Waterfalls & Rice Fields

Sunday, 1 Nov 2015 | Views [1709]

Wandering through rice fields, receiving a hydraulic massage from a waterfall, and teaching English! What do they all have in common? The answer is that I've done all three today. Gede woke me early as negotiated a lift to the waterfalls with Ahmed, ... Read more >

Aku Cinta

Friday, 30 Oct 2015 | Views [2452]

Coming over from Bali for a few days I'd experience Lombok and the "real Indonesia" for awhile. As I exited the ferry I managed to hitch a lift with a local on a motorbike from Lembar where I could immediately tell Lombok is vastly different to Bali.... Read more >


Canang sari

Friday, 23 Oct 2015 | Views [406]

If you're spending a long or even short time in Bali you'll (literally) stumble upon  canang sari , better known as daily offerings. These are little woven baskets of flowers, rice, and so forth that are an integral part of Balinese Hindu culture.... Read more >


Bali, Earthy & Gritty

Wednesday, 21 Oct 2015 | Views [367]

A year ago today I was in Bali for the first time. Bali conjures up many images: majestic sunsets on a blissful beach. The "Island of the Gods" it's often called, though one reason I like Bali is for what people don't realize it also is: earthy, gritty, ... Read more >


33 Forgettables! 33 Memories!

Sunday, 26 Oct 2014 | Views [458]

Sounds like it could be in a punnet square. Tomorrow I'm leaving Indonesia and heading to Australia. I was supposed to leave today but due to a technical issue my flight was never booked, so I got one for tomorrow. Indonesia is another complex place.... Read more >

Motor-scooting Bali

Tuesday, 21 Oct 2014 | Views [575]

After a rigourous journey through the Indonesian heart, Bali comes as a welcome surprise. Coming from relatively unvisited parts of Indonesia, Bali comes as an unpleasent surprise. Coming from well-ordered countries such as NZ and the US, Bali comes ... Read more >


Prambanan

Saturday, 18 Oct 2014 | Views [393]

Indonesia, in my book, would likely not receive any awards for containing the world's most spectacular sights...until today. Prambanan is a series of Hindu temples dating back to the 9th century. Yesterday I debated going to Borobudur but my time is ... Read more >

Jogja

Friday, 17 Oct 2014 | Views [579]

With nearly no sleep on the Senja Utama Yogyakarta last night and bleary-eyed, I got off the train in Yogyakarta (often called “Jogja” by locals and the “y” is pronounced somewhere between a “j” and a “jy.”... Read more >

The Big Durian

Tuesday, 14 Oct 2014 | Views [846]

As I stepped off the bus with my heavy bags, the searing heat and humidity bit hard! I had no clue where I was and I thought I was reasonably close to Amiel's flat but it turned out I was way off, and I was out of rupiah until I could get to an ATM. ... Read more >


Ticket out of Hell

Monday, 13 Oct 2014 | Views [509]

As the bus converged upon Palembang I could immediately see how bad the smog is; worse than any place I've ever been! My immediate thought is "get me the hell out of this shithole" and I wasn't off the bus yet! A CSer accepted my request but there'd ... Read more >


Bukittinggi to Palembang

Sunday, 12 Oct 2014 | Views [752]

The Sumatran journey continues! Last night I stayed in Bukittinggi, a town in the Sumatran highlands with a much cooler air than the lowlands. That made the stay rather pleasant. In Bukittinggi there's a few sights of interest including a few Norfolk ... Read more >


Taking on Sumatra

Friday, 10 Oct 2014 | Views [476]

As I boarded the ferry to Dumai this morning, I was aware of the length of my journey ahead. I have two of the largest islands this side of the world to traverse and the state of roads in both are iffy at best. I had wondered if the ferry was even seaworthy ... Read more >

33 Adventures, 33 Journeys

Thursday, 9 Oct 2014 | Views [489]

33 is the magic number! Let’s put it this way: I’m thankful to be out of Singapore. The only place in this world I can say I hate is Las Vegas but one place I’m not terribly fond of is Singapore. Except for a wide variety of food it’... Read more >
