Getting Lost in Indonesia

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!
