Tues 1 July: We’re on our way!

After lots of difficult emotional goodbyes and the party to beat all parties, left Edinburgh yesterday morning. Slight hiccup at airport due to totally unexpected and exorbitant cost of excess baggage, which resulted in 3 of our 6 bags going back to my mum’s in a taxi – problem to be solved later!

Flights uneventful, the usual misery of a Heathrow departure lounge – so busy, such crap food, travellers packed in like sardines. Arrived in Kuala Lumpur early this morning and had unexpected bonus of not only being able to check in to our hotel early, but also getting a complimentary upgrade to the business floor – 25th floor, stunning views across to the Petronas Towers.

K and I pretty much collapsed after bath/shower, slept till 2ish, then went out for lunch. Hot prawn curry for me, could feel chilli working immediate miracles on my slightly congested digestive system! Starting to feel a bit more like myself again after stresses, strains and emotional rollercoaster of past few days.
