The Wall

By S Way back before we started on this trip, Danielle and I considered ourselves runners. We participated in races and everything. Within the running community there is a common phrase – ‘hitting the wall’. Typically, this phrase is used to describe the ‘oh sh*t’ feeling you experience when the ‘I can’t do this anymore’ […]

Malaysia | That’s a wrap

By S I’m going to get this out of the way quickly – I AM SO GLAD WE WENT TO MALAYSIA. Remember when we first announced our trip and we mentioned we were *thinking* about going to Malaysia but weren’t really sure? Yeah, me too. (If you actually didn’t remember and just pretended to so you […]

Malaysia | Sabah

By S Sabah is an example of reality exceeding expectation. Prior to arriving, I was a little hesitant. Kuching was great. Mulu was even better. We were due for a letdown eventually, right? Plus, due to the fact that we were flying in and out, we were committed to 5 days. Five days? In a […]

Malaysia | Mulu National Park

By D and S Mulu is freaking awesome. Like in Kuching, we felt that there was so much more we could have done given more time (and more money, it really isn’t cheap). But, those are the limits of traveling the world with a set amount of time and a set amount of money. Some […]

Malaysia | Kuching

By S Kuching was the first stop in the Malaysian Borneo portion of our trip. Spoiler alert – the two weeks we spent in Malaysian Borneo are solid contenders for the ‘greatest vacation I’ve ever had’. Sound like hyperbole? Stay tuned. But let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves. We are talking about Kuching […]

Singapore | Singapore

By D We weren’t sure what to expect going in to Singapore. On one hand, we had heard how it was just like a western city full of skyscrapers and fancy restaurants. On the other hand, we were still in southeast Asia.. it had to have some influences from its surroundings, right? Overall, we are […]

Begin Radio (Internet) Silence in 3…2…1…

If you have been keeping track of the map (see: the travel tab) you are well aware that our blog updates are running around two weeks behind our current location. That number is about to get much larger. We begin a 20 day Himalayan trek tomorrow and, as such, will not be posting much of […]

Malaysia | Melaka (Malacca)

By S We made a quick stop in Melaka on our way through Peninsular Malaysia. Melaka is one of the three former large British ports – George Town, Melaka, and Singapore. According to the internet (and signs around town) it used to be the most important of the three due to its strategic location (it is […]

And the winner is….

In honor of Super Tuesday, I figured this would be a good time to tally up the votes of our own historic poll. If you remember back in our Thailand wrap-up post, we created a poll to decide who (me or Danielle) looks better in elephant pants. Well, the people have spoken and the people would rather […]
