Cutting across the spine of Malaysia’s peninsular was fraught with mixed emotions. Some stunning countryside, wildlife and jungle was interspersed with frustrating mechanical problems with our rear wheel that eventually saw us grind to a halt upon reaching the East coast. Whilst waiting for parts to be sent from Europe we were rescued by a wonderful, welcoming family, given insights into local rural life and treated us to some typically incredible Malay hospitality.
