Malaysia…it’s a less corrupt, less crowded version of Indonesia. Plus the two languages are around 80% the same, so I can get by fairly well. There is a surprising amount of Chinese and Muslim influences in everything from food to architecture. Definitely a fun and friendly country to explore — lots of great spots for nature lovers, as well.

  Thanks to all the adrenaline-pumping adventures, delicious food, pristine beaches, beautiful scenery, exotic wildlife, gorgeous islands and friendly people, Malaysia is one of my favorite countries in the world! (I spend so much time here it is basically my second home) 😎

Sunsets in Sabah, East Malaysia, are some of the best in the world
