    Can you believe I stayed in Penang for nearly 45 days? When I was taking care of my accommodation and travel plans before arriving, I actually thought it would be nice to settle for a little bit more than a month for once. I was wrong. 6 weeks felt way too long! I think my ‘travel bug’ sickness isn’t ready to go away yet. I spent my days fairly similar to each other, not much was out of the usual this time around.

    Malaysia is a Digital Nomad’s Hidden Gem

    You might be wondering what a digital nomad even is? The phrase has been around for many years, but up until recent popularity of the lifestyle, it has resurfaced.

    Another country down, another month of expenses to talk about. The last place I shared with you was Bangkok, which you can read about here if you’re curious.
