    Indiana Jones your not Simone, lol. But alas his fear was of snakes. None the less, a great story. Good tips and nice photos to boot.

    The best thing to be happy on this kind of road trip is to drive! If you can, of course! When you drive, everything is interesting. Nothing is boring! On the other end, to have a local driver (or any other local!) helps a lot for restaurants!

    A very interesting page & great pics, Simone! Great adventure including driving itself. I prefer to see camera fee sign than "NO photography" sign.

    I didn't get time to go to the caves when i was in Sandakan [only got to see the War memorial :-( ] so it was nice to read someone elses account of what they are like :-)

    Very comprehensive, interesting journal of your adventures. Too bad you could not take photos in the cave, but your nature shots are really great.
