    Extended stay in Gemas

    April 10, 2018 in Malaysia ⋅

    If you read the earlier post about the great experience we were having getting on the train in JB Sentral, the Malaysian countryside, etc, you may have got the impression that the trip was going really well. And it was, until ten minutes out of Gemas, two hours from KL. Apparently its hot here in Malaysia. And the diesel engine that was towing us along the rickety tracks to KL gets hot too. So hot in fact that it overheated and stopped dead “in its tracks” one stop before our destination. Literally, in the jungle, near the highway, 33 degrees.
    So we sat there, wondering what could possibly be going on, because they don’t tell you. Three and half hours later, two buses show up over on the road. We’re getting a bus to KL, direct. But we will miss the fast train, which was part of the mission on this trip. Stymied again with fast trains. Thanks to the nice people on the train and bus we were able to let the people know where we were staying about the delay.

    Singapore to Malaysia, on foot?

    April 9, 2018 in Malaysia ⋅

    After considerable deliberation, investigation and discussion we decided that we would take the jungle line (electric and diesel train) from Johor Bahru, Malaysia to Kuala Lumpur. Johor Bahru is across the river into Malaysia from Singapore. Our online investigation into the finer detail of this leg was confusing at best. So we took a chance and booked the train tickets and figured we would “wing it” once we got out of the country.
    A S$25 cab ride to the Woodlands checkpoint (border crossing) and there we were, on foot, 830am, backpacks loaded, and already 29 degrees.
    Customs was a breeze at that hour on a Monday morning. With some help from local law enforcement we had directions to JB Sentral (our departure point). “It’s just across the river”. Great, we’ll walk. It was only when we got to the other side that the girls fitbit’s told us we walked 4km. I don’t think any of us are sure that what we did by walking across the border on foot, in the sweltering heat with roaring traffic literally inches from you was the best decision we have made as a group. But its early in the trip. And anyway it was fun.
    We had no hold ups at immigration on the Malaysia side and off we went to catch our train.

    Johor Bahru

    December 30, 2018 in Malaysia ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    Von Melaka nach Johor Bahru mit dem Bus. :-)
    Grade an solchen Durchreisetagen passiert als nicht allzu viel, aber die Grabfahrer usw. machen die Tage manchmal auch zu echten Abenteuer. Heute waren es unter anderem ein paar aus dem indischen Restaurant die mit uns abends auf dich Suche nach Eiscreme gegangen sind.... Erfolglos😂😂😂Read more

    Ronny, der Fels in der Brandung

    February 22, 2018 in Malaysia ⋅

    Am Pool und im Meer war echt wieder was los … Die Action-Cam 📹 mal richtig in Action 🎬 Das Meer war heute sozusagen echt umwerfend 🙃 Hinterher war gefühlt mehr Sand in der Hose als am Strand. Außerdem ist Caro von einem Piepmatz 🐦 angesch… 💩 worden, das soll ja Glück 🍀 bringen. Im ersten Augenblick konnte sie ihrer Freude darüber nicht so recht Ausdruck verleihen 😂Read more

    Singapur in Sichtweite

    February 20, 2018 in Malaysia ⋅

    Fast wären wir heute schon in Singapur 🇸🇬 gelandet. Zumindest standen wir schon in der Schlange für den Bus. Am Busbahnhof in Johor Bahru wusste nämlich keiner so genau, wie man mit dem Linienbus in die City kommt 🤦‍♂️🤷‍♀️ – ging dann natürlich aber doch wieder irgendwie. Zehn Minuten vom Hotel entfernt, schon wieder fast in Singapur. Die Hochhäuser hinter uns (s. Foto 📷) stehen nämlich genau da und sind nur 1200 Meter Luftlinie entfernt. Das chinesische Neujahr ist irgendwie immer noch Programm, auch in unserer Hotellobby.Read more

    Lego Land Malaysia!!!!!

    April 22, 2015 in Malaysia ⋅

    Finally the day is here! Arriving here was so exciting, the hotel looks like it's made of Lego and you can see it from a long way away. Lots of things in the hotel are made of Lego and there is so much to play with. All the different lifts are fun too, I like the disco one! Ruby likes the princess one. Our room has a pirate theme and I'm in the top bunk! There was a treasure hunt in our room, the quiz answers made a code to open the monkey treasure chest! We went in the pool on the roof and to the restaurant- there are lots of Lego statues. I think mum will need to buy a new suitcase to bring home all the great things!Read more

    We are finally really here!!

    August 20, 2018 in Malaysia ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    It was a long wait at the Singapore checkpoint but we have forgotten all that now we are at Legoland. It's so much fun! We remembered lots and are rediscovering things too. We had lunch at the nearby mall and had great times building with giant Lego, then we did a family scavenger hunt where we solved clues and took photos of ourselves with the the number answers. Soon it was time for dinner and a cool ninja class. A late bedtime should mean we sleep well ...Read more
