Delayed...

This morning we sadly had to leave the Perhentians and catch the Ferry back to the mainland before taking an hour's taxi ride to Kota Baharu to catch a flight to Penang. The reason why we decided to fly was to save time, yet as the flight was delayed by 3 ½ hours it...

A lovely day on the beach

This morning Chris woke up before 7am and was so excited to have everyone with us he was like a little boy!.. Thus it took a great deal of persuasion to stop him from waking the others. Neil however wasn't so lucky as Chris snuck off and started banging on his door dragging him down to the...

The Jungle Railway

All over the internet everyone had raved about 'The Jungle Railway' that you can take from Kota Baharu straight through to Singapore, including many travellers who claimed it was the highlight of their trip to Malaysia, so we were determined not to miss out! So we woke up at...

Wreck Diving

Gestern liessen wir uns vom Inseltaxi ans südliche Ende bringen, wo wir am einsamen Strand über den schönsten Korallengärten schnorcheln konnten. Im Wasser war es nicht ganz so einsam, weil immer mal wieder ein 'Schnorcheltrip Boot' Leute brachte, die auch die herrliche Unterwasserlandschaft...

Badeferien

"Time flies when you're having fun" - so vergehen die Tage hier auf unserer tropischen Insel im Fluge. Tom und ich sind inzwischen "PADI Open Water Divers", Lisa und Corinne immerhin "Scuba Divers". Wegen ihren Erkältungen konnten sie die letzten zwei Kurstage leider nicht mitmachen. Was...

Ein anstrengender Tag

Auch der heutige Tag stand ganz im Zeichen des Tauchkurses. Repetieren der Theorie beim Morgenessen, mehr lernen und Videos, ein Morgentauchgang mit unendlich vielen Uebungen, kurze Mittagspause, noch ein Tauchgang mit mehr Uebungen, dafür am Schluss noch eine tolle Riffbesichtigung (55' bis...

Tauchen!

Einen Haken hat die Sache mit dem Tauchen ja: Nix ist mit Ausschlafen! Lernkontrolle, Morgenessen, dann zur Tauchschule und Ausrüstung anpassen. Wir lernen, mit Jacket, Automaten, Blei und Neopren umzugehen, schauen Lernvideos und besprechen die Theorie und schon ist der Morgen um. Zur...

Airports!

Gestern ultrafrüh aufstehen, um 4:45 am Flughafen - Flugzeug kaputt: Statt um 6:00 soll der Flieger nach Kuala Lumpur erst um 12:00 fliegen! Es ist schwierig, irgendwelche Information zu bekommen. Rein und raus aus der Sicherheitszone. Einige Schalter später haben wir dann auch einen neuen...

Perhentian part 2

I met some really interesting people on the island: - one guy had spent the last 15 months travelling to this point from England overland. The southern route too - which took him through Iran and Pakistan, and along the Afghanistan border. He reckoned Iran was the most friendly place he's...
