Hubs and I are off travelling in a few days and I’m beginning to think we may have bitten off more than we can chew.
This time around, we have [dis]organised the entire trip ourselves, and apart from needing to book a train/boat or two, we’re pretty much sorted….I hope! If not we may be sleeping on park benches!
We’re off to Peninsula Malaysia for three weeks and now I’ve seriously scrutinized our itinerary, it’s beginning to dawn on me that there’s a fair whack of travelling involved.
Getting lost is highly probable, but, we have compasses and maps….
and we can speak forty languages between us, and blend in anywhere.
it all begins with a 12 hour flight to Singapore, oh, how I loathe flying!
Once on the ground we have to locate the first coach-shuttle service, then, three coaches later, if we do find Melaka, we shall chill for a couple of days.
A local bus, and an express bus shall then whisk us off to Kuala Lumpur, where we stay the night, then, we get to hang out in…
Getting there requires a four hour drive and a three hour boat trip, which takes us to the heart of a 130 million year old rain forest for a week.
It’s very remote and home to a host of wildlife, utter heaven for me, and hopefully, hubs too!
After that it’s back to KL by car and boat for a night, then it’s off to Penang, hopefully by train. If we arrive there we shall relax for another couple of days …..then…..we get to visit another place of my dreams.
The Island of Langkawi.
A heavenly place where we get to island hop and enjoy another pristine rain forest for a week.
Simply can’t wait!
From there…..welllll….. maybe we’ll book a flight back to Singapore, and if we can’t we’ll just hitch a lift, we do have a few days there before returning home.
It’s all still a little vague to be utterly truthful. Hardly any trains/boats/coaches are booked. We intend on just hopping on them while we’re there, just like the locals do!
If we do manage to find all these stations/jetties etc, we’ll be laughing.
As I said, we have compasses, maps, wind-up torches and leech socks, what else could we possibly need.
Actually, we don’t have leech socks yet…where do you buy them????
I’m hoping mushrooms like these will be served up everywhere we go!
A very happy Lunar New Year to one and all.
I shall catch up with you all when I get home, see? Ever the optimist!
Here’s to you all having some decent weather, I’ll order in some sunshine, after all I shall be overdosing on the stuff!
