Goodbye Malaysia – Hello Indonesia Part II

Arrival in Tanjung Balai; Getting lost on the way; Beautiful Lake Toba in Northern Sumatra Early morning we left Malacca heading direction Port Klang. When we arrived Martin with his Honda CB400 was already at the meeting point and shortly after us Nick and Kanchan arrived on their BMW GS 1200 Adv and as well our agent showed up. Still we all were not sure if the ferry will go and if everything will work out… and we were all really nervous ;-) Having some breakfast we were discussing the upcoming procedure and the papers which we would need. Nick and Kanchan did not have the Visa yet so unfortunately they had to stay in KL. Now only Martin and we were left… and we drove to the port. Sascha and Martin left with our agent to get the paper at the customs done while Kerstin was waiting with the Read More …

Goodbye Malaysia – Hello Indonesia

These will be definitely a longer reading as we have experienced a lot within the last 2 weeks. Therefor we divided it into two parts. Ee hope you enjoy sharing our adventures and the pictures we kept for you! Goodbye Malaysia: Port Klang, Kuala Lipis, East Cost, Chini Lake, Malacca… working out our ferry to Indonesia When we arrived early morning at Port Klang we had difficulties to find the meeting point with the agent and we turned up late. Finally we met but he was telling us the Ferry just left! Bad luck? Destiny? Anyhow we took it as it was! At least we met the agent personally and we could talk about the details for the ferry which is supposed to go one week later then. And we had the great opportunity to explore a little bit more of Malaysia… For us was clear we want to go Read More …

Welcome to Malaysia …

… Historical Georgetown-Penang; Gunung Stong; Cameron Highland… Crossing the border was a quite easy job. Thailand said “good bye” to us with a heavy rain shower at the borderline and the paperwork in Malaysia was done quickly under a sunny sky – except we had to go back to the ATM at the duty free shop to get Ringgit for the motorbike insurance… and then: Welcome to Malaysia! Our first destination was Penang. It was not that easy to find a proper accommodation. The places where we could park our motorbike safely were rare and hart to find within all this small lanes. And to be honest we were a bit surprised about the standard which was offered for prizes which seemed high to us in comparison to all the other countries in SEA where we had been so far… In the end we found a nice clean place where Read More …

Back on the road again!

We really enjoyed the time spending in our “temporary home” on Phuket meeting old and new friends… Kisses and hugs to ALL of you!!! But finally the time came we had to say good bye and to continue our journey. At one junction on Phuket we stopped beside a car; the guys inside were smiling at us and passing a little fish snack towards us through the window: Now we were sure doing right –back on road again!!! Due to Kerstin`s ear inflammation which is much better already we had to skip the planned diving course on Ko Tao. No rush is needed so we decided to make a loop over the north mountain area. We chose little streets and just enjoyed the landscapes while passing jungle valleys and small non touristic villages. When a thunderstorm came close we started to look for a place for the night and get Read More …
