Happy Earth Day! Did you know that Indonesia has over 3,300 species of birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians? And that Indonesia is home to almost 30,000 species of vascular plants? While it has one of the world’s highest biodiversity, many of Indonesia’s valuable species are endangered. Spread awareness and contribute towards protecting Indonesia’s environment.

April 21 is Kartini Day! Today is a celebration of Indonesia’s heroine, Raden Ajeng Kartini, who paved the path for women’s rights and was a strong advocate for education. If it were not for her, girls would have not been able to go to school in Indonesia. Today is not only a celebration of her life and legacy, but also a reminder to continue striving for equality, freedom, and the opportunity to education.

Cheers,

Proud Indonesian

Mount Bromo for the weekend!

I’ll be taking a break from city life to reunite with nature at Mount Bromo in East Java, Indonesia. Before trekking Mount Bromo, I’ll be stopping by in Surabaya and Malang. It’ll be my first trip to all three locations, so excited! Have you been there before? Share your tips and recommendations!
