Preparing for Kudat

A travel blog entry by cramow

... hotel for 9 to pack for our mini trip away. If we've organised it right we're going to be getting an 8am bus to kudat which should take around 4hours to get to before we're picked up by Howard, the owner of Tampat do aman and get to spend the next next 5 days relaxing on the tip of Borneo! I might have internet up there so maybe able to do my blog but if not I'll be back in civilisation on ...

A travel blog entry by wanvigdot


Eh que hi ha dies bons I dies que no ho són tant? Per nosaltres també avui hem tingut un d'aquells "moments" difícils.

We decided to eat around the corner as Little Italy and try back later for the start quiz. The meal was lovely, although I think ...

Day 77: Kota Kinabalu Fun

A travel blog entry by mfln31

Today's entry is just a short one (with no photos) as I'm on my way to being drunk and apparently we have to get up unreasonably early tomorrow to see the baby orangutans.

After a good breakfast this morning (including hash browns and beans) we took a small boat to Mamutik island. It was kind of like a tropical paradise, at least it would have been without the other tourists and if I didn't have burnt shoulders. Still, it was great to walk on the white sand and swim in the clear ...
