Next stop Borneo

We've really enjoyed Kuala Lumpur. It's a really exciting and vibrant city with some great things to see. A real mix of the old and new and the East and West. Just enough home comforts to make it easy but lots of things that are different and keep it interesting.

Next up is a 2 3/4 hour flight across the South China Sea to the island of Borneo. Borneo is divided by 3 nations, Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei (home of the oil rich sultan with the gold plated bog brushes). The Malaysian part is further sub divided into the states of Sabah and Sarawak.

We'll be spending the next 2 weeks exploring the jungles and rainforests of Sabah where hopefully we'll get to see some of the local wildlife whilst avoiding the leeches (we've brought some leech socks just in case!)
