This is my biggest trip not only in Indonesia but for the whole year of 2016. My month-long adventure in this beautiful country was spread over three separate trips that happened rather unexpectedly & in excellent timing.

It started with a 2-week #TripofWonders media tour organized by Indonesia’s Ministry of Tourism that brought me and over 30 top digital influencers to Jakarta, Bandung, Yogyakarta, Lombok, the Komodo Islands & Bali. After that tour, I was off to Singapore with my family. We decided to go on a day trip to Batam Island, which was just a one-hour ferry ride away. The final 2-week trip in Bali & Lombok was one that I had already planned several months ago. On my own, I went trekking to Mount Rinjani and Mount Ijen (volcanoes), explored more of Bali, and traveled with new found friends to nearby Nusa Penida Island.
