Kota Kinabalu Borneo

Apologies to anyone who has been trying to email me the past week and received no response. I have been travelling the jungles of Borneo and had a problem with my email auto responder.

I will be back in Margaret River on Sunday 19th July 2009 and all Margaret River Discovery Tours will be operating from Monday 20th July 2009.

Borneo has been an amazing experience. We have seen wild elephants at a distance of 2 metres, Orang Utans, turtle hatchlings and climbed the 4000m Kota Kinabalu.

With regard the latter, I learned the hard way that daily walks on Margaret River’s Cape track is not considered near enough preparation for such a climb. And the travel agent advice of three months of training should probably be heeded. Ouch. Great experience despite the 2am start, blood noses, burst eye vessels, vomitting, cramps and muscle crippling after affects!
