        The best cheap option available

        With limited accommodation at the base of mount Kinabalu, D'Villa is your best cheap option. With up to 12 beds crammed into one small dorm room, it is defiantly a cozy night (which is needed in the cool high altitude).
        The hot showers have an immense amount of pressure, which is perfect on the cold mornings

        As planned we were up shortly before 6:00 in preparation for our sunrise beach walk. I woke up with an itchy rash across my back, possibly from the sketchy bed even though I slept with pyjamas on. I'm hoping it is just from the heat yesterday. With the rest of the group we hit the beach and found numerous turtle tracks, some very fresh but unfortunately there were no turtles. The sand on the beach wasn't the best for walking on barefoot as it contained many shards of ...

        I'm in Kota Kinabalu right now and have been here for a few days. It's the capital of the northern state of Malaysian Borneo, Sabah, and the main entry and exit point for Borneo. Most international flights go through here.

        Westerners have to be more careful in Sabah, not around KK (as the city is usually called), but along the cost to the southeast, near another city, Sandakan. Muslim terrorists from the Philippines, which is physically very close ...

        ... fish do their thing. Bewdiful.

        Then lunch. Advertised as a BBQ but actually packed egg fried rice with a smattering of what you ordered be that meat or vegetable. Not the flashest but filled a gap.

        From there the land based folk explored the island to visit the mud pool which was fun by all accounts and saw the aforementioned animals. Dave and I did our dive thing. This dive had a lot less viz, more like a NZ dive ...
