Gisteravond om 23.00 uur vertrokken wij met twee jeeps richting de Kawan Ijen. Een van de actieve vulkanen, net als de Bromo, op het eiland Java. Leuk om nu wel te weten is dat sommige van deze vulkanen op scherp staan. Totaal 3 in de regio. Maar wij zijn veilig terug. De rit naar de vulkaan duurt twee uur. In ruime jeeps vliegen wij het eerste uur …

We caught the train from Madiun and arrived in Yogja close to midnight. We hadn't a clue where the hostel was only that it wasn't too far from the station, so we got a couple of becaks to take us and found that we were only a few hundred yards away, over the railway tracks! Still, at that time of night maybe it was worth the few rupiah to make sure …

Merapi sunrise, ash, sulphur and lava

A travel blog entry by kandjgonomad


... ash about. Merapi had only recently erupted with the death and destruction of quite a few locals and their dwellings. There is unspoken respect by the locals for Merapi - 'it giveth and it takes away'. There are 3 base camps before reaching the crater and on the second we all stopped.

... organizing and catching up on the blog. The hotel was very nice and plunked in the middle of a busy part of town. It had narrow busy roads, no sidewalks, shops on both sides and the walking was perilous as motos and cars ruled the we didn't venture far. We opted to dine at our hotel and were the only two in the nice dining room with about 4 young male servers at our ...

Expensive temples and super cheap clothes!

A travel blog entry by laulauandmont


After a very early (3am) start, we arrived in Yogyakarta around 6am. We were picked up from the airport and headed straight out to see the two most famous temples in this area. We only had two days here, so we thought it was best to make the most of the early start and get the temples done today, so that we could get them out of the way and spend the full day the next day exploring the city.

The first temple we went to was the Buddhist temple ...

    An amazing place to relax for a few days with wonderfully unusual decor; each room has a different mural. Only a few minutes from the railway station and a short walk to the centre of town. Highly recommended.
