Arrived at Tanjung Balai Port


Cleaning the bike can only mean one thing…

Yes we’re shipping to Malaysia!

After another long day battling the traffic on the trans Sumateran highway, we arrived in Tanjung Balai and went to see the ferry company.

Many phone calls later we followed someone to see customs at the port, who told us that tomorrow’s boat is too small and we’d have to wait another day… maybe.

Much pleasing and promises to make the bike smaller by removing luggage and possibly the wheels too (what the?!), and we’re back on tomorrow’s boat. Probably.

The boat is a passenger ferry so it should be interesting getting it through the door 🙂

They’re almost done, gotta go, more on the blog soon about the amazing time we had in the rainforest at Bukit Lawang.
