Losing love in Lombok

Tuesday, 13 Oct 2009 | Views [378] | Comments [1]

The title of this story says it all really... Andy and I broke up in Lombok.  I still don't quite understand where it all went wrong, but I am now back in Kuta, Bali and have a flight to Australia on the 20th October. I have 4 days in Melbourne with ... Read more >

I left Lovina to go to the Gili islands which are just off the coast of Lombok - the journey didn't go quite as planned!  Firstly Rose and I were told the boat was broken and we would have to spend the night at the port of Pandang Bai and then the bus ... Read more >

Friday, 25 Sep 2009 | Views [559]

Whilst in Kuta i decided to take a surf lesson as its meant to be an amazing place to surf... not for me!  After about 2 hours of standing up for one second and then dramatically falling off, i gave up.  I had been totally abused by the surf board and ... Read more >

Brillient Bali!!!

Saturday, 19 Sep 2009 | Views [479]

After spending the night in a stupidly overpriced room the Canadian girl announced she was going to the airport to get a flight to Singapore!  I think she was a bit whimsicle and didn't really know what she wanted to do... she kept saying she wanted ... Read more >

Temples and kamakazi driving to Bromo!

Wednesday, 16 Sep 2009 | Views [591]

On my third day in Yogyakarta i decided to be a bit cultural and booked a trip to both Borobudur and Prabanam temples.  It was only an extra 60pence to do both places so it made sense to do both.  The 4:20am alarm wasn't much fun but i knew the afternoon ... Read more >

Jakarta - cockroach's and a dinner date

Saturday, 12 Sep 2009 | Views [852] | Comments [1]

I wasn't too sure what to call this little story, i was thinking maybe 'Culture shock and tears' or 'jakarta - avoid it like the plague' or 'hell on earth' also crossed my mind! You have probably guessed that I didn't really like Jakarta and had a pretty ... Read more >

Beautiful Lake Toba

Monday, 7 Sep 2009 | Views [551]

Finally, time to recover, relax and get a tan!  We hopped on the ferry from Parapat to Samosir which is an island in the middle of Lake Toba.  We got off the little ferry at Samosir Cottages and were met by a guy called Buddy who showed us to Reeption ... Read more >

Volcano Climbing in Bergastagi

Saturday, 5 Sep 2009 | Views [585] | Comments [1]

After a long bus journey from Bukit Lawang we arrived in Bergastagi absolutely shattered.  I promptly refused do climb any volcano as i thought my legs might fall off!  I wanted to chill out at Lake Toba then stop and climb Mount Sibayak on our way back ... Read more >

Medan - crazy town!

Sunday, 30 Aug 2009 | Views [486] | Comments [2]

It was a very early start for Han and I this morning - 6:30am!!  We'd been up late chatting so we were not happy when the alarm went off, but we had to cath our flight to Medan, Sumatra (Indoneasia) at 10:30am.  We kind of waddle (highly ungraceful)with ... Read more >
