    I hope you enjoyed your trip to South Africa. You were very lucky to see a leopard!

    Thank you, Jane. Yes, we considered ourselves lucky :)

    One thing we concluded is that our stay in South Africa was just too too short :(

    Ah, that gives you a reason to come back again!

    As Salam… I have always been fascinated with travelers… I love to read their experience. I want to do the same too insyaallah.. Now that things are more settle at home…would love to hear how you check for tickets, especially when you leave from other than kuala lumpur…for instance in this journey, you took Saudi air from Singapore. Do you do it through agents or do you have any recommended websites?? Jazakallah

    Salam Hazimah,

    Sorry for this late reply (I have been ignoring my blog for a while now..)
    We did all the bookings ourselves (we here refers to hubby :) ) , except for certain parts where we had to engage a travel agent (like in Myanmar), or when we think that’s the easier way to go (like with certain parts of our Turkiye trip, and the Kruger National Park).

    As for cheap fares, just google “cheap airfares” and you’ll be directed to a few useful sites/engines that do the search for you. Good luck! :)
