A second home

A travel blog entry by miller.r.lowe

... guy outside of being my boss though. And of course lastly but maybe most importantly Nic, well, and Gav. Loved those two, Nic is impossible not to love she just has such a friendly awesome personality. And Gav, well, Gav is a cock unless he's drunk :) not seriously though all of these people and more were unbelievable, and I hope to see them all again.

As for events, The world cup party was a blast, and my self stitched sumo wrestler costume was just one of those ...

... is still on the list!! I am so confused, it is wayy too much for me!!! Making a decision? A that kind of a decision???!!! To delete one of those from my list, is not an easy choice.
I decided to think all that through on a nearby, Mabul Island!
Once I got there tho..seeing all the crystal clear water, I forgot what the meaning of ''choice'' means. I was in heaven all my ''problems'' were gone. (''problems'' cos probably that's the best problem I had in my life ...

Diving, Machine Guns, Pride and Dogs in Borneo

... on each dive. Giant turtles mating, sharks, sting rays, magnificent corals, schools of jack fish, tuna and barracuda and hundreds of fish. I asked him if he felt afraid at all. He said, 'only when a current was pushing him into the middle of a school of barracuda', Apparently they have razor sharp teeth and can bite. He loved Sipandan and we celebrated that evening with a bottle of red!!

Borneo! Semporna, Sepilok, KK&Pulau Tiga

A travel blog entry by rachelsmith1086


... He just made us all laugh all day. I was glad we had had a chance to visit one of the islands but the weather was still so bad we decided to leave the next day and not risk another day of storms. The next Morning we headed to Sandakan on the bus, the bus went quick but there were not toilet stops for 5 hours and we had to listen to a small boy singin a song and playing a ukelele on repeat for the whole tip nearly! We then got a taxi ride to Sepilok. The place where were rating ...

Time for a beach audit

... had also been kidnapping of tourist by Muslim radical groups a few years ago also so there was a good military presence. Once again we accompanied a boat full of divers and were on our own to explore the area while everyone else was doing their scuba thing. It was a great day and except for being on a much smaller scale the coral and fish were as good as the barrier reef off the coast of Belize. The only downer was that is started ...

    We stayed in one of the dorm rooms and it was really nice and cleaned daily. We did some diving through them also. The divemaster, Haefiz, was good but they messed up the days we were supposed to dive and we ended up going diving, waking at 6am, after arriving at 1 am the night before diving after a full days travelling. Taliking to others they had messed up quite a few trips and reservations of other people also, so the management seem to be very dis-organised.
