One month has passed and all is well if you do not take into account that our hearts where broken when Jess left us yesterday to go back to school in Sweden, and that we are missing all that we love. During this month in Asia we have learned that time is only relevant to the organiser, that dishes ordered at a restaurant is never or ever the same as the picture on the menu. We have found out that it is possible to live in this world without a mobile phone, and that internet is the common communication plattform even on the smallest island tucked away in deepest Laos. We have seen rain pouring down even though the sun shines, children begging for money but living in a house with satellite-TV. We have tasted the most delicious meals and been grossed out by others such as snake head soup.
One of the constant thoughts we have centers around the big question of what we will do with our lifes when we get a cold shower and wake up from this one. As time passes we hope that the light in the tunnel emerges and guides us into a new world where at least there will be no bloody Powerpoint among the tasks.
Tomorrow is another day of travelling as we are heading for Malaysia and Borneo. We will fly to Hat Yai in the south of Thailand and from there travel by train to the Malaysian border. After the border we will travel by bus to the ferry and finish on the Perenthian islands. Perenthian islands is our starting point from where we will travel around Malaysia and then to Borneo. The islands are very beautiful, scerene and laid-back. As there are no ATMs on the islands we have to go to the ATM before we take the ferry and hope that we take enough cash with us. After we settled in and found an internet cafe we will post some pictures.
To all our hungarian friends – we miss you and hope that your holidays in Balaton exceeded expectations. kisses.
Here are some friends we have made during our month:
