Our trip to Borneo earlier this year was a bit of test for Emmie and me. In preparation for our year in Asia, I wanted to see if we could manage a different style of accommodation to what we’ve become used to over the past five years, so we ventured out from resortland and dipped our toes into the world of budget accommodation.
We're in Borneo on a budget. It's not too difficult but I am missing basics like room service and a hotel pool. However, I've found an awesome solution - use someone elses hotel pool, for a fraction of the cost of staying at the hotel.
I'm not really sure what happened...one minute I was looking at possible destinations for the July school holidays and then all of a sudden I'd booked flights to Kota Kinabalu and was planning two weeks in Borneo in early June.
I am on that big fluffy cloud nine after my trip with Emmie to Borneo. It was a trial for our big trip overseas next year and after this adventure I really feel like I can do it! We can be a travelling team!
