Sabah, Malaysia

This post might be my personal favourite one because I’m very proud of all the photos in. So in these last three weeks I’ve been diving, exploring jungles and watching Netflix while being sick. My last week was completely ruined because I wasn’t able to do any of the things that I had planned to do but I knew that my health comes first and I need to be able to take the long flight back home. So I just stayed in my hostel room for few days and went through some seasons of different series.

But other than that I truly enjoyed Sabah. I did my OW & AOW in Mabul (Link of the diving company in the end of the post). Doing my diving license was one of the biggest things I’ve done on my travels because it had been on my mind for such a long time. In Sabah I saw sharks, turtles, an eagle ray, orangutans, proboscis monkeys and crocodiles. I found cheap rotti and had it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I made new friends and noticed that Malaysian people are one of the nicest people I had met on my travels.

I’m going to say this again but yeah, I will definitely come back to this place. At least to dive.

So today is my last day in Asia. End of my travels. I really can’t believe it. I’ve had so many twisted feelings about today and next few days. From sadness to joy and from anxious to excitement. I have been sad because it’s time to say goodbye for travelling for a while now. I’ve been anxious because I really don’t know when I’m going to travel again and also because I’m not sure how everything will go in Finland. But mostly I’ve been happy.

I’m going to have so many new things going on in Finland which I just can’t wait to happen but I’m also excited about all the old things. I can’t wait to hug my best friends, my grandma and my dog again. I can’t wait to drive a car and get my drunk friends back home at 5am. I can’t wait to eat all the food I’ve been missing. Skiing, going to sauna, dancing to Finnish pop songs, complaining to my mum about pointless stuff, watching ice hockey in a bar, driving a snowmobile and talking with old people in the supermarket. I will see my home in a different way than before and I hope that I will enjoy it in a new better way now.
