Our first stop. We’re only planning on traveling in West Malaysia. East Asia is accessible only by plane, and we are trying to avoid flying (and for some reason the two halves of the countries do not communicate often by boat). This is partially to alleviate Mike’s anxieties and our discomfort, partially for financial reasons (we have more time than money), but mostly due to philosophical distaste. The slower the travel, supposedly the more mindful. Therefore: Plane < Bus < Walking.
