Kuala Lumpur – home of the famous Petronas Twin Towers. Some love this city, some hate it. If you are starting your SE Asia trip in Singapore and then travelling to KL, be prepared to ‘step back in time by at least 20 years’ (these are not my words but the tourist guide’s from KL Tourist centre).

So it’s been a week since I started my South East Asia trip and the other day I managed to bump into a couple Lithuanians. It’s funny how this encounter completely changed my view of travelling. The boys were crazy. They wanted to stay off the beaten track and purposely get themselves into such situations where they would have no clue what to do. I’m talking ‘life or death’ kind of situations. And they made me question is there a right way to backpack?
