Sungai Besar > Tapah road (86km)


Hello, today is the third day towards Cameron Highlands, our temporary destination. Thanks for the GPS coupled with Google maps to show us all the tiniest road along the way. We have cycled 60% on highway and 40% person on tiny roads even tracks sometimes. It’s much better like this, especially early morning when we are the witness of the sunrise :-)

Kuala Selangor Fireflies > Sungai Besar (65km, 4h)


We did not cycle much for that second day. The alarm rang at 6am but it was raining. Finally we left the place at 8am. We did not have any rain for the rest of the day. Today we manage to travel off the main road for the little while, it was nice, especially quiet until we reach a beach where there was a kind of Chinese event. So much things were going on: food places and other shops, kites. The traffic was jammed too. Glad we cycled further along the beach to have a nap :-)

Ampang > Kuala Selangor Fireflies (70km)


This is it, finally after one week staying in Kuala Lumpur with Sabariah an Amir’s family, we are on the road again. Thanks for your welcome guys :-) It was nice! I wish we would spend less time front of our screen and more outside but we were sooo later on our blog. Today we want to reach a town where we can observe fireflies in their natural environment. Hope it’s nice.

Ampang, new filter


Normally, we should have been gone this morning but I had an issue. I had to replace the filter of my Katadyn mini (the cap attached to the ceramic cylinder broke). I could not find any shop in KL where I could buy a replacement part so I looked online and discover this one : the Sawyer mini water filter. The brand is American (again! Everytime I find a good product today it’s coming from the U.S.). This product was cheaper than a new ceramic filter from Katadyn. It’s much lighter, easier to use, much more compact and can filter more 300.000 litres! Thanks a life time!

Kuala Lumpur > Sandakan (1848km, 2h40 by flight) > Sepilok (23km by minibus + 1km by taxi)


Here we are in Borneo! Rah, this is going to be different travelling without any bicycle. We will have to rely on public transports and I’m sure it won’t be funny everyday. Today, we want to get to Sepilok, a small village where there is a famous Orangutan Rehabilitation centre. We don’t know it but we are not going to meet orangutan the way we expected. This is jungle here!

Ampang > KL airport


The cheapest flight we have found to go to Borneo is leaving early morning. This is why we decided to go to the airport tonight and sleep there. At first, we planned to catch the train from Ampang and take a second one at some point but Amir offered us to drive us at another station so that way we did not have to hop on two trains. Thanks for this :-) The train cost 6.30Ringgit to get to KL Sentral.
