During my trip to Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia I spent a day at a beautiful island called Sapi Island (read my post about my day). The end of the day, however, was not so great…
Welcome to the first entry of the Black Girl Travel Diaries.
I’m starting this series of blog posts to share my experiences of travelling as a black woman. So it’s going to be all about race and gender and how I feel that affect my travels to different countries, both positively and negatively.
14th February, Valentine’s Day. The day of love in which people profess their love, or just another commercialised holiday, depending on how you want to look at it.
This year, I spent Valentine’s Day in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia. I thought I’d share a funny story of how I nearly (nearly being a bit of a stretch) found love in Kota Kinabalu.
Picture beautiful blue skies, a white sandy beach, sparkling blue green seas and a vibrant green forest with monkeys swinging from tree to tree. This is what greeted me when we arrived at Sapi Island in Malaysia. I’m actually jealous of myself right now lol, I wish I was still there rather than here writing this blog post in a very windy and rainy London.
