OK, Jakarta is a huge, unfathomable city, difficult to negotiate with no real central focus and nightmarish traffic. We randomly picked the Bangka via Hostelbookers and turned up late in the evening after a negotiating a dystopian traffic jam from the airport. What a relief to find the B&B was more than we could have hoped for. A beautiful house in a quiet leafy suburb, close to the expat zone but a million miles from the chaos. The staff, Rico and Rini, are incredibly friendly and helpful and the owner, Mr Rama is The Man. Rooms are quiet, cool and comfortable, the place has good wifi and places to relax and the complimentary breakfast is well laid out every morning. Highlight of our four day stay was the personal guided tour by Rama. He knows and loves his city, speaks perfect English and took us around the place in an air-coned car with a good driver. We went everywhere, the best bit being the old docks where we went on board a big wooden trading schooner that was loading stuff for Sulwesi, quite the experience. We left Jakarta with a new. improved opinion of the place and at least three new friends. Hope to return one day. Top place.

I really enjoyed talking with his eldest 11-year old boy, Davy, who briefed Jed and I on his plans to pick up girls. Davy - So, how many girlfriends do you have, Jed? Me - about three. Davy- THREE!?!

... good snacks we hadn't seen or heard of before! We're staying at Ezta's house this weekend, the lady we met in Lombok and stayed with for a few nights. We had to get a taxi to Ezta's office, which took ages because the traffic in Jakarta is really bad and as always the taxi driver didn't really know where he was going... What a surprise! Ezta then drove us back to her house, which is located in a really nice area of Jakarta. She shares a ...
Finally, a holiday this year! After a very busy 2013, this year has a rather late start . But finally, I am under way, once again with my beloved Michelle.
The destination we are visiting is called Belitung Island. Part of Bangka Belitung Province, this island's tourism potential remains unknown, even to many Indonesian. Just 7 years ago, Belitung was still wild and rugged. ...
... a standard experience so far - not much to write home about really. ... except the toilet (of all places) deserves a special mention. I walked in as the sun was setting, illuminating the loo with warm shades of amber and pink, and was blown away by the view before me. There's something surreal about doing your ablutions 36,000 feet in the air, mooning the clouds and ...
... had been. I was able to find a few places where I could lie out over some benches. I ended up having to changes spots a few times throughout the night however to avoid getting bitten to death by lots of small annoying bugs of some kind.
Once it was late enough for the airport to start opening up properly I set about working out how to get to Jakarta's city centre. None of the airport staff seemed to speak very good english unfortunately and ...
