Thank You Langkawi!

We met some of the most lovely and kind people while in Langkawi, so I had to write a thank you post.

We didn’t ask for or expect any of these things, but we are so grateful!

To the local man who paid for our meal, thank you! You might not have had much to give, and you probably didn’t realise that we were having a terrible day because Morgan’s computer had just died and we were lost at what to do. But you helped us look on the bright side. 🍛☕

To the people who made us feel so welcome even though we probably looked and sounded like dumb tourists and didn’t dress the way you do. Thank you! 🏝️

To the man who gave us a free iced tea, you didn’t know, but that was the day my grandfather passed away and your kindness was so special. Thank you. 🥤

To the lady and man who gave us a little bit of extra coffee in our thermos each day – that’s the reason we kept coming back!

To the lady who gave us an extra donut when we went back to buy more because we flew over a bump on our moped and dropped the last one. Thank you! 🍩

To the people who smiled at us every day. It doesn’t take much to give a smile, but it can mean so much to someone else. You made us feel so welcome. Thank you. 😁

To the locals leaving out food and water for the cats. And to those who are finding them homes, and especially to those who are getting them neutered. Thank you. 🐱

To the lady who reached out to us just for a catch up and to the lady who invited us on a tour to teach us more about ecotourism, thank you. ✌️

To the locals who didn’t charge us to diagnose our laptop when it died, thank you! 😭💻

To the friendly bartender who gave us a little extra, we don’t want to get you in trouble, but thank you! That’s why we keep coming back 😋 🍻

To the locals and expats who are trying so hard to care for the dogs of Langkawi, I have so much respect for you. I know it’s not easy, but you’re doing a good job. Thank you from the doggos and the bottom of my heart. ♥️🐕

There are good people everywhere, but in Langkawi we’ve experienced such overwhelming kindness in such a short period of time.

To all the locals who assumed I was also a local and spoke Malay to me – unfortunately I’m not! But thank you for understanding that I don’t speak your language 😅

Sometimes people can be a bit fearful traveling to different places and interacting with different cultures. But we have found the locals here to be very understanding and accepting.

Being what some would call a ‘mixed couple’, but we like to call a, ‘super happy awesome Oreo Mocha blend,’ we’ve got some interesting comments on our travels. Sure, we still got a few stares/glares/odd questions from time to time, but mostly the locals here made us feel so welcome.

And finally, thank you to all the lovely people I’ve missed in this post who helped make Langkawi our favourite place so far.✌️🙏🤝
