7 Days Road Trip Malaysia – Apalah Itinerary

I am going to backtrack a bit from the blog and write up an Itinerary of my 1 week road trip around Peninsular Malaysia. This is cause after sharing on Facebook of “The Departure” post I got a comment from a friend, an upset that she could not see the itinerary before I started story telling. I know that my post are so slow some people can’t wait to see the whole picture so ….

The exact comment was – "I was hoping to see the full itinerary! Apalah …. "

Should I even call it an itinerary?? I did not really plan it and was always looking at google map thinking which route I should take or where should be the next stop to spend the night. Anyways we can call it an itinerary or summary of the places I went and a short description of things to see/do
