As has happened many times in our travels, we hit the jackpot again with our house sit here in Penang. We have been able to spend more than 2 weeks relaxing and looking after a wonderful little pug who has taught us why this breed is so loved by its owners.
Other than taking advantage of the fitness facilities and swimming pool, life has been very slow paced here. As we are able to enjoy both sunrise and sunset from the balconies in this condo, I took the opportunity as a chance to learn a bit about time lapse photography.
We also took a morning to take in a guided walk at the Penang Botanical Gardens.
I mentioned in the previous post that we had discovered the joys of Uber here in Penang. After chatting with some expats we also tried a company called Grab. It only gets better. With the specials being offered due to Ramadan it was cheaper to be driven door to door with Grab than to take public transit. Honestly, due to the heat we did not do a lot of exploring in the area. Taking an air conditioned car to any destination was definitely more comfortable. We did go on a stroll to the neighbouring fishing community one afternoon.
Our time house sitting here in Penang has been wonderfully rejuvenating. We are looking forward to spending a few days playing tourist in Georgetown before heading to our next house sit in Thailand. Work, work, work…..I love it.
