    Ep.48 - Mt. Bromo & Kawah Ijen - Highlights of Java, Indonesia (Budget Travel Guide)

    Ep.48 - Mt. Bromo & Kawah Ijen - Highlights of Java, Indonesia (Budget Travel Guide)

    Mount Bromo is probably Indonesia’s most famous active volcano and sits at the Eastern end of Java between Surabaya and Yogyakarta. It's part of the Tengger massif and in the Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park. 

    Kawah Ijen. A beast of a volcano, just shy of 3000 meters, will leave you gasping. Not only for air but also for a truly unique experience. It's home to the largest acidic lake in the world measuring only 0.7ph (with battery acid being 1ph!).

    Java is only the fourth largest island in Indonesia but contains more than half of the nation’s population and dominates it politically and economically. The capital of Java and of the country is Jakarta (formerly Batavia), which is also Indonesia’s largest city. If you're looking for inspiration on what to see and do in Java, you've come to the right place!

    In this episode, we dive deep into how to go about visiting the famous volcanoes of Java:

    1. When were we there and for how long;

    2. Our reason for going;

    3. Highlight or standout experience;

    4. Transport around;

    5. Challenges;

    6. Budget;

    7. Overall impression;

    Ep.47 - Yogyakarta City, Indonesia (Budget Travel Guide)

    Ep.47 - Yogyakarta City, Indonesia (Budget Travel Guide)

    We weren’t quite prepared for how much we would love Yogyakarta and somewhat regret spending only a few days there. Nevertheless, we made the most of our time and now have a place we would like to revisit on our return to Indonesia!

    Yogyakarta - often called simply ‘Jogja’ (Y’s are pronounced like J’s in Bahasa), shares the name of the capital city of Jakarta yet they could not be more different! Jakarta has over nine million people in its hazy underbelly – interspersed with skyscraper malls and some of the most congested traffic you will find anywhere in the world. While Jogja retains a calmer soul, is culturally rich in ancient Javanese arts and home to less than half a million inhabitants. Yogyakarta today is home to the nation’s most prestigious university, a well-established art & music scene and picturesque landscape. 

    Java is only the fourth largest island in Indonesia but contains more than half of the nation’s population and dominates it politically and economically. The capital of Java and of the country is Jakarta (formerly Batavia), which is also Indonesia’s largest city. If you're looking for inspiration on what to see and do in Java, you've come to the right place! 

    As Yogyakarta is synonymous with both Prambanan and Borobudur Temples we include our experience and recommendations on both these magnificent temples. 

    In this episode we discuss:

    1. When were we in Yogyakarta and for how long;

    2. Prambanan Temple 

    3. Borobudur Temple 

    4. Highlight and standout experience;

    5. What the weather is like;

    6. Food;

    7. Must-See & Do ;

    8. Transport and getting around;

    9. Budget;

    10. Overall impression;

    Ep.45 - Going to Lombok, Indonesia (Travel Guide)

    Ep.45 - Going to Lombok, Indonesia (Travel Guide)

    Thinking of visiting Lombok, Indonesia? If you're looking for inspiration on what to see and do in Lombok, you've come to the right place! 

    The Gili’s, together with Mt Rinjani, are Lombok's most famous icons and are consistently rated among the top destinations in South East Asia by travellers and travel publications. Every year the Gili’s attract tens of thousands of visitors from around the world to their pristine waters, great diving and laid-back charm. However, the lesser-visited main island of Lombok has no lack of its own stunning beaches and scenery. The south of Lombok especially has a wonderfully laid-back lifestyle, almost year-round sunshine - as well as for some of the best surf breaks in Indonesia!

    For more on Lombok you should have a look at the following articles on our blog:

    Ep.44 - Volunteering (WorkAway) While You Travel - Our First Experience.

    Ep.44 - Volunteering (WorkAway) While You Travel - Our First Experience.

    In this episode, we talk about our very first volunteering (Workaway) experience. We spent three weeks volunteering our time at an Eco Jungle Camp at the northernmost tip of Borneo. If you’re considering volunteering or a Workaway experience, this discussion might help shed some light on what to expect. We discuss the following aspects:


    How our opportunity came about and why we considered doing it.

    Where we volunteered and what our tasks and responsibilities were.

    Did volunteering turn out as we expected?

    The good and the bad of our volunteering experience.

    Is volunteering for you?

    Would we do it again?
