The Long Road to Bali

After leaving Koh Lanta and making our way back to Phuket (4 hours)and a heated debate with Pat regarding the pros/cons of Die Hard 2 (he's not a fan, idiot) we stayed in modest rooms 5 mins from the airport as we had an 8am flight to Bali via Kuala Lumpur. Dinner at the nearby beach was probably one of the worst meals as they couldn't figure out the difference btw curry & noodles as well as Shawn fishing out a huge hair that had curled around the corn and chicken on his plate (gross), haha. But what can you really expect from a place that has a sign reading "Broken English Spoken Perfectly, 100%" They did have some GIANT prawns that were actually good and we turned in pretty early and set up a cab pick up for 6am.

With 5 of us (and our bags) jammed into a tiny taxi we make it to the airport with plenty of time to enjoy Thailand's take on donuts. Quick flight to Kuala Lumpur where we had a 3 hour layover. The airport here is super modern and looks brand new. Couldn't resist a stop at Starbucks for a latte or laughing at the ridiculous billboard picture at McDonald's of the "Double Prosperity Burger" haha. On another note, the weapon of choice for cops in the Kuala Lumpur Airport is the H & K MP5 assault rifle (an excellent choice in my opinion). After grabbing another book (finished two already, 1300 pages, yes I have free time) the flight was delayed for an hour which we judiciously spent in the sports bar.

Next stop.........Bali


  1. I am in full agreement with Pat, Die Hard 2 was a modern cinematic travesty. It should never have been made. Die Hard 1 has a strong argument for best action movie of all time, and 3 was a damn good flick as well. Die Hard 2 fell WAY to short of the mark. 2 and 4 should have been 1 and 2 of a different movie series all together. Maybe, Damn Hard to watch 1 and 2. All who oppose this opinion are lesser human being who have neigh an understanding of what a good movie is. Slap yourself. Better yet, get Pat to slap you.

  2. Oh, and Luke, the Kecklar & Koch MP5 is a sub-machine gun, not an assault rifle. Again, slap yourself.
