I am happy to report that after one and a half training sessions, several packets of skittles and a trusty hiking stick, I made it to the top of Mt. Kinabalu on 23 March 2014 where I did indeed dance my butt off to not one, but several songs.
I had previously traveled to Cambodia and got the opportunity to explore the tiny villages bordering Siem Reap. Surrounded by picturesque rice fields and filled with warm and friendly locals, it was sad to see the poor living conditions.
