Beautiful Indonesia – 2010

In 2010 we went for seventeen days to Indonesia, mainly Sanur on Bali but we also visited Jogjakarta for two days. From Sanur we explored most of Bali. It was really a great adventure and I’m looking forward to returning to South-East Asia as soon as possible. But I’ve so many plans and dreams and so little time and money to fulfill them. Luckily I can look back on a few great holidays.

But back to the Indonesia experience:

  • The people on Bali are very friendly and helpful
  • It was harder to connect with the people on Java than on Bali in my opinion
  • The nature is beautiful, everywhere you look you see green
  • Hiring someone to drive you around is easy and affordable
  • Driving in Indonesia, let alone in a Bemo bus, is an adventure on itself
  • Many, beautiful temples on Bali
  • Borododur and Prambanan in Jogjakarta
  • Swam in the Holy Springs
  • Fell in the holy water of the Tirta Gangga Water Palace (woops)
  • Saw a beautiful waterfall near Tegenungan Village
  • Visited the biggest temple of Bali, Pura Besakih
  • Had a lot of fun in Waterbom Bali
  • Went snorkeling near Nusa Lembogan
  • Visited a local Balinese house
  • Helped a little on the rice fields (for the picture)
  • Swam at Nusa Dua and Kuta
  • Hopped on a rickshaw in Jogjakarta
  • Interacted with a orangutan
  • Saw the Barong dance
  • Visited the Monkey Forest
  • Enjoyed the views of the largest rice fields of Bali
  • Rode on the back of an elephant
  • Saw the Kecak dance
  • Interacted with a little white tiger
  • Haggling is a fun activity while visiting the markets
  • Bought a real Indonesia mask for 1/5 of the price they asked
  • Held an iguana
  • Took beautiful pictures
  • Felt happiness
