15/08/18 Singapore; the final stop in this adventure! I can't believe we've reached the end (for now). The flights here were relatively painless. We flew from Flores to Jakarta, then from Jakarta to Singapore. On our second flight, the most bizarre thing happened. Shortly after take off, an air hostess came down the aisle, located… Continue reading Singapore

Labuan Bajo, Flores

09/08/18 Indonesia is an emotional rollercoaster. Yesterday, we finally arrived in Labuan Bajo from Lombok, after a four hour delay at our stopover in Bali. Unfortunately, my bag didn't make it past Bali; the carousel stopped, signifying it had finished delivering luggage, and I was left standing there bagless. Luckily my labelless bag was sitting… Continue reading Labuan Bajo, Flores

Kuta, Lombok

06/08/18 I had many fears and anxieties about coming travelling, but one thing I hadn't even considered I should be scared of was natural disasters. Last night whilst eating dinner, a huge magnitude seven earthquake struck Lombok, 38 miles North from Kuta Town where we are. We felt it very hard. Everyone ran out of… Continue reading Kuta, Lombok

Gili Air, Lombok

01/08/18 Nobody panic, but it's AUGUST. Crikey where has this year gone. We got a boat from Gili T to Gili Air this morning. Gili Air is the medium sized of the three Gili Islands, and named so as "air" translates to "water" from Indonesian (very confusing), and Gili Air is the only island of… Continue reading Gili Air, Lombok

Gili Trawangen, Lombok

28/07/18 If my mother was here, she'd be saying that us getting to Gili T just "isn't meant to be", and I'd be giving her "the look". We got up at 4am this morning for our transfer to the airport, for the flight we'd booked last minute to Lombok (due to the sea being too… Continue reading Gili Trawangen, Lombok

Padangbai, Bali

25/07/18 We are having an absolute nightmare. We arrived in Padangbai, where the boats leave from to go to the Gili Islands (our next location), only to find that all boats have been cancelled due to bad weather out at sea. We have three nights booked here in Padangbai, which gives us 2 days to… Continue reading Padangbai, Bali

Ubud, Bali

21/07/18 Ubud is so effortlessly cool. A town intwined with jungle and surrounded by rice paddies, with vegan cafes and crystal jewellery shops lining the many little streets and alleys. Today we went for lunch at Arak CafĂ© which was really lovely. Then we walked up Campuhan Ridge; a trail high up, with beautiful views… Continue reading Ubud, Bali

Seminyak, Bali

18/07/18 We've made it to Indonesia! Pretty much our final country, except for a couple of days in Singapore. The flight was fine, but the 3 hour period of time between landing and getting to our hotel was absolute chaos. We landed and got through immigration in about 10 minutes, which is always a fabulous… Continue reading Seminyak, Bali

Kuala Lumpur

15/07/18 Kuala Lumpur is so cool. Like someone's crazy design for a futuristic city, except it's actually all here and real! We arrived yesterday evening and walked to the Petronas Twin Towers to see them by night; their immensity is unfathomable. They're so incredibly detailed that from a distance it looks like you could rub… Continue reading Kuala Lumpur

Tanah Rata, Cameron Highlands

13/07/18 We've had a beautiful (and exhausting) two days in the Cameron Highlands. It's actually really cold here, which is a nice change from 30+ degrees, however we're not overly prepared for cold weather so we do get pretty chilly. Yesterday afternoon we asked our hotel owner if he could advise of a nice easy… Continue reading Tanah Rata, Cameron Highlands
