    Stinky shit hole and dishonest owner. Sea too polluted to swim in, no beach, people quite nice though. Check out the cheesy karaoke/girly bars on Singapore Road!

    Great value at £12 a night. We got a welcome lemongrass brew and banana fritters from a family recipe on arrival. Free wifi, and pancakes tomorrow for breakfast.

    Off to Sardine Can, Borneo

    A travel blog entry by kenax on Apr 30, 2014

    After staying in D'Geting almost a month and finally meeting with the important customs people, I was told that they simply cannot give me a permit to enter the country with my bike without the original, Thai-manufactured license plate (a two month process to produce in Bangkok, for some reason). And supposedly my name was not registered in the …

    Had a good night sleep (thank goodness). Woke up early to carry out project 'Get to Sandakan'. We needed to get a taxi to take us to the bus stop where we could get a bus to take us to the bus station where we would find a bus to Sandakan. Complicated, I know! The plan was:
    Leave the hostel at 8.00am.
    Get a taxi to the first bus stop. …

Tumbling it's creams and sliding along in the mud and generally ambling along like a small child. The strange thing was that like a zombie no matter how slow it appeared to be moving it kept gaining on us. The humidity of the rain forest and heat took it's toll and as I flagged a bit and at the same time became more confident that it would do no harm let it catch ...

    ... t help that we had to leave our water at the entrance. We chilled by the pool, had a swim then headed back to the orangutans for their 3pm feeding. We had read that it was quieter and provided a more personal experience. At the entrance to the facility is a small cafe which we went into for some lunch, as we only had 45 minutes until the feeding started. We ordered a cheese and a chicken sandwich, which was a nice change, it was our first food away from the resort. The man on the ...

    No vam arribem a veure cap tortuga ponent els ous. Una d’elles va arribar a la sorra un dia després de mitjanit però per raons de seguretat no estava permès caminar per l’illa després de la mitjanit. Per protegir les tortugues, tampoc ...
