F YOU, Melaka

I have finally left Tioman. It took me some time to detach myself from the place. I am not heading to Kuala Lumpur directly, but will try to get to Melaka.

I arrived in Abu Dhabi. It is hot, no: scorging and I would not exactly call the place inviting. From the airport I made it to the city center and it is basically a giant mall. I’m open to everything? Uhhm, maybe not. Trying to get local food? Not a chance, so I settle for some chili shrimp rice dish at a KFC, which is expensive enough. All around is high rise buildings, fast food chains and sky high prices. But maybe I just need to open myself up even more?

Twitter – This Weeks Follows

Thise week, my twitter activity has been dominated by travel journalists and other travelers.
Through @snordq I learned about @MatadorNetwork, an independent travel magazine.
@Stuenperu is a guy in Lima, Peru who has some nice photos on his Twittersite and followed me this week, so I decided to take a peek at him. the same goes for @EverywhereTrip, the self-proclaimed one-man National Geographic.
@AdventureLiving and @tfthostels on the other hand are rather professionally maintained profiles that provide useful hints, tips and links on travel.
