Am about to do a disappearing act again, this time to Taman Negara for three days in the rainforest. Am excited as it is quite a while since I was last there, and much too long since I walked around among trees with a pair of binoculars round my neck. (I don't read books all the time, y'know!) I am most looking forward to the night walks and finding mammals in the tree tops by torchlight. (Am good at it, should you ever want to hire my services.)
Wonder just how much my sister and her family will freak out when they see their first huge spider or centipede ... or heaven forbid a snake ... wonder who will scream loudest when they get their first leech bite and see a pool of blood in their shoe ...
Enjoyed telling them all that there is no fence at all between you and the tigers and the giant reticulated pythons! And how wet and muddy and insect bitten they will get.
But it's all great fun, isn't it? Well, isn't it?
