Hi Everyone, well the sisters have been fairly quiet with their travel, each have been doing their own thing. We have been talking about where we should go next but can't decide. So we are looking for suggestions......where do you think we should go?

Tell us where we should go next?

Well today was a very full day. We hired a private taxi which only cost 100 AUD. He drove us around all day and took us everywhere we wanted to go. First stop was the orangutang rehabilitation centre. These beautiful creatures are dying because of Palm tree logging that is happening. Palm trees are being cut down for palm oil and the mothers have nothing to eat, so they die and their babies become orphans ....so very sad. The rehab centre is doing a great job with them.

Second stop was the proboscis monkey. These tunny little creatures were just everywhere . We got very close and personal with theses ones and the silver ones came running down the track ... A special experience!

Next , was the sun bear rehabilitation centre. This was the place that made me cry. The video we watched before the walk was so heartbreaking. Some bears are killed for their gall bladder because it is supposed to have healing properties , others are killed to make Paw soup...tragic an unaaceptable!

The last stop, was the Australian war memorial, moving, tragic and incredibly thought provoking. When you look around at Borneo and see the dense jungle around you, you wonder how anyone survived.

Then Adam( our driver) asked if we wanted to go to his house. He lives in a fishing village with his mother, father, 2 sisters and many children., a fascinating insight into how the locals live

Today the thrill seeker sisters ventured out to the jungles of Borneo to Sapi Island. Jo saved Fran from the wild boat ride with 4 metre ocean swells in the South China Sea and Fran saved Jo from the F@&$ ing wild Boar! ... She held my arm and said Calmly....don't run...just walk! And then of course there was the encounter with the Goanna... that was needing a feed... Thank god for the zoom feature !

One Final Post......Both Fran and Jo would like to thank you all for travelling with us and for sharing our amazing adventure!, it's been a privilege to have you all on board. If there is one thing that we both learned, it's the importance of a holiday, away from your home, work and all the stresses that go with it. Quite often people will just have a week off work, sit at home and watch TV or clean out their cupboards...this is not a holiday. You need to go away from your house and your work and enjoy a change of scenery, a change of pace or a change with the people that you interact with.
Even better if you can share it with someone special.....like your Sister....or your brother, mother, children or a good friend.
As sisters we were able to spend quality time together, that with all life's pressures we would not be able to do.

We would be more than happy to answer any questions you have and provide any tips that will make your next holiday memorable and special!

So everyone.......go and arrange your next holiday!!!
