on Tour

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Home sweet home, and some words before I set off to NZ


Christmas, New Year, and altogether just a great time at home!! I was eating Swiss food as cheese, potatoes, fondue, bread, cordonbleu, rösti, etc. like a tourist during the three weeks I spent in Switzerland. I met a lot of friends, went climbing (indoor) and road cycling, and came around here and there. And I did some improvements and replacements on my bike and gear…

On Tuesday 12th of January, I started for my trip the second time. From Zurich I flew back to Kuala Lumpur, where my luggage was waiting for me. It was like arriving at home in a way. The hostel was familiar, so was the culture and the food. And when I stepped into the house, I realized that V and Sara, two girls I had met in December in this hostel, were still there. Yay, like coming home! 🙂 Two other cyclists stayed there as well, Korean Lino and Italian Giacomo. We had a good and relaxed time, thanks guys for the week together.

Most of the time I spent in the hostel or the area around, cleaning all my equipment for entering Australia/New Zealand. And I worked on my blog, sent mails and organized some stuff. One day I went to KLCC (the city center), walked around Chinatown, visited a Hindu temple, strolled around some old buildings and mosques, then went to see the Petronas towers and other skyscrapers and finally had a ride with the monorail back to the hostel. Here are some impressions, that’s my last blogpost in Asia for a while…
