We spent this week in Kota Kinabalu, Borneo, quite content, doing practically nothing. After a couple of weeks of budget living (single beds, shared bathrooms and cold water) we couldn’t wait for a hot shower, and the prospect of whiling away the hours with a good book and a hot bath was something I’d been looking forward to for months. Those of you that have traveled in Asia understand how rare it can be to find a bathtub, and we were quite intent on making the most of it.
Our grand plan of taking the last few weeks off, kind of backfired on us, and we both ended up putting in a few days of work. I also spent a big chunk of time going through all the pictures from our 5 days of diving in Sipadan & Mabul, and Mike has been busy editing together a video with some of the footage we got from one of the guys we dove with our last day in Sipadan.
In-between working and wasting away in the bathtub, we enjoyed several beers along the waterfront, and had a couple of really good meals. KK is definitely the place to get some fantastic seafood. There are several good restaurants, and the night market has some really great BBQ stalls.
All-in-all it’s been a pretty chilled out week, but exactly what we needed.
