    The Climb to Mt Kinabalu and a lost trekking pole

    ... we could not wait. Apparently, the Australian POW'S on the death marches all despised the mountain because of how menacing it looked. We were afraid, however, of the final climb to the summit being cancelled. We had met some Australians a month ago who climbed to 3200 metres, only to have the final attempt on the summit cancelled due to poor weather. On their climb, they had met a German who had climbed Kinabalu 8 times and had the final summit attempt cancelled 8 times due ...

    Last beach and last pub quiz

    ... and mint crushed ice drink. We had really wanted to win the quiz with it being our last night, unfortunately we didn't despite being only one point away from the win in two out of the three rounds. A shame we couldn't win but it was another good night with the three of us as we stayed a bit longer and had some more beer. I still can't believe it's our last day in KK tomorrow and can't imagine the thought of having to pack after almost 8 weeks in our small hotel room we'd called ...

    ... pay a boatman to take me to Dinawan Island where I could snorkel free! The main ferry terminal offered ferry boats for an arm and a leg but they had the same boats as the local shuttle boats that only charged 5! There were 5 German lads on my little boat with me but they had paid 30 each to go to an island further out to sea so the boatman dropped me off first at my little island saying I must be at the jetty at 3pm for pickup. Three fingers were held up ...

    ... the snorkelling with all our shoulders and backs bright red, despite the suntan lotion. We went to seek shade from the sun and sat and ate our picnic lunch, as well as the passion fruit cake we bought to share. Afterwards, to stay out of the shade more, we went on a walk along the jungle trek though the island to spot some monitor lizards. Unfortunately we only saw a couple of small ones, nowhere near the size of the ones we'd previously seen on the other islands. It was ...

    Back to KK

    ... in Kudat. This was definitely one of the highlights from our time in Borneo and I would love to come back here in the future one day. Luckily one of the shared taxis to KK needed two more people to fill up the car so we jumped into the back and got on the road straight away. So that was us for the next 3 hours until we arrived back to KK around 3 and headed straight to KFC for a late lunch. The rest of the afternoon ...
