I know that I mentioned that I was going to write about our adventures in Borneo, but I am having difficulty in trying to describe the 10 days we spent in that amazing place. During that time I scaled the highest peak in South East Asia - Mount Kinabalu at 4,089m - spent a night at Palu Selingan where we watched a female turtle come ashore to lay her eggs and then onto the Kinabatangan River where we saw Orang Utan’s and Proboscis monkeys in the wild. An experience that I can only compare to “going on safari in Africa”. I wasn’t even disappointed by the fact that we didn’t see any elephant while we were at the Kinabatangan River (they‘re tiny - not quite as tall as me in the pictures that I‘ve seen). Despite the close proximity of Sipidan Island, which is considered one of the world’s top 5 dive sites, we didn’t manage to get there - there was so much else to do and see that we decided to leave it for another trip.
