Indonesia: June 13-22, 2016

  • Seminyak, Mt Batur, Ubud & Jimbaran
  • Currency: Indonesian Rupiah
  • Brushing up on my nearly non-existent surfing skills in the waves in Seminyak
  • Stay: Tijili in Seminyak – good prices for a nice hotel with a pool, and close to the beach
  • Cheap food YAY
  • Massages on massages on massages
  • Waking up at 1am to go hike up Mt Batur and see the sunrise from the top
    • Almost gave up 3 times
    • Spent the entire hike up wishing I didn’t smoke so much, only to reach the top and light up a “I-deserve-this” cigarette
    • Eating breakfast at the top (hardboiled eggs, and banana sandwiches cooked in the steam from the volcano)
    • Stopping by a little monkey community on the way down
    • Wishing that bae would stop filming videos of me almost falling over while coming down the volcano
  • Stopping at a coffee and chocolate farm after and trying the famous poop coffee… it was very smooth.
  • Walking in the rice terraces of Ubud in the boiling heat and almost regretting opting for a longer tour
  • Stopping by the famous and overrated Monkey Forest
  • Driving through villages and seeing amazing handicraft items being sold on the side of the road
  • Wedding celebrations & family reunions
  • Stay: Le Meridien in Jimbaran – expensive resort, but you pay for great service and amenities, the rooftop wedding chapel is amazing
  • Seafood BBQ on the beach and watching people release lanterns
  • Ku De Ta & Potatohead – I personally preferred Potatohead, but you should definitely check them both out
  • Spending our last moments soaking the sun at Jimbaran beach (the waves are so-so)
  • Naughty Nuri’s BBQ (for all the meat lovers out there, there’s one opening in Melbourne)
