‘Living in 30 degree weather most days, we find ourselves dreaming about sweatshirt weather and sipping hot beverages without breaking a sweat. Luckily for us, we're able to take advantage of what British (and other) colonialists engineered hundreds of years ago in Southeast Asia.

Hill stations.

They are scattered everywhere throughout the region and we've made it a personal goal to find as many as possible to go to beat the heat.

With yet another beautiful holiday stretch before us, we jumped at the chance to explore Malaysia's Cameron Highlands with great friends Ryan & Daphne and their sweet daughter, Maya.

The highlights:

  • Some final quality time with good friends before they leave Cambodia
  • The independence of having our own rental car and the thrill of driving on the other side of the road
  • Strolling through gorgeous, emerald green manicured rolling hills (aka tea plantations and up close, they really do look like something out of a cartoon)
  • Eating copious amounts of strawberries and strawberry-related delicacies…strawberries with cream, strawberry ice cream, strawberry freezies, strawberry tea, scones with strawberry jam…the list goes on!
  • Hiking trails and playgrounds and paved streets and all the other incredible elements of a country that makes a lot of sense.
  • Food. It was so good we often ate 4-5 meals a day. Roti and curry and samosas and Starbucks, and naan, and Chinese claypot and Nasi Lemak and Teh Tarik. It's a good thing we also did a lot of walking…
