Paradise Island
Wow! It seems like you found the perfect paradise island to relax on and unwind towards the end of your wonderful time in Indonesia. I have really enjoyed reading your blogs on your travels in Indonesia, and I'm very happy to read that you had a wonderful time there. May such lovely memories stay in your mind until the next time you are able to travel again.

Second home
KL is one of those hubs that is easily embraced. So much to see and do. Plus you got a lot of business done.

KL stay
Yes, we can recommend the Ramada Complex (although we had a private appartment - but both use the same pool and other facilities). Well located in the middle of the action, yet nice, quiet and relaxing. The pool is not on the top floor but still really attractive :-)

Wow, it certainly does look like paradise! It sounds good to be able to plan in some down time towards the end of your trip, and Lombok seems like a perfect place for that 😊
19th April 2020

Yes, it is. Lombok is really perfect: it is kind of off the beaten path but without the problems that come when a place is too remote and it has a good infrastructure. And most important lovely people and amazing nature.

Good for meditation.

Lovely Flores, thank you for taking me on a trip to this special-looking island. Your journey is becoming more off-the-beaten track, and I look forward to finding out which island will be your next 😊

Komodo Dragons!
Wow, Komodo Dragons! I'm so pleased you were able to see them! And indeed, what an amazing day of snorkelling and wildlife! A lovely read, and wonderful travel escapism - thank you 😃

Good decision not to spend too much time there during the rainy season but you saw a lot in your short time.
4th April 2020

Short time
Yes, this is true. Thanks to the great tour we did with so many spots included, we could make the most of our short stay. Flores has also a lot to offer, a big variety of things to do.

Chasing Komodo
I enjoyed the book.... last chance to see. Glad you saw these creatures. They are still on our bucket list.

enjoying our welcome drink at the Frangipani Inn in Seraya

You really planned well and have introduced us to some beautiful parts of Bali. I love the lack of commercialism. Proving you can find serenity every where if you make the effort.

good planing
Oh yes, it was a lot of planning and research needed and a bit of good luck also. But when you think out of the box and look where no tourists go in Bali you can find the quiet spots. And these are still wonderful. Anyway, in the meantime I think other regions in Indonesia are more attractive - but, as always, it depends on what you are looking for :-)

Thank you for the inspiration that there are still some calm and off-the-beaten track places left in Bali. Seraya looks just that, and what a wonderful find of an accommodation, the Frangipani Inn. The owner also sounds delightful. I look forward to finding out where your next destination will be 😊

new destinations
Oh yes, we can highly recommend Seraya. For the last part of our travels, we have some hilghights left. :-) Happy you enjoyed following our trip so far. Stay safe and healthy!

Ujung Waterpalace in Amlapura

I would have liked this place
I would have loved to see the Ujung Waterpalace. A pity I missed it. I guess I have to put it up on my wish-list of places I'd love to visit. One of my favorite places in Java was actually Gunung Batur, the huge volcano. Mostly because of its sheer size. /Ake

us at the Jagir Falls

I know of an unusual site in Java
If I ever manage to visit Java again I am going to visit the Sidarjo Mud Flow. It is the largest mud volcano in the world. When tey bored for gas or possibly oil the struck a gigantic reservoir with mud. When tehy removed the drill rig thousands of cubic meters of mud rushed out of the hole each day. They haven't managed to stop the flow so still today, 14 years later, mud is spewing out of the hole. OK, I am strange to actually enjoy these kind of things. I know that. /Ake

us at the Jagir Falls

unusual sight
At least it sounds really exciting. Would love to see it one day. Well, Java will hopefully see me again. The vulcanic landscape is simply too fascinating.... :-)
26th March 2020

I'm so sorry to hear about the impact that Covid-19 is having on you...
I'm thankful for your health, and hope that you will be able to survive the economic situation. I wish Switzerland could help its citizens just as our government has. I enjoyed your blogs about Bali, and that you were able to find a bit of paradise!
27th March 2020

Thank you! Well, there is a certain support from the government. But it will take a long long time till the administrative organisation has worked through all the papers. And till then we can only sit and wait and pray. Maybe we will get something, maybe not. But we are very happy you enjoyec our blogs. Some more are about to come from Indonesia. Stay safe and healthy!

beach time at White Sand Beach

This is just a great photo of a couple that have found paradise!!! I can’t promise I won’t go, it sounds like exactly what I look for, but I won’t tell anyone else.

yes, sometimes you need to keep things a bit secret ;-)
