Indonesia is such an incredible country we went there twice! We explored the underwater world of Raja Ampat and Komodo where we swam with sharks and manta rays and almost got chased by a Komodo dragon! We watched the sunrise over Borobudur in Java, one of the most sacred sites of Buddhism in the world, and saw the famous fire dancers of Bali. Monkeys galore tried to rob us too! There is such a diversity of culture and natural beauty we highly recommend exploring this amazing country if you have the chance!

Yogyakarta

Yogyakarta is another magical place – it’s main attraction being the famous Buddhist temple Borobudur which we visited at sunrise. It wasn’t very clear but still very atmospheric nevertheless with misty / cloudy skies to give a different edge to our photos! Meditating here was certainly refreshing and if you peak inside the stupors you […]
