    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

    ... After the war on the edge of bankruptcy, the British North Borneo Company returned to administer Jesselton but was unable to finance the huge costs of reconstruction. They gave control of North Borneo to the British Crown on 18 July 1946. The new colonial government elected to rebuild Jesselton as the capital of North Borneo instead of Sandakan, which had also been destroyed by the war. In 1967, the government passed a bill renaming Jesselton to Kota ...

    ... He became part of our little family and we named him Richard! After a drink in the restaurant we had to decide which trail to do, there were quite a lot to chose from ranging from 1 hour to 12 hours! Joe explained the trails in detail to us and we chose the 6 hour trail (3 hrs each way) and set off with an inch thick layer of suncream and bug spray on. It was a real jungle expedition, climbing up steep paths clinging onto tree roots, jumping swamps, ducking ...

    A day to recover

    A travel blog entry by cramow on Apr 20, 2014

    I didn't really get up to much today, after the exhausting trip to Mulu I slept in till 10 before catching up on emails and news. Afterwards we headed into town for some dinner at 5 star for some lovely grilled pork and noodles. We spent the next few hours looking around some of the shops and I ended up buying some new earphones since my last pair decided to break while in Mulu. In the evening we arranged to meet up with Ahmed and the new elective student, Sam to go out for dinner. ...

    ... into the island I had read about, it was a pretty steep climb but provided us with some shelter from the sun. Eventually the path flattened out and we were on the top of the island surrounded by huge butterflies and the sound of the birds. As we walked along taking in the scenery we both came to a complete stop as we saw a huge Komodo dragon in front of us....a Komodo dragon! I couldn't believe I was actually looking at one, it must have been ...
