    16 0ctober - fly KL to Kota Kinabalu, Borneo's capital

    I was ready to ditch KL's bustle and haze for greener pastures...so arriving to an overcast, rather charmless city I was a little unsure what to expect.

    The plan: get my dive Padi, the aim: get fit, lose inches, get a lush tan and switch off from the world with underwater explorations ✌
    The reality: learn to dive in the rain, storms battering the course's island base, see very little due to ...

    ... glad we hadn't to Kinabalu as karlies knees were hurting. Looking we only have a 100k walk to do when we get back into aus!!! The waterfall was pretty nice though so the trek was worth it and we both enjoyed doing some physical exercise. We finished the day off by sitting in the hot springs soaking our legs.

    ... took the kids off to Gardens by the Bay, which has just received UNESCO listing I think. Here is her account!

    The kids and I arrived at the gardens at 9.30 after packing up all our bags. We entered the flower dome and found it to be freezing cold (we are used to 30+ and this must have been well below 20!) The flower displays were beautiful but too cold to hang about and read all the information. We moved on to the cloud dome which had a huge waterfall ...

    ... There are something like 600 species of butterfly, 300 of ginger (really? I thought there was only pickled and normal!) and the area has more than 1/3 of the different species of wild cats. Plus all the primates (more than 20 species) and many thousands of marine species as part of the ‘coral triangle’ – it was amazing to see all that we are about to experience in the coming month or so.

    Briefing complete, we enjoyed a reception put on by the hotel/marina ...
