Movies in Malaysia

 

dec 2013 transition mapOur latest news from Malaysia:

Hello from Malaysia! We left Central America, had a brief stop in Los Angeles and are now in Langkawi, Malaysia. We enjoyed Tune Hotels in Kuala Lumpur and the Armenian Street Heritage Hotel in Penang and will share photos, movies and more from there soon!

A year ago, George and I were traveling in India and now we are in Malaysia working on taking our India videos and photos and making them into movie stories to share! One of my favorite writers, Seth Godin recently wrote “Stories are the way we navigate our world, our chance to make sense of who we are and what we do.” We look forward to making sense of three months in India. During the last year and a half on the road, we have had to replace nearly all our electronics. The moral of the story is don’t forget to back up all of your files! A giant thank you and debt of gratitude to our friend, Steve, who managed to recover our photos and videos from our broken external drive and make our movie making this month possible!
