Indonesia is such a magical place that I never thought I would end up in. A chance encounter in Singapore and then next thing I knew I was on a 35 minute ferry to Batam, Indonesia. A business center, close to Singapore, lots of multinational companies, not a tourist place – just a place to do business. From there the adventure began and for now the pictures will do the talking. From mountains, rice fields, Hindu temples, Muslim holy sites, breath-taking beaches, and the sweetest people on earth. Indonesia will enchant you.
Bali, never ceases to amaze me, from magnificent mountains to rugged
coastlines to volcanic hillsides to black sandy beaches, it’s no surprise Bali is known as the
Island of the gods. Located between the Java and Lombok island, Bali boasts a rich and
diverse with a predominantly Hindu culture that is rare form in the Muslim dominated country of Indonesia. It was in the late 1970s that a flock of hippies went on to explore this beautiful island, especially the beaches of Kuta that attracted many surfers.
You’ll be amazed to see how the city still retains ts purification rituals by priests in white as well as the use of natural materials like bamboo and coconut wood for architectural work and many other purposes.
For me, the best of the best, the locally grown coffee made every morning such a treat!
