Where In The World Is CJ England???

Inquiring minds want to know... And will continue to question through the month of May...


Hey all,

It is Friday April 30 and by the time you read this Jonathon and I will be visiting one of the oldest rainforests in the world, Taman Negara Park. We are really looking forward to this time away from the hustle and the bustle of the city.

There is no internet available at the small bungalow we will be staying in, so the next time I'll have to check back in won't be until Tuesday or Wednesday.

In the next few days we will be exploring the rainforest, taking a boat ride up a river, fighting off bloodsucking leeches, walking through the forest canopy on a skinny little rope-type walkway and listening to the sounds of the primeval jungle outside our window.

Then we'll head to Thailand on an overnight train to visit one of the oldest and most conservative settlements called Sungai Kolok. Let's just say I won't be wearing my shorts and tank tops here. But then again...neither will Jonathon. LOL But you can get a beer at the pubs. Go figure!!!!

Next is a train ride back during the daylight hours on the famous Jungle Train. Read up about it HERE. You can then share our excitement or our misery. It will be interesting to see if a goat will be my seat mate!

Then we switch to a faster train to head back into Kuala Lumpur. We have a couple days there before we head out on our next part of the trip... Cambodia and Vietnam!!!!

I'll be in touch when I can! Keep us in your prayers and thoughts. Already I'm a missing you!

CJ England
Follow Your Dreams

Wow! Sounds like you will be busy! Be careful and enjoy yourselves. Don't want to hear about American tourist picked up and carried away by a giant mosquito or something else big and scary! lol
