I've just returned from a month of adventure and volunteering in the heart of Sabah, Borneo, in Malaysia. SUCH an amazing time I can't even begin to describe, but I'll have a go at summarising the trip with some photos (...ok well quite a few photos, but I did well reducing them to this considering theres literally hundreds and hundreds!!!). I used a combination of my dSLR and only one lens (gasp horror) and a small Pentax Optio A10 I bought in London Heathrow when leaving, which I managed to sit on and smash less than a week later... so it wasnt much use!! <<<<I'd like to apologise/swear at photobox for once more resizing all my photos, some huge some tiny.... sorry guys.>>>> Upon arrival in Borneo we spent a week a Jungle Camp, training and swimming... typical adventure stuff. A day long jungle trek led us deep into the jungle where we put up our own hammocks and got a good nights kip! I incidentally set my slr bag down at the top of a hill and watched it tumble about half a mile into a tree.... oops... but it survived!! 1. Jungle Camp 2. Fun in the river A week later we left in our groups to our project sites. My group was to complete half of a school library build in approx 3 weeks. We stayed on the school grounds and spent loooads of time with the locals and gorgeous children. 3. Overwhelming welcome 4. They got used to us being around after about 15 minutes...!! 5. I'm sure I'm in there somewhere... 6. Kids at break time 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. I met some great new people/made a lot of friends... 16. 17. Me with one of our leaders. 18. 19. And we built more than our fair share of library! Saw some beautiful places and cute stray dog/huge butterflies and dragonflies hehe!! 20. 21. Beautiful river running through the jungle 22. Skinny stray 23. 24. 25. Butterfly - each wing was the size of a hand Apologies for so many photos, they're not necessarily the better ones at all, but I feel they best describe my experience which I'm still buzzing from! Thanks for looking!!
