One day however, I managed to conquer a huge fear of mine - heights. I went parasailing over and above the sea and mountains in Penang and I am very chuffed to say - I didn't find the experience as terrifying as I had imagined. In fact it wasn't scary at all. It was an experience that I will never EVER forget - the view was absolutely incredible and it is something I have always wanted to give a try but never quite had the courage to.
Looking back on the holiday as a whole now that I am back home I can definitely say that it was a very memorable trip and would recommend that everyone takes a venture to the Far East - yes it is expensive flying out there (but book your flights early to save the cash monies) but when you're out there the food is delicious, the clothes are beautifully stylish, the scenery is the most exquisite, untouched and natural thing yo'll ever feast your eyes on and the unbelievable part is: it is ridiculously CHEAP. I'm hoping to to go to somewhere like Vietnam or Cambodia next year with friends - I simply can't get enough of travelling. It truly is enlightening.
