Haunted Paradise Island


Gili Trawangan might appear entirely and utterly flat, but a few sharp eyed visitors might notice a fairly prominent hill that rises to the south-west of the island. You’d be forgiven for never knowing it was there, and I’m sure most people leave the island completely oblivious to it’s existence. It was marked as ‘Gili

Into the Coconut Forest


When you cross the middle of Gili Trawangan, you’ll see small villages, local huts, new mini-resorts and a few cows, all dotted within a seemingly never ending forest of palm trees. They stretch as far as you can see, lining the main path that links two sides of the island. Most afternoons, after the midday

Swimming with Turtles on Gili T


We finally made it! Since we left home I’ve been dying to get into a warm sea, to dive deep and swim with the fishes. We were almost there. After Kuala Lumpur, we had a long and arduous journey back to Indonesia. The Gili Islands to be exact. In 16 hours we crammed in two plane journeys,

24 HRS in Kuala Lumpur


We knew that one month wouldn’t be enough to explore the southern part of Indonesia like we wanted to. But unfortunately, as we had a free visa, we weren’t able to extend it. So we hopped onto a flight bound for Kuala Lumpur, to spend a couple of days here before heading back into Indonesia

Exploring Tegallalang Rice Terraces


You’ve probably seen the Tegallalang rice terraces all over Instagram, and for good reason! They’re a hop, skip and a jump from Ubud centre, and are a breath of fresh air from the bustle of the town. We had been cooped up for a few days, and it was so good to get outside and

He tried to open zips and rummaged around in pockets, knowing exactly where to put his sneaky little hands. When he realised there was no food, off he leapt to

… when you find paradise


I can’t tell you how much I love our guest house in Ubud. It’s the most perfect slice of paradise and we have been so lucky to have it to ourselves for the past 10 days. As soon as you leave the road, you walk down a little winding path, woodland on one side and

Campuhan Ridge Walk in Ubud


Working on the road means that even when we’re in places with a million and one things to do, sometimes we have to get our heads down and push through the emails. This week has been one of those weeks. I also came down with a sore throat and a bad cough, and we had to

Travelling Java: The Essentials


Indonesia is the 4th largest populated country on earth, and Java is home to half of it’s population. It’s a long, thin island, dotted with volcanos and temples. It’s the cultural and economic heart of Indonesia, with a history stretching back as far as mankind. Homo Erectus is nicknamed “Java Man”, with Hindu and Buddhist
