Our volunteer work in Mari-Mari, Perhentian Islands
Here is Mari-Mari, our quiet, green and turquoise heaven, where we are living, doing volunteer work.
We are working bit by bit and taking breaks for snorkling or playing on the beach.
In spare time we also do homeschooling. From Sara, our Penang host, we got great children’s pre-school books with quizes. Gaja loves to working on them.
In Mari-Mari there is neither electricity nor telephone signal. Of course – there is no internet as well. We have only few hours of generator in the night to charge the batteries in our phones or cameras and thats it. To share with you anything I have to go to Alunan, which is resort located nearby and kindly ask for wifi access. But Im happy about it. It makes so much peace in my life. Im sending it to you with all my heart.

Wan is also running his own little travel agency, so if you like, he can pick you up and drop you whenever you want (has a pick-up van), he can organise a trip wherever you want with a very good price (oh, yes!) or help you to get discount return ticket to the Perhentians (regular return price is 70 MR/pp).
I definitely recommend him as easy – going, open and honest guy with a big, friendly heart.
