Indonesia - Java, Bali, Papua

This was a long, 33 day, varied and extraordinary trip through Java, Bali and Papua. We had a fantastic time and have a head full of memories and experiences, which will take us a while to sort out. Some of our highlights include: • Having Borobudur all to ourselves at sunset (there was just us and 4 security men in the whole temple) and being able to enjoy the temple in silence; to get a World Heritage site all to yourself is rather special • Cycling through the night to the sunrise hill at Borobudur as ash fell from the Merapi volcano; we arrived with a light covering of white ash over our clothes • Dawn at Bromo had superb landscape albeit with more tourists • Seeing the sulphur miners at Ijen • Seeing Malang through the eyes of a local on a well-designed tour of the city • Cycling and walking through the rice fields of Bali • Being with the Dani tribe in Papua and learning a small amount about their well-ordered and complex society • Seeing the Bali Hindu festival of Kuningan and all the villagers carrying large offerings to all the temples • Learning to cook in a family home and being introduced to new ingredients • Seeing birds of paradise displaying deep in the forests of Papua
