Indonesia

IndocoverEngland was a distant memory. All I could see out of the plane window were misty mountains, tiny islands and vast stretches of green. It was like nothing I had ever seen, and this was to be the start of my new life. I had no idea what was going to happen on the other side.

I was descending in the middle of a vast stretch of volcanic islands, 17000 to be exact, home to the largest Muslim community in the world, and 300 different languages. Known for its beaches, volcanoes, jungles sheltering elephants, tigers and Komodo dragons. On the island of Java lies Indonesia’s vibrant, sprawling capital, Jakarta, and the city of Yogyakarta, known for it’s rich culture of gamelan music and traditional puppetry. Due to an catastrophic lack of money, I would be staying stationary, primarily exploring the tiny dot that is Lombok. Please hold my hand, and come this way for more adventures in; ‘How Not To Travel’…
