Still in Malaysia and loving it!




So, I had a minute this morning and I thought I would write on our blog and update anyone who reads it on what an amazing vacation we are having! We are so lucky to be able to do this and it is so fun that my aunt and uncle live here so that we just get to enjoy it and didn't have to do all the work of planning everything we do. We went to Cambodia last weekend to visit Ankgor Wat. It was the most amazing, breath taking place I have ever been! I'll try to get my dad to help me post some pics from his camera so you can get a taste of what I am talking about. It was built back in the 12th century and never lost to the Cambodians but the western world didn't know about it until the 1800s when a British guy discovered it. Pictures do not even do it justice. The temples were massive and the carvings are so detailed. Plus, the place we stayed was the nicest hotel Kurtis and I have ever and probably will ever stay at in our lives! The Cambodian people are so nice and friendly and the kids are so cute I can see why Angelina Jolie picked one up when she was filming Tomb Raider!

We have had so much fun in Kuala Lumpur too. Yesterday we went on a canopy tour over the jungle and went to see Batu caves. Batu Caves are the worlds 2nd most visited site next to Mecca so that was pretty cool. The caves themselves were amazing and then the Hindus have built temple inside of them. Today I think we are doing a pool day and later on heading out to see the fireflys on a canoe down the river. Pretty exotic stuff! My only concern is that I might die of mosquito bites! I have so many it is quite ridiculous, I woke up this morning with ten fresh bites, 3 of which are on my face! I seem to be the one they like the most because no one else seems to have nearly as many as I do. But, if the bites are what I have to live with to have this experience then I think I will survive! Well, thats it for now. We only have a couple more days so we will enjoy every second of it before it is back to real life.
