Journey to the Equator

A travel blog entry by trish.coverdale


... Yey. I hired a taxi through the hotel to take me to the Equator monument 3km across town. Cheaper than trying myself! I was so excited and when we arrived I grinned like Ive never grinned before, talk about a Cheshire cat! There I was standing at long last on the equator line, a life long dream accomplished! What a great feeling and what a journey I've had along the way to get there. My driver took loads of photos for me (most of which were lobsided or had ...

A quick turn round was called for before heading off to the Club Lounge for a drink.
Now back in the room sorting photos and blogging!

Sadly we only found a huge fish market; as it turns out we didnt walk far enough down the coast. Luckily we are going to spend another night in KK before catching our flight back to KL, so will attempt to visit the night market then- watch this space! KK wins most spectacular sunset award so far and we look ...

Getting organised

A travel blog entry by cramow

... afternoon but lots of exciting plans. In the evening we headed to El Centro, a more western restaurant run by Americans which had some good reviews. I went for the Greek wrap which was very nice and then followed it with a couple of beers and the pub quiz. Me and sharif did terrible but was good fun and met a few other travellers. Afterwards we headed back to the hotel and another relatively early night of half ...
