We began our trip in Kuching and headed for Kubah National Park for a couple of nights' stay. We dumped our bags and walked straight out into the rainforest, filled with anticipation. Within metres of our accommodation we saw a couple of crimson-winged woodpeckers and a greater racquet-tailed drongo. I glimpsed a streak of grey-brown on a branch. It took me a few moments for my mind to come to terms with what I was seeing: a squirrel (it turned out to be a Low's squirrel). We were definitely not in Australia any more.

In April, I took a trip to Malaysian Borneo with a mate of mine, George, with the simple aim of seeing as many animals over there as humanly possible.

|Italian Wall Lizard, Podarcis sicula, Cefalù (Sicily)|
I'm in Italy. Having a below-average appreciation of history and architecture, when faced with the 2000 year-old ruins of a civilisation, my first thoughts are generally "That's nice. I bet there are some lizards hiding in those cracks".
