    Tawau cityvibes

    April 16, 2019 in Malaysia ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Auch heute war nicht allzu viel los. Da es in Tawau absolut nichts zu tun gibt außer rumzuhängen haben Aril und ich irgendwann beschlossen ins Kino zu gehen... Und später sind wir wieder mit seinen friends rumgehangen und das Leben genossen. Und die Jungs wollen für Ramadan einen kleinen business eröffnen und abends Essen verkaufen. Dafür waren sie auf der Suche nach ein paar Behälter.Read more

    Tawau cityvibes

    April 15, 2019 in Malaysia ⋅ 🌧 31 °C

    Es ist nicht allzu viel los, den ganzen Tag... Aber ich hab mit Aril ein neues Handy gekauft... weil der Idiot mit seinem Iphone tauchen gegangen ist hahahhaha. So ein Depp... Aufjedenfall war da sein ganzes businesszeug drauf mit customers usw. Das heißt das musste alles erstmal gesettelt werden... Und mit Acan hab ich noch meine KUACIsucht ausgelebt. Und mit seinem Brandneuen Car durfte ich auch fahren (automatik😇) 🙏💖 es ist einfach rot. Acan ist eigentlich Grabfahrer (Taxi) , das heißt im Grunde genommen war ich mein eigener Grabdriver.🤘Read more

    Day 2 Evening / Day 3 Morning

    December 16, 2016 in Malaysia ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Another trip on a boat and with more of the same birds and animals, including the unusual proboscis monkeys again. Saw a large (1 meter long) monitor lizard resting on a tree, looking very relaxed. Once again the evening sky was lit by lightening and more baby crocs were spotted- all we could think about was 'where's the mother?'. It was a quiet start to our evening walk but thankfully the wildlife didn't disappoint in the end with a show of sleeping birds, frogs, a turtle and insects. We managed to get a very quick glimpse of a mother and baby orangutan during our morning boat ride before leaving the jungle. A bit of rest in a hammock is needed...Read more

    Borneo River Jungle

    December 14, 2016 in Malaysia ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Picked up at 7 and had a long drive (7 hours) across the island,past Mount Kinabalu, to the Borneo Natural Sakau Bilit Resort on the Kinabatangan River. Unbelievable to see the amount of palm tree plantations, all standing where jungle once stood. We had a long early evening boat ride up river and saw one of the two types of animals we really wanted to see - the proboscis monkeys with big droopy noses). There were long tailed macaques, hornbills and a wild boar too. On our return the night sky kept lighting up as a thunderstorm passed by in the distance. Our guides head torch picked up the eyes of some tiny crocodiles from about 150 meters away.Read more

    Jungle Day 2, Morning

    December 15, 2016 in Malaysia ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Away on another boat ride by 6am which gave us a lovely sunrise. Thankfully the rain had stopped just before and gave way to slightly cooler temperatures. We saw a gold crested eagle, more monkeys and hornbills before seeeing the second of the two animals we really wanted to see- an orangutan in the wild! And what a view we had, he was right in front of us, up a tree, at the waters edge. After watching him eat his breakfast of leaves he climbed down before appearing again up a fruit tree this time but alot more hidden. We realise we were very lucky to have seen him so clearly. After breakfast we went on a walk through the jungle which we cut short as we heard an elephant nearby. This was after seeing a fully grown dear about the size of a cat.Read more

    Jungle Night Walk, Day 1

    December 14, 2016 in Malaysia ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    The after dinner night walk was a adventurous experience - pitch black, thick mud and dense jungle (oh, and some potentially dangerous creatures!). Once the safety briefing was done, disclaimer forms signed, high-vis vests on and wellies hired we were off but didnt have to go far before we saw a baby, deadly green tree frog followed by the most unusual looking centipede we've ever seen. The water spider could move fast when it wanted to and thankfully so did the tortoise so we narrowly missed treading on it as it was well hiden in the muddy path. The star of the show definitely had to be the rainbow coloured kingfisher sleeping with its beak hidden under its wing, so close it was within touching distance. So many moths and butterflies kept flying at us, attracted by our torch light.Read more

    December 16, 2018 in Malaysia ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    This was my first time couchsurfing! I was kind of scared but I had no reason to be, the host and his friends were very nice. They showed me some local cool spots, including some spots you normally wouldn't see. They took me to see the sunset at a spot where locals fish, after that they took me to a night market. The next morning we went trekking in a national park nearby, which let to a really nice waterfall.

    During my stay in Borneo I mostly ate rice with something, chicken fried rice, or fried noodles. There wasn't that much variation here.
