Borneo, Malaysia

It’s only been 10 days, most of which revolved around moneys and the mountain so I can’t really judge it. Undoubtably there is so much more I could have done here, and seen in terms of wildlife. Thing is, that pesky Amazon kind of over-shines the most brilliant of rainforests forever more! Don’t blame me, blame amazing Peru!


1) The smell of clove cigarettes. They remind me of Langkawi.
2) The return of free breakfasts in hostels. Much appreciated.
3) The inadvertent break from alcohol,  a much welcome rehab after El Nido


1) Almost every nanosecond of climbing Mt Kinabalu
2) Remembering the slightly stricter dress codes, and tiny reminders that men rule the roost here.
3) This didn’t actually bother me directly, but everyone else says it, so I’ll join in; the need for permits/planning here. Tours are slightly on the pricey side, and there’s often a wait list to do some of the things you want. No biggie.

Where I stayed:

D’Villa Kota Kinabalu National Park, Sandakan Backpackers, Akinabalu Kota Kinabalu.

Connecting to %s : The Anantasin is the name of a shipwreck just of the coast of the Sensi Parasise, Mae Haad Bay, Koh Tao, Thailand. It’s one of my many favorite places.
