Indonesia

Hi All,

We are currently in Manado, Sulawesi, Indonesia, we have been a bit lazy with updating our blog, mainly as there is so much to do, such a fantastic country!

So far we have travelled right across Indonesia, Sumatra, Java, Bali, Lombok, Sumbawa, Sulawesi, with Flores and Timor left before crossing to Timor Leste and shipping to Australia.

We have found Indonesia to be remarkable, such diversity, everything from teeming coral reefs, orang-utan filled jungles to smoking volcanoes, and a myriad of religions and cultures; probably our favourite place on our trip.

Not many overlanders seem to travel to Indonesia, but we would 100% recommend it, sure there are a lot of ferries to catch, but I guess that just adds to the experience!

A few updates below,
Sulawesi
Lombok
Lombok – Diving the Gilis
Java
Noth Sumatra

Let us know your reading and leave us a comment,


Martin & Nicole

Great Photos!

We loved Indonisia but that's >10 years ago. We backpacked back then. Bloody hot spot with a heavybackpack I seem to recall.

The pictures brought it back to me! Thanks for sharing.

Merv.
