Yogyakarta is pronounced Jogjakarta, and that's how it's spelled in Indonesia.  I have no idea why we spell it with a Y.  It's also the cultural capital of Java, and an excellent jumping off point for Borobudur.  Our excursions in Yogya ...

One day, the usually empty beaches were full of locals from Aceh on a day trip. It was fun to watch everyone have such a great time, but it was also interesting to see women in traditional Muslim clothing playing in the water. As Westerners, we ...

I was up early and away from Kuta at 6am, quite glad to be leaving under the circumstances. It'd take almost 12 hours to get to Gili Trawangan so I thought it best to start the day off by sleeping in the bus as best I could. That was until was rounded a ...
