Ubud is an area of Bali that is located in the middle of the island, lies between the oceans and mountains that surrounds Bali. It lies between the imagined and the real, perhaps this is why it feels like Ubud still contains a little bit of the Old Bali magic left. For most that come to Bali, the centre of parties and nightlife in Seminyak or …

We started the day at the Villa for a late breakfast before making our way to Ubud via the Hotel Shuttle Bus. The walk was said to be a 9km flat relaxing walk suggested for morning activity before exploring Ubud. Considering that the next day is a big hike to the Volacano, I thought this would be a nice chilled activity to do while looking …

Follow my blog with Bloglovin After the chaos of Jakarta, we are off to Bali! We were in Bali for about 6 days and planned a few exciting adventures to see what the real Bali is all about. I have been to Bali a few times before but have always stayed in the most touristy spots for beaches and markets, never Ubud.  A lot of the …

Follow my blog with Bloglovin What a clever name for a coffee house. Coffee was introduced to the world not by the Italians but by the Turkish who made the drink a staple in their day to day. They were also known as the Ottoman Empire so hence the name Ottomans Coffee Brewers. I haven’t been back to Jakarta in a while now and coffee culture …

We had a bit of a free time before a party at the house and I asked my cousin to take me around for a couple of good coffee. The first place we visited is Ombe Kofie, this was the closest to our house, only about 5 minutes away. Ombe means drink in Javanese language, so it already sets off a nice home-ey vibe to …

Kawah Putih

February 26, 2016

As usual in Indonesia, and specifically Jakarta, we are always wasting most of our time in traffic jams. We started this trip early in the morning around 6-7am and yet we were only able to fit in one attraction and lunch before having to go back home for dinner. As much as the destination had one hell of a view, somehow a holiday in Jakarta …

The day started really early in an attempt to skip traffic on our way to Bandung. Bandung is about a couple hours away from Jakarta if the roads are clear. From there the plan was to go to Kawah Putih, White Crater, which was about another 1.5 hours away from Bandung. As usual with Jakarta, there is no voiding traffic and the trip took around …

Good Hood

February 13, 2016

It’s all Good in the Hood, especially if you have great coffee and an even better food menu. This chilled out cafe is in Slipi, not an area of Jakarta where you would expect to find a trendy cafe but you would be glad to. The decor of the cafe is exceptional, you know that there was no expense spared on making the cafe welcoming …

Indo Trip // Transit

February 8, 2016

Happy Chinese New Year to all! Gong Xi Fat Chai! This is our first blog entry for Indo, travelling from Sydney to Jakarta via Singapore. Considering that Jakarta isn’t really a touristy spot and that most of the days will be spent doing family formalities, there won’t be much to shoot. For this reason, the videos and photos will come as episodes rather than days. There were …
