2nd STOP INDONESIA: THE DREAM OF SWIMMING IN THE SEA
Here we are in a warm and humid place. During our last days in India we were very much looking forward to Indonesia and overall to relax on great beaches! We arrived in Jakarta and were well surprised about this city. Quite clean and really friendly people. That was a big change for me. Moreover the food is fantastic. Aaah it’s fine to eat proper meat again and juicy fruits hmmm! Yet the traffic is crazy here, you end up in a traffic jam all the time and it is very polluted. Indo is famous for singing karaoke and we did it. Patrick even sang more than one song!! You cannot be shy because you have your own private cabin!! I loved it 🙂
After 2 days in Jakarta we decidedto go to nice islands for great beaches and we heard about Karimunjava. From Jakarta we 1 st had a 6 hrs train and then 2 hrs busride. Arriving in Jepara we wanted to take the ferry but it was already fully booked. Yes, we forgot that Indonesians also have school holidays. So we booked tickets for the day after. Well, and the day after the boats were unable crossing due to 5 m swell/waves. Oh nooooooo!! that was a bit disappointing. As no one knew if the weather will improve we decided to take another 8hrs bus drive to Yogyakarta where we got bed bugs again!!
Enough is enough we decided to go to Bali by bus. We made a stop at the Bromo and Ijien craters. We woke up once at 3am and the night after at 1am to see the blue light and the sunrise. Just amazing and worth waking up so early!!! Yeaaaah, now we are in Bali and it is really a different ambiance! A lot of tourits but its just great to relax at the beach and do nothing else…..
