We decided to travel from Kuala Lumpur to Cherating and then to Kuala Perlis via the famous Gerik Highway hoping to see wildlife and rainforests, here’s how we did it.

We created 24 Hour Travellers in 2017 to document and share stories of our alternative lifestyle. I was a film director/photographer, Rene was a music composer/musician and we both worked in advertising for over 20 years. We were living a consumerism lifestyle that was draining us mentally and physically and we didn't know it until one day at my lowest point, I asked Rene a question: "If I were to die tomorrow, what would you do for the rest of your life?" His reply was what changed our lives forever, he said "I would pack up my guitar, leave everything behind and travel." That was when we decided to simplify our lives. We began downsizing our commitments in order to be free from debt. We also set ourselves an adventurous goal which was to drive to the UK by land in a camper van. We then searched the local market for a camper van and found out Malaysia didn't have any options. This started the ball rolling for us, we began a DIY camper van build and made videos of it for YouTube Channel. Once our tiny camper van was ready, we drove it from KL to Chiang Mai and since then, we have built another which is suppose to be the camper van we drive to the UK. Sadly, the pandemic has altered our plans. With international borders closed and no end in sight, we want to explore life living on a sailboat (with our pets) and learn to sail around Malaysia. We are complete newbies in sailing and have a lot to learn. This will be the next exciting phase and we hope to share it with you. View all posts by 24 Hour Travellers
