I was born in 1991. In 2012, I had the opportunity to spend 6 month in Jakarta thanks to a student exchange program. The choice of the destination was not exactly deliberate, I honestly picked Indonesia because I knew some of the other students going there.
This experienced definetely helped me to seize a professional opportunity in 2015 while I was looking for a job after graduating. I stayed 2 years in Jakarta working for an electrical engineering company.
When my contract expired, I guess I was hooked on for good into Indonesia. I spent almost another year travelling the country.
I have still so much to see. This country is amazing.
About this website
I created the website I wished I had found when researching some more off the beaten track destinations. The articles are mostly aimed at independent travelers. You won’t find any fancy hotel or restaurant recommendation here.
Learning the basics of Bahasa Indonesia would help you immensely to visit some more remote areas.
