First arrival of my first big trip how exciting, I really had nothing planned apart from airfares. I began to research where I should go, getting confused with the bus service I decided to choose Chinatown which ended up being the right choice. I soon met Warren Hamilton Richie what a extraordinary name and a guy from Australia too. We wondered down the street after arriving in Chinatown, he booked into his dragon inn hostel as I went next door to find Grocers Inn as Dragon was booked out. Just having a few beers and exploring Chinatown, eating where locals are turns out to be cheaper.
During the night a lot of people were on roof top, I introduced myself and we soon found ourselves buying bottles of vodka at the shop downstairs across the road.
I explored KL in the 3 days I spent here. I took a train and went to the twin towers while meeting some English girls. Visited a Mosque for the first time and saw prayers and stayed and had tea with the workers there. Had a free tour of old station Betang after bumping into 10 or so tour guides in training. I saw a formula 1 being set up. Best of all I visited Batu Caves which you have to take a bus to reach.
I did not know at the time but this was only the first of many experiences that was to be had by the miraculous wonders of travelling, which the bug has now spread through my veins and heart.
