We’ve just returned from a couple of days in lovely Penang, where we had lots of fun playing in the tropics. We stayed at the Golden Sands hotel, which was perfect for our little family unit, being very accessible for Sheridan and with lots of kid-related stuff like an indoor adventure zone and a great wading pool. We really struggled to get Mitchell out of both of these.
The only real negatives were that the visit was so short – only a couple of days – and someone broke into all of our suitcases between Penang and Beirut. Fortunately we didn’t have any valuables in the cases so the only thing they took was an old mobile phone. Unfortunately they wrecked the locks on the suitcases in the process, so the end of the holidays were spent filling out insurance paperwork with Malaysian airlines.
