TO GO OR NOT TO GO - We last left off in Timor where we had decided to make our way to Sabah, Borneo via …
... enjoy it fully...and so I did..But that thought choice was chaicing me and It couldn't leave me alone. I hated it...the isladn was so amazing and I just wanted to forget about the whole world, but I was forced by my stupid mind to just think and focus on that one thing. Chatting with people arround about my confusion, thinking they might be a good help, was indeed a plus...I have made my decision...finally!!! I am going to Myanmar...That's It..I finally knew!!!

We stayed here as it was a requirement for our diving. A little dissapointed in this as there were other places in Semporna of better value. We stayed in the dorms to save a little cash and unfortunately for us one of the beds squeeked terribly resulting in little sleep. On the positive side, the fresh towels, shampoo and hot showers were nice after a day in the sea. It was clean enough and a good place to meet up with fellow travellers.
