Our trip to Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia. Hiked up the side of a Mt Kinabalu (4km tall) over 20 hours over two days (left for the summit at 2am on the 2nd day). Picture a steep rocky staircase that just keeps going and going for 8.5 km. We were walking funny for the next two weeks. Oh and it was mostly through a rain forest so it was pouring rain for most of the time.
Also, saw great marine life on our dives and had lunch on an island (saw Nemo and Dad). Great street food at the night market across from our hotel (le Meridien) in downtown Kota Kinabalu. Food bloggers (amazing to find them even in KK) led us to the best local hainanese chicken rice and seafood.
