Two Days In: Kuala Lumpur

After Singapore it was time to move on to Malaysia.  We spent about two weeks exploring the country with our first city being the capital of Kuala Lumpur.  KL is a bustling modern metropolis that we both instantly liked.  It has the same bright light feel as Singapore, but with a little more of the wild west craziness that most people associate with Southeast Asia.  Here are a few tips for two days in the home of the famed Petronas Towers: Kuala Lumpur.

Mistake Fares : Book Now and Sort It Out Later

I’m writing this from 36,000 feet in the air, sitting in seat 3A on a Qatar Airways flight headed to Doha. Breada and I just wrapped up three weeks in South Africa, a country we’ve wanted to visit for years but has always been a little out of reach.

Two Days In: Singapore

We’re moving pretty fast this trip.  During our last jaunt around Southeast Asia, our time frame didn’t have a solid expiration date.  This gave us the luxury of staying places for more days than most, and allowed us to have a fairly flexible itinerary.  This time, however, we only have three months.  This means our itinerary is pretty air tight, and we’re hopping around every two to three days.  I will admit it’s tiring, but so far it’s been worth it.  Continue reading “Two Days In: Singapore”
