Visiting Kuala Lumpur in 1 day!

Visiting Kuala Lumpur in 1 day!

While Malacca was our original destination in Malaysia, we did want to spend some time exploring Kuala Lumpur as well.  We took the bus from Malacca to Kuala Lumpur the day before our flight left.  Due to the bus ride we got into KL around 1 pm and were starving. Thankfully right across from Le Boutique Apple Hotel was a Johnny Rockets, we checked in and went over to get a burger.  After we ate I was talking with a…

Things to do in Malacca Malaysia

Things to do in Malacca Malaysia

Malacca  (Melaka) Malaysia was a fun city to visit.  What I didn’t realize was that when we flew into Kuala Lumpar was that we had to take a bus and it was a 2-hour ride south to Malacca.  We bought bus tickets in the Airport on the ground 2nd floor and waited for the next bus. Once we arrived at Malacca the bus dropped us at the Central Bus station,  I tried to find a charter bus to our hotel,…

Visiting Cambodia- 2 Days in Siem Reap

  Visiting Cambodia Cambodia was an amazing experience, our original destination was Kuala Lumpur but we extended the trip to spend a couple of days in Cambodia- a great decision.  The night before our trip, of course, I check the weather and see that in May it is 100 degrees this is not at all what I was expecting.  This caused us to re-evaluate our packing. Visa Requirements VISA: Everyone needs to purchase a VISA when entering Cambodia.  When we…

Beginning my blogging journey

Beginning my blogging journey

How and why did I start this adventure….here it is. I have been an avid Pinterest user since 2015.  In 2013 my daughter was obsessed with it and when we would travel she would say…”mom you have to check it out on Pinterest first”.  Did I listen to her…no…do I wish I had listened to her….yes….
