Set against the stunning Prambanan temple, the Ramayana ballet is an epic tale of love, battles and duty, showcased in dazzling theatrical dance and traditional gamelan music.

As the largest Hindu temple in Java, the ethereally slender and graceful temple of Prambanan is a magnificent spectacle to behold and an icon of Indonesia’s cultural heritage.

I’m always happiest when close to the ocean. The gentle breeze in your hair, your fingers gliding the waves, and a sense of tranquility that a busy, urban city can no longer offer. 

Belitung Island was a refreshing escape, surrounded by turquoise waters, island hopping, and perfect weather. I hope you feel a sense of calm and relaxation through this video, wherever you are.

Destination: Belitung Island


Being in Belitung Island felt like being transported to a world of shimmering, crystal clear waters, striking granite rock landscapes and softly swaying palm trees. The weather was especially perfect, with the sun beaming brightly and a cool tropical breeze throughout the weekend.

Hello Again!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted - I’m sorry! I promise to take care of this blog better, this blog was what got me through homesickness after all and it’s always fun to share Indonesian travel stories!

Happy 69th Independence Day, Indonesia! You continue to amaze and inspire me with your interesting intricacies and I’ve learned something new every day since moving back home. There’s been a lot of ups and downs since moving back but it’s been a thrilling roller coaster ride. Proud to be an Indonesian, always.
