And this is how it all went during our 13 hours flight (from Cairo to Kuala Lumpur with Egyptair…)
And we started it… we took the plane leaving to Kuala Lumpur on the 13Jun14.
It’s the longest trip I’d ever had. we spend nine hours (non-stop) in which I engaged myself with reading newspapers, talking with an Algerian old man sitting beside me, listening to music, watching movies, eating and sleeping 😀
In the plane, I got the feeling that I am travelling to an Sharm El Sheikh :D. I don’t know why, but I felt familiar with almost everyone on the plane. Maybe because almost all of the were Muslims and most women were veiled. Their skin color is also very much like ours… maybe that’s why 🙂
We landed in Bangkok airport and spend our time there wondering about, in the toilet, praying, and taking some photos:
Ehm! I just liked the tatoo 😀 don’t misunderstand me reader 😀
And we took our flight to KL…
The flight was also so normal and there were nothing much to tell about it! However when we landed the fun started 😀 we didn’t have any Malaysian money and we knew beforehand that the exchange rate at the airport is not good. We decided to exchange our dollars at any money exchange office in the city. However we didn’t know that the city is so far from the airport and we have to take a bus to reach there which is for RM10.
We were forced to exchange money at the airport, but we changed only USD50 for both of us till we reach the city! And we took a bus there. Before we took the bus we checked many money exchange offices for the best rate, and they were all the same but we had a change to go around the airport for around one hour and of course we took some photos 😉
One of the strange things I saw there is that Malaysian Muslim girls were half sleeves. OMG! They cover their head but show their elbows. That was so strange and the first girl I saw doing that was the young lady booking the bus ticket for me 🙂 I am sorry I don’t have a pic for that, but you can easily imagine that… right?! 😀
While we were waiting for the bus, we met a girl and another man from Uzbekistan! She was trying to flirt us 😀 Never mind the fact that she was not beautiful , but what about that guy sitting beside you for God’s sake!!!
Now were are on the bus, the trip too us around one hour! The airport is really very far from the city. I didn’t feel very much a stranger. Those people are very much like us!
We got off in a station near our Hostel. The weather was really hot and moist, and we were hungry. We kept looking for a local restaurant to eat at and ended up at subway 😀 But it was a unique experience there! It’s the first time for me to make my own sandwich from A to Z or I’d rather say “watch it done”! That was nice however a bit expensive!
And now we are on our way to Suzies’ (our KL hostel) of course we spend lots of time to reach there, but finally and after walking for around two hours, we reached our home in KL!
Next blog will be about our first day at KL…
