Interview on Vagablogging

April 23, 2010

A few weeks ago, I wrote a post called Reflecting: The Cost of Travel, which was noticed by many friends and family, but also by a beat writer for established travel writer Rolf Potts’ site — the author who’s book I cited in the post as a huge inspiration for long term travel. After a […]

In the Dark in Niah Caves

April 22, 2010

In the middle of the cave, we switched off our flashlights to find ourselves in complete darkness, surrounded by the sound of hundreds of swiflets clicking and water slowly dripping from above. The air felt damp, having long ago surrendered to the unique and putrid smell of guano (bat droppings) that burned our noses. We […]

Reflecting: The Cost of Travel

April 11, 2010

When I was very young a big financier once asked me what I would like to do, and I said, “To travel.” “Ah,” he said, “it is very expensive; one must have a lot of money to do that.” He was wrong. For there are two kinds of travelers; the Comfortable Voyager, round whom a […]

Evenings in Sabah’s Capital

April 10, 2010

The night market in Kota Kinabalu was the highlight for me. A leisurely walk along the bay past the central market and through the handicraft market leads to tantalizing smells and variety of eating options. I felt like I was swimming through a sea of bright colors and rich aromas as we made our way […]

Orangutans and Orchids

April 7, 2010

We arrived at the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Center around 9:30am and waited as the wooden observation deck filled up with tourists. Later that morning, the orphaned orangutans who currently call the center home as they are reintroduced to the wild and weened off human contact, would be served a modest meal of milk and bananas.

Party at Uncle Chang’s

April 2, 2010

We spent a Saturday night at Uncle Chang’s, when the quiet little wooden resort hosts a full blown party with a live band, a local kid dancing for endless entertainment, and Uncle Chang himself handing out pints of whiskey and cans of coke like candy. And though I was a little hard on Uncle Chang’s […]

Diving. Sipadan.

March 30, 2010

There were five sea turtles in view when Nate grabbed my fin frantically to show me that there was another just grazing my head, its belly skimming over my floating wisps of hair. The fish were so colorful and plentiful we didn’t know where to look as we descended to 35 meters down a 600-meter […]

Teddy’s Banana Farm

March 25, 2010

We spent the better part of two weeks staying at Sea Dive Resort in Coron Town. The waterfront restaurant of the resort is sort of the “it” place to be in town, and as such we met quite a few people in our time there. One morning we met an American couple: Judith and Teddy. […]

Coron Bay Island Hopping

March 18, 2010

Coron Bay is famous for wreck diving and tourism in this area seems to be thriving because of it. And though the diving was the initial draw, visitors are now flocking here for the top notch island hopping. We’ve spent two days on rented bangkas island hopping, and two days kayaking to the best snorkeling […]

Upstream from Borongan

March 9, 2010

One of the day trips we ventured on while staying in Borongan involved hiring a fishing boat to take us out on the Suribao River to explore a quiet village and a seemingly untouched waterfall. A 15-minute tricycle ride brought us to a small pier where we hired an older man to take us in […]
