After a few days in Singapore guess where I ended up - yup back in Malaysia! A country I travelled through for 2,5 months, I just somehow fell in love with it. The food, soooo delicious and extremely easy for vegetarians; the culture, which is such a big mix of so many religions and traditions that even the western travellers feel welcome and integrated; and the people, who are some of the friendliest and kindest people I have met, always there to help you out if you need it (and randomly spend you food or tea without even talking to them). It is a country I feel welcomed in, comfortable and safe (this is especially important for us solo female travellers!

My Temporary Home and House on Langkawi! I absolutely love it here!
After travelling for over a full year now (how time has flown by - I feel like I just started this trip!), I was starting to feel like I just wanted to stay in one place for a while, maybe find a volunteering project or work in exchange for food and accommodation, and not move around too much for a while. The three month Visa you obtain when entering Malaysia is a plus point, making it an easy country to stay in for a while. And since I loved it so much the first time - why not?!
I came to Langkawi a few weeks back now and am starting to settle in. I found a great place to stay at for a cheap price (all of you on a budget but looking for something clean, close to the beach in Pantai Cenang, and off the main road, Rainbow Lodge is a Guesthouse you MUST check out!), a volunteering project to take part in, a lot of time to work on my website and blogging (which is why I have expanded to this new webpage), and OF COURSE to explore the island.
Anyone of you fabulous readers around Langkawi within the next month or two - I will be here and would love to meet up with you! I always enjoy meeting new people, sharing the knowledge and information I have about the best things to see and do while here on Langkawi, and I can even help you out to find the right tours to book (there are so many companies and different tour guides here, all lining up to get those notes, it is hard to know which one is the best value for money). Meeting up for a drink in one of my favourite bars, a chat over the best Teh Panas, or just hanging out on one of the nicer beaches and have a friendly face to talk to, just get in touch with me through Facebook, email, or call me on my local number once you get here! Can't wait to meet you all!
