Another photo from our holidays. A bit of an unusual one, not your typical tourist photo..
We had about 10 hours to spend in Kuala Lumpur on the way home from Vietnam. We had planned to deposit our bags in the appropriate place at the airport, and then head into town. Upon arrival at the airport, we discovered that the bag drop off area was not attended and a sign up saying they wouldn't be accepting bags until after 4pm. Ok, we were stuck in the low cost airport (no interesting shopping or nice places to lounge), with a great pile of luggage for 10 hours. Not ideal. Especially before a very long overnight flight home.
So Geoff and Matt did some reconnaissance and found a hotel nearby that rented rooms in three hour slots. they managed to score the last room available (yay) and we headed on over. The room was tiny, only enough room for a double bed and possible less than 1 metre extra around the bed. So we piled the bags in and found space were we could (hence Meaghan in the shower...). Thankfully they also had a really nice area downstairs with cold drinks. So we took it in turns to have showers and resting on the bed. Bizarrely, it was the most comfortable bed AND the best shower we had come across in three weeks of moving around.
And they had a decent restaurant, so by the time we had to go to the airport, we were well rested, well fed and showered. All a bonus.
I have used this weeks Sketchy Thursday sketch -
Hope you had a great weekend. We looked at more houses (fun and confusing) and went for a lovely picnic to welcome a new family to Geoff's work. All catered. love that!!
And my most lovely friend Jo sent me this to look at -
