That’s ‘Welcome’ in Malay/Indonesian. I’m currently in Tambunan, Sabah, Malaysia. It’s hot. It’s sticky. It’s gorgeous. Thought I’d pop off a quick post of this video I took right before hitting the airport in Seattle to take off on this walkabout…literally. Here’s a quick look at what goes into my rucksack (usually – if I was headed to India this would be a completely different story) before taking off on one of my wild globetrotting experiences around SEAsia:
Not mentioned in the video (in bag or whatever): Leatherman, vitamins, a simple first aid kit, random assortment of power adapters for different countries, pack towel(s), 5 liter dry bag, and last but not least Socks (not really needed…EVER almost – I mess this up every year).
Here’s link’s to a few of the products seen in this video:
Aqualung Favola Mask
(You can get these cheaper on eBay.)
REI Siesta Sheet
(Apparently these aren’t available anymore, but they have similar items.)
Kelty Red Cloud
All that said, once I arrived I already realized I overpacked – AGAIN. Mainly I did not need the socks and that many T-Shirts – it’s just too hot!
Boom boom, it’s hot out, we’re eating Mee Sup Tom Yam Seafood for breakfast and then off to a waterfall!
