After spending one whole year as a full-time travelling family (wahoo!!) and having spent 359 days of this in Southeast Asia, we thought we would look back on the good and the bad.
Carrying on from our first six month review post, I thought a blog that includes our costs and budget to date would also be required.
After being in the concrete jungle of KL we all found being in Penang very refreshing to be surrounded by nature, whether it be the ocean in front of us or the forrest and hills behind us.
Our last couple of weeks in Penang were a little quieter as we took in a bit more of this wonderful part of Malaysia…
Weeks 3 and 4 have flown by here in Penang – this region keeps growing on us, it is a wonderful spot….
It’s hard to believe we have already spent just over three weeks in the Penang region, we seem to have slotted into life here very easily. Perhaps it’s that we have already become quite familiar with Malaysia as a country before arriving here from KL. The Penang state encompasses Penang Island (which is where we are) and an area of mainland Malaysia. Georgetown, on the island, is the capital and was designated with World Heritage status by UNESCO on the 7th July 2008.
We weren’t expecting our trip from KL to Penang to be a blog post by itself but here it is, the joys of road travel….
Well, we have now left Kuala Lumpur and are already busy exploring Penang; so we thought it was time to write a review of our time in Kuala Lumpur.
Now that we have said ‘goodbye’ to the big city of KL, here are the highlights of our second 3 weeks there….
When Logan’s sister and brother-in-law visited KL earlier this year, one of the main things we heard about was the amazing Sunday Lunch (with free flow Champagne, wine and beer) at The Ritz-Carlton. Once we had arrived in KL and found that The Ritz was on the same street as our apartment, just 650m up the road, and that my birthday fell on a Sunday this year, it just seemed too good an opportunity to pass up.
