Leaving Langkawi was tough. I really wanted to spend a few more days there. But, reality was that the hostel that had grown to feel like home was quickly booking up for the Chinese New Year weekend, and I would need to move onward. Penang was in my sights, and George Town was the destination.
In the spirit of going with the flow, I changed my plans for Penang on the fly when I realized that fellow Langkawi roommate Sean – who has a fantastic vlog site called Twenties – would be on the same flight as I was. We bonded over our shared destination and chatted over a few duty free beers while in Langkawi before landing in Penang.
