I arrived back in Kota Kinabalu yesterday for the last night of our Intrepid Advenuture. It really has been a whirlwind over the last few weeks with every day packed with loads to do. All of the activities have been great but what has made it really good has been the other people on the tour and our fearless leader Awang. Everyone has got properly stuck in and it seems to have gone like clockwork, from the sun arriving on que at the top of the mountain to the loved up couple of Orangutans holding hands shuffling past us on our night walk.
I would defo recommend Borneo to anyone who wants something a bit different and this tour has been a great way to see it all hassle free. For our grand finale we had a gorgeous meal overlooking the sea and a few cheeky tiger beers. No prizes for guessing who was one of the last ones up and listening to her ipod at 1.30 am on the balcony, some things never change eh!?
So today is a bit of a chilled day for me, I have had a few new items on my "list' such as....collect mums coat from the airport after leaving it on the plan yesterday, buy factor 50 suncream and upload some photos but mostly I will be relaxing by the pool and trying to remember some of the skills and theory of scuba diving!
Most of the people from the tour have now either gone home or carried on travelling but Bec and Olly from Birmingham are still here which is great because they were also the last ones up with me last night :) But we wont be repeating it tonight because my pick up for the airport is at 4.15 am tomorrow....boo
Next stop is the Mabul resort with Borneo Divers for 3 nights where I will be diving twice a day at Sipadan, one of the top 10 dive sites in the world!! Very excited/sh*tting myself as it sounds like there are lots of sharks and othe big sea creatures - but I am trusting my instincts and going for it!!
Will try and put some more piccies up when I next get to a computer, wish me luck!
