I have travelling genes from my dad. When he was still working for the Indonesian government, he travelled a lot. South Korea, Singapore, India, the Netherlands, you name it. One of the unforgettable experiences I have ever had when travelling with my parents, was the time when we were living in India for several months. Yes, I lived in India when I was 4,5 years old! Since that time I have always some kind of strange bond with that land.
You obviously know that Indonesia is in Southeast Asia and that Bali is one of the main attractions. Doh! You already know that since elementary school. Indonesia is so diverse. It has various landscapes, ethnic groups, languages and dialects, beliefs and habits. Are you thinking about your winter escape at the moment? Why not Indonesia? When Indonesia is the main topic, allow me to share some insider tips about places and habits that maybe, just maybe, many travellers have not discovered it.
