... here I am, on a top deck surrounded by 30 men of Indo. As soon as we started our trip the Police came for a control. I felt like in a middle of a tornado. My head was going all around from so many things happening from each side of me.
And then the moment where I saw myself jumping of board came.
Watching police swimming away, I observed all men on a deck with me, the only female, suddenly making a room on a floor was terrifying. The only thought I had was ...

... is in Lahad Datu, but hey what do I know-this lady just spoke to a local right? So we jumped in a taxi from Semporna and arrived in Tawau at 8.30pm. Straight to the hotel and up early with the hopes of going to the valleys. However I am sure you have guessed how this story goes . Tawau is mostly visited by people who want to cross over into the Indonesian side of Borneo as this is the only crossing point where foreigners can get a visa. It's an ok little town, ...

The K.M.Tawindo was scheduled to leave for Nanukan at 12noon but left 15mins late. It only took 1½hrs but cost a whopping 75 ringgits {£15}.

Upon arriving in the port i asked around at the various travel agents ...

... the most expensive. A 5-minute ride to/from the airport in KK cost a flat rate of $5. A 1-hr taxi ride to Tawau airport cost us $33 which is very expensive. Just to give you a comparison, I spent an hour in a taxi in Thailand and it cost me $10. I wanted to take a public bus to the airport but Krystoff didn't want to take a chance getting to the airport late. Well he had a point, since the local transport rarely leaves "on time." They usually ...
