      On Friday, after some last minute shopping, we flew to Kota Kinabalu, and then took a long taxi ride to our resort. It had a charming beachside setting, with views over the bay. It is owned by an Australian, and there were 2 sheep wandering around the grounds! Unfortunately, the litter which had washed up on the beach spoiled the area somewhat. Plastic is probably the biggest scourge of the modern world. On Saturday, we ventured into town ...

      ... the boat, a couple and their parents who were snorkeling, another couple from Halesowen who had done over 1000 dives between them and us, the newbies! We travelled out about 30 mins to a place just off Gaya island, we did the basic drills in shallow water and the dive instructor took us out a little further, although Si was having few issues with his buoyancy and just feeing a little panicked. We got out for lunch and went back to do a ...

Home in time to relax in some aircon before we head out to dinner with Dr Ana, our supervisor, as a ...

      ... we were getting itchy feet, so early the next morning made our way to the bus station in search of a ride to Sepilok.

      We struggled to feel as though we were ‘back-packing’ on our bus journey from KK to Sepilok; the brand new, double-decker air-conditioned bus had leather seats and a flat screen TV! All of our subsequent bus journeys have been just as plush, Zoe’s only complaint is the extremely violent foreign movies they keep playing, ...

      ... cost 50p, quite expensive really. Things were more expensive generally in KK. The bus dropped me off at the beach and there were only a few people around, perfect! Backed by palms and big tropical trees, the beach was pretty so I spent the day swimming in the hot sea and sitting reading my Kindle (best gift ever) under a big tree to offer the well needed shade.
