Back to Malaysia

I’ve had a very restful and nice pit stop in Bangkok, spending the majority of my time working, interspersed by hitting the gym and the pool and eating good food. I haven’t really gone out at all lately in the evenings… I’m trying a new, healthier lifestyle of trying to incorporate physical activities and sports more into my day, with much less of the party style, for at least a while.

As an example, now when I am looking at which part of town to stay in, when I travel, I am now looking to be closer to the surfing or snowboarding areas than to the nightclub district…

Anyway, I intend to go to Malaysia this weekend… Malaysia is one of my favorite countries in the world. I have been to both sides of Malaysia, in Kota Kinabalu and Kuala Lumpur and really loved it.

This time I will be going to another new area… I will be starting off in the beach resort area of Langkawi, then possibly taking a ferry to Penang and staying there for a day or so, then on to Kuala Lumpur.

I will spend a total of about a week in Malaysia, travelling with Jane… then I will likely begin making my way up to Taiwan, Japan or Korea (haven’t decided which yet) and then will take off to Vancouver and a number of destinations in North America and the caribbean over a month or two.

More updates soon, likely from Langkawi.
