"Borneo? Where's that?"
This seemed to be the common response when we told people where we'd be spending the long weekend. Borneo is the third largest island in the world (also the third highest) and is made up of parts of Indonesia and Malaysia, as well as Brunei. We stayed in the town of Kota Kinabalu, or KK, in the Malaysian state of Sabah.
Our weekend was relaxing and we really enjoyed KK. Hiking at the base of Mt. Kinabalu, a game of Scrabble overlooking Likas Bay, shopping at the markets in town, seeing the world's largest flower in bloom and attempting to beat the house at the hotel's buffet were some of the highlights of our trip. More posts to come later this week.
