Indonesian rafting 🤪
Toady we arrived at the boarder of the jungle 🌴🌿🌱🌴🌿🌱, tomorrow we‘ll go on jungle trekking for 2 days. I‘m reaaaaaaaally curious about it! What kind of animals I’m going to see.... maybe Orang Utans? And what animals I’m going to hear at night, when we sleep in the jungle...
But this is tomorrow... Today I’m going to jump into the water, because we have our own private „pool“ in the river. The people love to do „local“ rafting here and that’s what I‘m going to do at the end of our jungle trekking or after it: raft along the river 🤪. So I assume today and the next three days are going to be awesome ❤️.Read more
We had a bit delay, so we only have 3h overlay here in Kuala Lumpur.
They have free water cooler here - that’s definitely a great thing! It’s the first airport here in Asia I saw this. They use the regular water cooler used in offices.
I know the water refill and drinking stations at airport hamburg, but since we have pretty good tap water 💦 in Hamburg, it’s not *that* exceptional.Read more
This is a pretty cozy airport, relaxed and very well organized, although it’s the third biggest airport in Vietnam 🇻🇳. It is located in the *middle* of the town, you can go there by foot (if you like 🤪, I know, I know you think I did, but I didn’t). The only thing which you have to keep in mind is, that you have to pass the document check counter in addition to the security check. Although the security check is pretty fast, the document check takes quite a while, because they check the document of every passenger. They move pretty fast, but there are a lot of people.
The only thing which is weird: the stores are amazingly expensive. We tried to get rid of our last dongs (8€) but is was not possible, because there was nothing for 8€ 😳.
So now boarding starts to Kuala Lumpur...Read more
After our train 🚂 ride we arrived pretty relaxed in Da Nang for an overnight 🌝 stay 🛌. Although our train left an hour too late in Dieu Tri, we managed to arrive in time here. I definitely prefer traveling by train 🚂 over bus 🚌 , plane ✈️ or car 🚗 . It’s a pity that either it takes too long over long distance or that there are not so many cities connected by trains in general. But for traveling between big cities not that far away from each other it’s *the* choice.
Tomorrow we have a longer distance to go (Sumatra 🗾), so we need to go by plane ✈️ - “pigs transport” 🐖 🐖 🐖 as Rainer likes to call it 🤪.Read more
This is our „breakfast view“. Today’s task was to think about where to go from here. So we decided to leave tomorrow and go by car 🚙 to the train station in Dieu Tri and travel by train 🚂 to Da Nang. We will stay there over night and fly ✈️ the next day over Kuala Lumpur to Medan on Sumatra 🗾. So tomorrow and the day after we will be on the road 🛤 again...Read more
