Where we rested our heads

Hotel Round-up

We slept in 58 different beds on our five month trip. Sometimes we slept on mats, other times we slept on the most luxorious beds in the world. We slept in huts, guesthouses, with local Vietnamese families, on trains and planes, in hostel dorms, in five star resorts, friends’ houses, and even in treehouses 150 meters off the ground.

We took pictures of the places we stayed so you can see what the more mundane part of our backpacking experience was like. Without further ado I give you Robin and Tim’s “Best of Southeast Asia Accomodation” awards. More


Blowing in the Wind

All Over Malaysia

If you haven’t noticed the posts are a little behind. It’s a wonderful thing to be able to float around and catch a ferry or bus whenever we are ready to head to a new place, but it’s hard to keep up with all the places we pass through. Each place always has it’s own charm, and a story to tell but for the sake of keeping the blog up to date I thought I would do an overview of the rest of Malaysia. At some point I’d like to revisit some of the places, because they certainly are worthy of their own posts.

Kuala Lumpur

The capital city was truly an East meets West experience. More

Jungle Love

Western Sabah, Malaysia

If you’ve never given much thought to the large island in Southeast Asia known as Borneo, I’ll go over the basics. The Island is split between the nations of Malaysia (where we were), Indonesia, and the very small Kingdom of Brunei. The other important thing about Borneo is that it is home to some of the most diverse plant life and animals anywhere in the world.

We spent a good amount of time on the Kinabatangan River, cruising around and doing some trekking, here are some highlights: More

Where’s Wally: Malaysia

Today Wally is hanging out on Mamutik Island (off of Kota Kinabalu, Sabah in Borneo). The islands off the coast are filled with reefs that are excellent for diving. It’s rainy season right now and the visibility can be bad – but Wally doesn’t mind because it’s a sunny day on land. The large komodo dragon that just came out of the forest on the other hand, has Wally a little concerned – so back in the bag he’ll go.
