Crossing over

A travel blog entry by s.lukaszewicz


So my plan was to go to Myanmar...somehow tho, not sure how, my sense of direction turned out to be really bad. Clearly my compass did not work well this time...or should I say it simply knew what its doing?
I got out of the boat from Mabul Island...not even 12 h after I was on the way to Tawau in order to cross the border to Indonesia.
It was quite an experience.
Strike one...At the Tawau port the ship was ready to go, the only problem was I was not. ...

Day 269/271 Scuba diving / Submarinisme

A travel blog entry by wanvigdot

Lots of pictures in my camera to show you. Next stop was the Proboscis monkey sanctuary. Latin For nose, these monkeys are definitely ...

Borneo; proper planning prevents piss poor results

A travel blog entry by jennystolborg


Winging it, so to speak, has worked well for us on our trip so far but here in Borneo it all seems to have come a little bit unstuck. Our aims for Borneo were to see the Orangutans and do a little bit of diving. After this we didn't have any plans and usually this has worked well, as you often meet people who say "oh you should visit such and such a place". This happened whilst we were in Mabul, we were recommended to visit a place called The Danum Valley which ...
