      I chose this hotel since I had an early morning flight out and didn't want to risk getting stuck in traffic if stayed in the city. The hotel is located very close to the airport (5 minutes from Terminal 2 - Air Asia) and 10 minutes from Kota Kinabalu International Airport. The hotel also provides a free shuttle service as well.

      The room was basic but comfortable and while the hotel is not located in the city per se, the city center can very easily be reached by taking a taxi for about 15 ringgit. You could also possibly walk into the city if you have time to kill and want to catch some rays.

      We left KK on the 12th and headed to the main body of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur. I sense that this will be the last time we will ever visit Borneo.

      I remember when we first started traveling together, Borneo was extremely high on my bucket list. Ever since I was a child, I had been fascinated by stories of early man, of where we had come from …

      Free food in theatre and Eva & Megan arrive

      A travel blog entry by barnicko on Aug 27, 2014

      Will and I spent the morning in theatres watching a few elective Caesarean sections, while Max waited at the wrong terminal to pick up his girlfriend Eva and her friend Megan. Theatre was interesting, and the consultant made us feel welcome which was nice. We were also offered a free lunch which was delicious! On our way home, it was raining harder than you could ever imagine, and even on our short ...

      ... a grotty dump where I had to wait but as people arrived who were catching the same boat it was like a full on party! I had to have photos taken with just about everyone there and I was treated like a celebrity! We all had been allocated seat numbers on the speedboat and mine was at the side where the blazing sun was shining on me. There was a lot of commotion before we set off and I was forced to change seats with the man next to the driver, in the middle at ...

      ... International Climbathon is now held; with the quickest times
      for male, female, veteran, etc being recorded. The oldest person to climb to
      the summit is a 90 year old Japanese lady! For some reason known only to
      himself Mr John has said ‘NO’ to the two day challenge.
      We spent about an hour at Kinabalu National Park; one of us walking some of the easier trails!
      After leaving the Park we headed for the Kundasang War Memorial ...

      ... it was relentless 'burn your face off hot' only with the added super high humidity and it is at this point that we started to realize what eyebrows are made for- sweat catchers!! Kota Kinabalu or, KK as it is known, is really just somewhere to connect to inward travel, book permits and grab a nights accomodation where necessary. The centre of KK is in a grid formation and easy to navigate, having said that, we wanted to ...
