?
