As for us, senior citizens, it is very expensive to travel to western countries, such as UK, US and EU. So it would appear that these countries will be out of our travel plans for this year. The Asian countries are still within our budget, but as the cost of living are rising fast, the other option will be to travel locally within Malaysia. Malaysia do have interesting places to visit, but as the saying goes, the grass is always greener on the other side. Anyway, the heat is the main damper travelling here in Malaysia.
