Before I start, we’re in Malaysia!
After an uneventful flight to Kuala Lumpur and finding a place to stay we spent the following days exploring the city. We figured out the subway system, visited the Petronas towers (day and night), climbed up the 270 odd stairs into Batu Caves and bartered at the markets.
We really enjoyed our time in Kuala Lumpur but we came to Malaysia for some island hopping. Unfortunately we were restricted to the east coast due to the monsoon on the west coast.
We’ve been on Perhentian Island for 5 days and both feel that we need a change of scenery and can get more out of our time travelling. Asia has been an eye opening place to visit and we’ve really enjoyed our time here but we’re both ready for a bit of a change from beaches, beach life and islands.
So we’re off to South Africa! It was quite an easy choice and somewhere we’ve both always wanted to go back to to visit family, old homes, old schools, Sun City, Gold Reef City, etc. (we were born there).
We’re off to Bali in a few days as planned and we’ll be heading to SA some time in July.
