Hey Everyone,

Been a few years since I posted anything on here, but I recently got back from Borneo/South East Asia and thought I'd share a few pics.

Spent a few weeks on the Malaysian side of Borneo and climbed Mount Kinabalu. I also, ventured into the Kinabatangan River area and a few other places in Sabah. The Parks and jungle areas are few and far between as most of land is now palm oil plantations, which is depressing to see.

Anyway, the preserved parts of Borneo were incredible and totally worth visiting if you get a chance.

Pics are right off my phone, water proof case, as most of the areas were way to wet and humid to bring better camera.
