Mount Batur Kintamani Bali Indonesia

Mount Batur is based in an area called Kintamani and located in North-East Bali. The collection of small villages of Batur, Kintamani and Penelokan are based at the large basin-shaped crater rim of Batur. The area has natural beauty and should be on your agenda if in the area. The village of Toyo Bungkah is based at the lakes edge and is a traditional Balinese village. The greatest respect should be shown to the locals in this area, which means dressing and acting appropriate. Continue reading

Nusa Lembongan Indonesia

Nusa Lembongan is located 30 minutes and 12 Kilometres off the South East coast of Bali. It’s 8 square kilometres in size and linked to Nusa Ceningan across the famed yellow bridge. The island is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Bali’s main resorts if you’re looking to escape.  Heading off for a day on a tropical paradise will be a welcome break from Kuta’s constant hawkers and persistent sellers.

The next adventure – Indonesia

We will be embarking on our tour of Indonesia including Bali, the Gili Islands and finally to Lombok. We’re training hard so we can make the summit of Mount Rinjani. We are both looking forward to the break, and will update the blog as we bounce around the different islands we are visiting and will update as we can.

We haven’t ventured to Indonesia before so eyes will be wide open to take everything in and are excited at the prospects of visiting places that’s been on our list forever, and have a feeling that we’re going to be exploring many places that we may call home for a few months every year.

To say we’re not excited is an understatement, and can’t wait to be able to look out on these unbelievable views that reach to the Gili islands and Bali on a clear day, and with our new Go Pro to hand, hope to bring you our experiences as we achieve another goal off our endless to do list. Our future plans to quit our working lives and to be able to travel sustainably are forever coming closer (watch this space) and we will endeavor to bring you an insight into these beautiful lands through our eyes, that will hopefully give you some inspiration to get out and see these amazing places.

Palolem Chai Shop South Goa

A warm welcome will greet you as you enter Palolem Chai shop. A visit here should definitely include a tea at Mr Babu’s street food stall. Especially if you’re on a budget and trying to save a few rupee’s, and I for one can vouch for his impressive “sexy chai” as he has aptly named it, and at 10 rupees it’s a steal. Continue reading

Georgetown Penang – Street Art

Georgetown Penang street art. Around every corner awaits surprises as you search around the Unesco heritage site with map in hand, seeking out street art. Artists have left a trail of “works” for you to find and there are a few hidden treasures that aren’t on the map and some are quite elusive and require you to hunt them down. Continue reading

Tiger Cave temple Krabi

We had previously heard about the Tiger Cave temple the last time we were visiting Thailand. Unfortunately we didn’t have enough time in our schedule to follow it through.

We had already trekked for 5 hours around Krabi towns main sites and river front in the heat, and the thought just popped into my head “lets go and tackle stair hell”.  This sounded a good idea at the time, little knowing what was ahead of us.  Nor the punishment I was ready to put my butt & thighs through, let alone my favourite T-shirt of the moment.
