Following a few miserable days in KL, we packed our bags and headed for the northern Malaysian state of Penang. And life has been much better since setting down our packs in this place. We’re staying in a functional, but tired guesthouse in George Town, the capital. From our room’s balcony, we have a great view of the KOMTAR building, and from our rooftop, almost a complete 360 degree view of the city.
We have undertaken some spectacularly long walks in the heat and humidity, ones that have rendered wearing thongs impossible because of the blisters between my toes. But instead of focusing on the pain, I choose to see them as badges of honour.
And there have been some beautiful sunsets in Penang… it’s something I’ve really appreciated.
I’m really glad we came up here.
Next stop, Thailand. Closer to my original goal of making it to The Island…
