The last 4 day has been spent on the remote island of Lankayan. It's a small tropical paradise 15km off the North East coast of Borneo. We traveled by boat for just over two hours of very rough sea to get here, we all looked very green as we finally pulled up beside a welcome party on the jetty. A very pleasant change to the humid and harsh mainland. I have been soaking up the sun or watching the array of sea life swimming past our chalet balcony, whilst my husband dives.

Tomorrow we head back to the mainland to Sepilok Nature Reserve. A sanctuary and home to some of the last Orang-Utans of Northern Borneo.
Jenny - You will have an amazing time. A few essential things for the rain forest. Leech socks (you can buy them there). Long sleeve tops (as many as you can fit in as you are constantly wet and nothing will dry) and strangely baby talc. Something I read in a travel book helps with the constant moisture and keeps you feeling fresher!! My husband even resorted to using it :)
