Adventure looms large in this vast and steamy archipelago, where the best of southeast Asia's spicy melange simmers tantalisingly. Heady scents, vivid colours, dramatic vistas and diverse cultures spin and multiply, their potent brew leaving your senses reeling. Indonesia's cities are in a constant state of urban evolution, where dense populations, technology and construction live in hectic symbiosis. But most of the archipelago's territory remains unexplored, concealing a wealth of cultures and a myriad of landscapes.

Two of the world's great creatures I saw for the first time today. The Komodo dragon is the world's largest lizard and the manta ray is the world's largest ray with, respectively, a longer body and longer wingspan than that of humans. Last night I booked ... Read more >

After having been to Indonesia four times, I feel I've found my favourite place in the country. Gunung Kelimutu has a set of three lakes that change colour and are often three different colours. After arriving by plane from Kupang to Ende yesterday, ... Read more >

Gates of Hell at Sea

Thu, 23 Feb 2023 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [36]

Kupang is an alright place; more of a transit point than a destination. I only planned on being here for one night or maybe two but thanks to all sorts of things, I've now been here a week. Late in 2014 I travelled from Kuala Lumpur to Bali without flying, ... Read more >

The Forgotten Half

Sat, 18 Feb 2023 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [22]

Timor-Leste and part of Indonesia are both on the island of Timor. Before Timor-Leste's independence, this island probably saw only a few intrepid visitors each year. Leaving Timor-Leste I entered Indonesia at the town of Wini. Indonesia has started ... Read more >

Stop the knallpot terror!

Mon, 15 Aug 2022 | By johannhermann | Views [153]

(BH) Bevor es weitergeht mit den bunten Abenteuern der Familie Hermann muss aber nochmal eine Abhandlung von der Verkehrssituation geschrieben werden. Weil, die ist wirklich was ganz Besonderes hier. Ich mein, wir haben ja schon so einiges auf unseren ... Read more >

Geh weg! Gehweg weg!

Fri, 5 Aug 2022 | By johannhermann | Views [145]

(JH) So, jetzt ist es also so weit. We did it. It’s done! Wir sitzen in einem komplett anderen Eck unseres Planeten und klarerweise fühlt sich alles noch völlig surreal an. Natürlich ist man 24h unterwegs und ebenso logisch ist es, ... Read more >

Mon, 30 Sep 2019 | By dangerruss | Views [271]

  I usually try to write a lot along the way when traveling, but this trip I found myself posting to InstaBook more than writing (search #russinbali on Insta or Facebook for more pics and stories). However I had plenty of time on the long flight ... Read more >

Balinese Money-changers

Mon, 4 Feb 2019 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [406]

Money changers are everywhere in Bali, and seem to dot every corner in Kuta or Legian. Every other business here is, seemingly, either a money changer or a massage joint, each with varying degrees of dubiosity. You don't need a degree in nuclear physics ... Read more >

Pura Lempuyang

Thu, 31 Jan 2019 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [328]

Oksana and I went to Batur yesterday, and today we'd do an excursion to Pura Lempuyang and the rice terraces of northeast Bali. First, I'd like to talk about another travel lesson regarding something that (nearly) happened to me yesterday. When I went ... Read more >

On the Back of an Ojek...

Sun, 27 Jan 2019 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [338]

For the last couple of days I've been a tourist: breakfast at the hotel followed by going to the beach. The monotony broken by a bit by flying Juliett (my drone) and then going to dinner at a touristy restaurant in the evening. This kind of travel is ... Read more >
