Prepping for my Borneo Expedition!
Written Sunday July 21, 2019. 1:48am Kota Kinabalu, Sabah Malaysia.
I have been in Malaysia for eight days now, now currently in the city of Kota Kinabalu in Sabah, Malaysia. Sabah is the northern state of Malaysian Borneo a giant jungle Island in Southeast Asia. Prior to me arriving in Borneo, I was in the Peninsular Malaysia for the first seven days before landing in Borneo only one day ago.
Before I get into details of me being in Borneo I will brief you on the past seven days in Peninsular Malaysia.
I arrived in Malaysia from Thailand, taking a buses starting in Bangkok, Thailand. During my time here in Malaysia I have been exploring the jungles and cities from Johor Baru to the capital city Kuala Lumpur. It’s quite a challenge to put together and implement expeditions into new countries because its takes a lot of learning, finding leads , adapting to new languages, food, and cultures, all while being successful in your endeavors and trying to keep the ship moving financially.
I often get the question why am I doing this. The reason for this is because I am currently working on locations scouts for a film which I have been writing for some years now, along with tracking down and photographing a group of plants which will correlate with movie i’m working on.
I will get into details about that soon enough….but that will take some backtracking to explain.
