... chucked it down, it was definitely the heaviest rain I'd ever seen so the jungle path was still damp. I didn't think it would be too much of a problem until I looked down at my legs to see I had a leech feasting on my blood! Thankfully we'd come prepared with salt sachets so after a quick empty of the sachet it dropped off, although leaving a nice trickle of blood down my leg. Luckily I only got a couple on my legs during the trek, compared to Sharif who must have been ...
... in length just watching us from the path. I didn't know whether to jump in excitement or run away scared! In the end it slowly moved across the path into the forest as we continued along the trail. I had read you could take a side path along the trail to find a secluded part of the island with amazing views of the other islands and would you believe It we did! Not another soul in sight as we sat down with our feet in the clear warm water ...
... the road on the way here were almost as impressive Misery **** is wearing a blue tooth headset. Not sure who she's expecting a call from at 1.5 km up a mountain, but clearly she's too much of a high flyer to be ******* about using her hands. It starts to rain a bit so I go balls out and wear my minion hat for the rest of the tour. The guide starts singing like a minion at me.

Really lovely staff, very helpful. Free breakfast (toast and tea and coffee) until 10am but you can help yourself and we were able to have hot drinks all day. The staff were helpful when booking a climb up Mount Kinabalu, and always smiling. A wonderful balcony that views into the forest with views of butterflies and sometimes monkeys. A lovely little chill out spot.
Only minus is the walls are thin and the floors, so people who are noisy are a pain but there are plenty of signs asking guests to be considerate!
