... the size of the Malayan Sun Bear found on mainland SE Asia. Deciding we'd seen what the area had to offer we headed back to Sandakan with the whole afternoon ahead of us which came as a surprise. In our research we'd established Sandakan city didn't have much to offer and the half day river cruises would have all left for the day which left us with a dilemma; stay the night and travel to KK the following day, stopping in Ranau en route to visit the ...

... wild creatures, untamed in every which way and totally wary and afraid of humans in general. Which is of course the way it should be; it puts both us and the animals in danger if they do become too familiar.

That said, we must have had someone looking out for us because on the way in we came across a herd of Bornean Pygmy elephants at the side of the road! They bolted before we were even close of course but just seeing them was amazing! There were about 30-40 of ...

Everyone's getting on well... so far... lol

Over & out for now

Another quick ...

... it though, your bum will be wet afterwards? and it makes the floor really wet for others to walk in. Not very pleasant.

We had about 9 hours to kill in KL before our next flight to Sandakan in Borneo. It was 4:30am and not long enough to go anywhere else so we slept in Kuala Lumpur airport for a bit. We then realised we were in the wrong terminal for Air Asia so had to rush and get a train to the other terminal. I was suffering with a ...
