It has already been a week since I traveled in Brunei and Borneo (Kota Kinabalu and Kuala Penyu) but aside from my Instagram posts, I haven't written anything yet about the trip yet, the trip I have been saying was my greatest adventure yet. Heck, I still have my Maynila Field Trip Series in draft status (already written half) so I don't know if I can find enough focus to sit down and actually write about how awesome and kind the people of Brunei and Malaysia were to me. I do, however, tell stories about it to people who want to listen to me dreamily yap about the experience.

To those who don't really wanna hear about it or to those who just want to have an idea how happy I looked like the entire trip, here's my solo travel's video clip compilation. Enjoy! :)

Solo Travel of 2014: BRUNEI x BORNEO from Jennever Pelaez on Vimeo.

As for the video above, I was supposed to stop the other day and just continue to add captions and finishing touches the next day, but because the clips were all already laid out and it looked good enough, I proceeded with the upload anyway. I don't think I would be able to write the specifics today so I'll just list down my "itinerary" for this trip below for everyone's convenience.

Note: I went to the airport still not having an itinerary, only an idea of places I wanted to see. As cliche as it may sound, I just went where my feet took me.

I tried my best not to make comments on the itinerary yet because I'm saving everything for when I actually write the blog posts. But this is pretty much it. It doesn't look like much now but the journey on how I got from one point to another made the trip more special.
