Radio Reminds Me Of My Home Faraway

A travel blog entry by mynameisden


... the trip then. Now, on to Borneo....

In the cab from the airport to the hotel the radio started playing Country Roads by the legendary John Denver. This tune is a firm family favourite, particularly loved by Kier. As we crawled through the humid evening rush hour of Kota Kinabalu, the gloaming dusk settling on another foreign cityscape it seemed exquisitely poignant. Tentatively, the Kid started to sing along, and ...

Journey to the Equator

Another early night tonight though as the alarm is set for half 4 preparation for our first planned trip of white water ...
