“Greece in winter? It’ll be terrible!”

"Why would you want to go to Greece in the winter?" "But...If you can't go to the beaches...What will you do?" "Everything will be closed. You can't even buy water." "Oh no no no...It'll be freezing and miserable." "Greece in winter? It'll be terrible!" These are some of the comments that greeted us when we... Continue Reading →

Malaysia Final Thoughts

We fell into this trip really. We had planned to re-sign at our last university, however for several reasons we decided to move and, thanks to changing our visa, needed a simple and cheap trip for our 2 month summer break. Cheap and easy flights to Malaysia and Thailand were all we could really find... Continue Reading →

Melaka, Malaysia

Melaka was basically the last stop off on this trip, save for a final day in KL prior to our flight. Sam had visited Melaka a few years previously and was keen to show me around, which sounded great. But unfortunately we had hit school holidays. And oh my god...It was horrific. The city itself... Continue Reading →

Kuching, Malaysia

Kuching is known as the Cat city and appears to have been named after a cat. This sounded purrfect for us! But unfortunately, there were very few cats to be seen. Oh well. We had 5 days there total, and had hoped for a mixture of exploring and chilling. And that's exactly what we got.... Continue Reading →

Miri, Malaysia

After an easy and quite scenic bus trip, we arrived in Miri. We had decided to spend 3 full days there, because we had read that it isn't very good and tourists should avoid staying there. Sounds perfect right?! The town itself was in fact quite nice, and felt, for lack of a better word,... Continue Reading →

Brunei

The boat from Labuan to Brunei was easy. Getting to the capital of Bandar Seri Begawan (or BSB as the locals call it) from the port, not so easy. We and several others waited for a bus which never came...At least not until we had started to walk to the next town over. But hey,... Continue Reading →

Labuan, Malaysia

Boat trips are always fun. Not cruises of course - horrific things destroying port towns that are full of pretentious dickwads who have no idea how to travel so pay someone to lead them around and show them highlights of a place for an hour between drinks. Labuan was a few hours away from KK,... Continue Reading →

Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia

‌We were pretty excited to be setting foot in Borneo. It's somewhere we had never really envisaged going, although there was no real basis for that. However, whilst we did not really know what to expect, Kota Kinabalu (or KK as the locals call it), totally threw us. It seemed like more a run down... Continue Reading →
