We Moved to Brunei!
You know I love to travel, so when a job came up in Brunei it was hard to say no.
Rick and I moved to Brunei about two weeks after we got married - to be honest with you it’s been a bit of a crazy year. We were talking about it earlier, all the places we’ve been to this year (Cyprus, Gibraltar, Copenhagen, Lisbon…the list goes on), along with some major life changes. Nothing like living life to the full!
Brunei is on the island of Borneo, close to the Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia. In fact, the rest of Borneo is split into Malaysia and Indonesia, so there are three countries in one here, which is quite interesting.
We live in the southern bit of Brunei, close to the Malaysian border. We’re sandwiched between two towns: Seria, and the larger Kuala Belait. It’s a very quiet place, although there are two cinemas nearby, a bowling alley and plenty of restaurants to sample. Other than that, you have to make your own entertainment really - Netflix comes in very handy!
Travelling around SE Asia
People thought we were a bit mad moving to the other side of the world so shortly after getting married, but to us it’s been a real adventure. We’re well placed for travel around SE Asia, and have already been to Kuching, Singapore and Hong Kong. We have plans for Kuala Lumpur in the next few weeks, and have booked a big holiday to Japan next year - we justified that by saying its our belated honeymoon, but we’re treating all our trips as a belated honeymoon, so…
It’s been a real change of pace for both of us, but three months in and life is good - and of course we’re looking forward to many more adventures!
