Random snack tasting in Sandakan

I would be lying if I said I've been inspired to write lately. I'm currently 5 blogs behind on my Beer Advent Calendar. I didn't even drink the beers yet.

We landed in Sandakan around 9:30am so we hopped in a taxi and went straight to our hotel a couple kilometers from the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Center.  We are excited to be back as we had a really shitty camera last time we were here because our first camera filled up with water while scuba … Continue reading Sepilok 2.0 – Borneo – Malaysia – April 2015
