Helen's Travels Summer 2005 travel blog

Hello people!

We are officially in paradise. We've been in the Perhentian Islands for few days now but is hard to get on internet. They are 2 small islands off the east cost of Malaysia and they are amazing. We're staying on the smaller island in Long Beach and literally all that is here is a beach. It took about 45 mins by small boat to reach here and there is nothing here except a few guest houses (in the form of huts) a few bars and 2 shops (there is no road or town, just this beach). We're staying in a little hut literally on the beach for about 2.50 per night. One problem about this island though is that there is no atms or anything so once your money runs out you are in trouble. Have spent the days lazing around on the beach (white sand, crystal water and huindreds of tropical fish) as theres nothing else to do...fab, and in the evenings one of the bars puts on a big party every other night with a big bonfire outside. There isn't many people here so is has a real community feel, even though we've only been here a few days we already know everyone. Have met loads of really cool people here. Still with Harry...hehe, he's staying in the hut next to ours so have spent most of our time with him. Helen (my housemate not me, just in case anybody thinks i'm strange)...I think I have met YOUR ideal man....will explain when I have more time but lets just say a rich Ben Fogle lookalike. Make sure you leave me lots of messages on this site because have realised I get to download and keep it afterwards which is pretty cool so be nice to see everyones messages. Hope everyone is well, love you all lots


Pickle - afraid I'm not back until the night of the 4th, will give you a call as soon as I get back and hopefully be able to catch you before you go on hols and to uni - sounds like Oz was amazing, can't wait to go there.
