The Nomadic Family Arrives to Back Home Hostel – Kuala Lumpur

There are so many reasons to travel the world, so many places that, at the threshold, like life, we had no idea how significant this next doorway would be in our lives. We are forever, forever grateful to Backhome Hostel and the home they gave us, the love, the friendships, the opportunity to be a part of the most hip, vibrant, loving, warm backpacker community we have yet, as a family or as individuals, to experience anywhere else on the globe. That, friends, says buckos.

This video was our introduction, arriving, moving in, settling down into what would become our haven, our hub in Malaysia, and our home for 35 nights. A few more entries sharing Backhome’s Awesomeness include:
Meeting the all-cool Straight Groove from Singapore (really funny, on-the-table video)
Craziest Video in the World (because boredom and a computer room are a dangerous combination)
Tension Pre-Rigged Malaysian Elections (some serious stuff, including bloggers being arrested)
– Video and really passionate Photos from the Streets on Election Day in Kuala Lumpur

Your turn:

Been to Malaysia? Fallen in love with a place, a staff, a feeling in the past before? Found home in so many little magical corners around the globe? Do tell. :-)


We’d love to connect to you also on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube.

About the Author:

Insanely unorthodox, embarrassingly honest, and on her path towards spiritual awareness, Gabi Klaf blogs about her family’s ups and downs in their now third year of non-stop budget world travel. This family of five has lived with an indigenous tribe in the jungles of Ecuador, hitchhiked throughout the world, danced with drunk Vietnamese at weddings, and hiked the entire Annapurna Circuit trek where a film crew accompanied them for the documentary movie about how The Nomadic Family is redefining modern family life. They are now spending six months in Goa, India. Gabi writes about the untold sides of family travel life, those moments that take your breath away, adventures and mishaps while globetrotting, and how bits of her soul remain in this small town and off the side of that river. She is a guitar-stumming, energy-healing, ADHD wind-loving scaredy cat. Hugely romantic, tantalizingly sweet, and hysterically funny, Gabi Klaf represents a rare Rubik’s Cube of family world adventure.
