My route home

Sometimes if you take the car or the bus home you can miss out on so much. I mean sure, the bus could be much faster, but you really miss out on the countryside. Like this for example, I would probably have never discovered the real beauty of my area had I not chosen to walk home and explored some different routes.

See the bird flying?

The path I had just trodden upon

Look at that tree

Its such an amazing thing watching the clouds roil as they move along turbulently. Pity the clouds in Malaysia crawl slower than a snail to be able to see any effect.

Even the sky was perfect

Also along the way I would pass through an alcove of trees, which reminds me a lot of those magical time tunnels.

What lurks beyond there?

It looks safer now :)

And I would pass through parts of the river, which has locks to raise and to lower down boats.

Notice the difference in level?

There were some kids fishing as well:

I need to add on more pictures (which compromise some of the slightly less scenic sections) towards the end, which I don't have yet.

But seriously, when everything looks so tranquil and the weather is great, a longer walk is worth a hundred dreary bus journeys. And its good for health, too!

  • yep,it always worth when you enjoy your journey.enjoy the god's creation and you got nothing to lose :) but i am so sad about condition in malaysia.really really makes me sad.if i given a choice,i prefer go holidays overseas because there are cleaner than malaysia.cant even see a small piece of paper on the road or side walks when i was in latvia.the scenery was just too beautiful compared to malaysia.walking and enjoy the scenery at the same time is just too wonderful to describe.

  • The pics are great. Really. And I can see that you enjoy to be there, to walk there and to observe! Not to forget: To share with others. Thank you.
