Further to our post below, our intrepid travellers have put up a blow by blow account of the home-bound experience on their blog with really interesting photos of KL, some of which I've yet to experience myself!
At times. It takes a traveller to show the one at home what they're missing...
Some of the highlights were how close the clearance came to, when moving the mobile home into the container....
It was a fun experience for both the travellers & the team at Alien Logistics - despite the heat & the spot of rain, the camaraderie and cooperation with the team at the port made the loading of the home & truck a smooth transition and we're happy to say that at the other end, our partner office in Germany made for a very swift & smooth extraction of the container's innards and it was trundling its way back home in less than half a day!
**** Traveller or Tourist? ****
There are travellers, and there are tourists. I thought there was just a fine line between the 2 until I met a family who showed me the cavern that existed between them.
Though I was hoping to be considered to be more a traveller than a camera-totting, cotton-clothed tourist, I realised that while I was quite happy taking shots of plant life, experiencing top 10 must-sees which were advertised or Tripadvisor-ed and chatting with the locals, maybe sharing a meal with them; I never really saw the country per se.
I have a new respect for people who take the time & effort to travel a country's by-roads and paths less trodden. The sights are nothing less than what warrants a National Geographic documentary award, and the experiences & people you meet along the way are definitely more colourful than your neighbourhood Sunday market.
We had a fun time, preparing Mustafa's home for shipping to their next destination - the weather held up though it rained a bit towards the end, but all went well & the best part? I got to go into the port & take a look around.... just like a tourist!
