Leaving Perhentian Island

I woke up to a beautiful sunrise over the beach. The place I found to stay was right on the beach. Hard to believe I got such a view for only $10USD. I only packed 4 outfits so I had to have laundry done. It is also cheap at $1.

Right Where I Belong

Yesterday I left Kansas and set out on the road. Before I left, I hugged my parents and told them I loved them.
