    Mersing, Malaysia

    June 12, 2017 in Malaysia

    Up at 5.45am to catch the 7.30am ferry from Tioman Island to Mersing, and then a bus from there to Singapore. We should arrive in Singapore at about 4pm, so it looks like it will be a long day ahead. Breakfast was muesli straight from the packet. Ah, hunger! With time to kill before our 12pm bus, we tried some local food at the bus terminal. After initial reluctance, I tried the fish curry. Very spicy and very good. All up cost with drinks, 11 RM (about $4).Read more

    The banality of the travel day

    March 21, 2016 in Malaysia

    One of my favorite maxims is that time - not money, nor oil, nor water - is in fact our most valuable resource. That theory is put to the test on days like today; Rachel and I are on our way back to Singapore from our island getaway on Tioman, but the return trip isn't quite as straightforward as it was on the way out. We awoke in darkness at 5:30 this morning, needing to catch a 6:30 AM ferry back to the mainland. However, due to some incongruity in the bus/ferry schedules, we were presented with the prospect of a nine-hour wait between the ferry arriving and the bus leaving. We've spent the intervening moments alternating between sleeping under the fans in the ferry terminal (no A/C or Internet here), reading and listening to books, eating pre-packaged Nestlé ice cream, and trying to figure out the best way to use bathrooms that have no locking doors and no toilet seats. The idea of a lengthy global honeymoon definitely seems glamorous, but it does push your limits of tolerance for boredom, comfort, and cleanliness now and then. Sometimes, I suppose, there are in fact things more valuable than time. -NAP

    Update: On top of the above, our bus is going to be anywhere from 2-4 hours late, because some of the passengers must have missed the ferry they were supposed to be on and we are waiting for the next ferry to arrive for an indeterminate amount of time. Serenity now, my friends.

    La première journée de route

    January 31 in Malaysia

    Il est 9h30 et on est toastés des deux bords, prêts à aller se coucher. La première journée de route avec Ironman nous rentre dedans, mais on est vraiment contents. Il n'y a aucun doute dans notre tête que ça va faire notre voyage.

    En résumé, aujourd'hui :
    - Nous avons traversé le pays d'ouest en est.
    - Presque deux tiers du trajets se sont fait à travers les plantations d’huile de palme.
    - On a appris à combattre le feu par le feu. Quand il fait trop chaud, il faut rajouter des couches et se couvrir un maximum.
    - On a eu mal aux fesses (va vraiment falloir se bâtir une couche de gras supplémentaire).
    - Un méga groupe de singe a traversé la route devant nous (malheureusement, par le temps qu’on sorte la caméra, la majorité s’était cachée dans le bois).
    - On s’est fait servir les plus gros coconuts ever.
    - Ironman s’est fait refaire une beauté sur la plage en remerciement pour une magnifique première journée!
