In a quaint, quiet valley of Borneo lays a sleepy little village called Tambatuon. It’s here that my tour started its second week/second tour.

We were based in a homestay for a night to enjoy the quiet surroundings and a cooking class.

The weather wasn’t the best and to be honest most people just slept away the afternoon after our short village walk.

As always the flowers captured me.

Pineapple growing

I never realised how pineapples grew!

Tambatuon is quite a small village and miles away from anything it seemed. There’s plenty of dogs and chickens roaming around, but most families seem to have their own spot for a small farm and growing rice.

As we left the Kota Belud area, we managed to catch a glimpse of Mount Kinabalu…
