After an amazing eight weeks in Thailand, it was time to board another plane and head to Kuala Lumpur. We were supposed to fly to India this weekend but changed our minds after reading some pretty terrifying articles online about the country’s terrorism risk amongst other issues. We decided it was better to be safe than sorry and changed our route, we’ll be spending a few days in Kuala Lumpur before flying to Nepal to start our trek towards Everest Base Camp.

The date of our flight was the day of Chinese New Year and our hostel is in the middle of Chinatown so we were expecting to get involved in the celebrations but unfortunately, we seemed to have missed the whole thing and had to wade through the aftermath of rubbish!
