Planning Your Trip

Gear Review: Garmin eTrex 20

The Garmin eTrex is a portable GPS that fits in the palm of your hand. Not only is it small in size, the Garmin eTrex is also lightweight, works effectively and good value for money. On top of that, it’s rugged and waterproof body means you don’t have to worry if you accidentally dropped it or use it in the rain. Having used the Garmin eTrex 20 for 4 trips so far, let me share my experience with you. When I travel, I rely on public transport and my pair of legs a lot, mainly because I don’t own a driving licence and I don’t intend to get one. For buses and taxis, the Garmin eTrex is very useful because firstly, I want to be sure that I am heading in the right direction and secondly, I want to know if the taxi driver is not ripping me off by.

My next adventure, climbing to the top of Mount Kinabalu

Just shortly after my 1-week adventure in Cambodia, the travel bug strikes again. I didn’t have much annual leave days left for the year so I thought I’ll do a weekend getaway (maybe take the day off on Monday) instead. I didn’t think it was possible but after researching on the Internet, you can actually climb Mount Kinabalu over a weekend!.

Equipment check for my first bicycle tour

As my trip looms nearer, I thought I would share my packing list for my first ever bicycle tour. If you were preparing for a similar trip, you would be glad to know that some airlines do give extra weight allowance if you are bringing along a sports equipment. In my case, a bicycle would get me an extra 10 kg weight allowance for check-in luggage with Qatar Airways. Due to the fact that I am flying to Frankfurt and returning from Munich, I needed to ensure that everything I pack will go on the bicycle. That means using a foldable duffel bag instead luggage cases so that the duffel bag folds and pack into the pannier easily..
