The sun never shines in Jakarta

A travel blog entry by lucieandiuri


We weighed our options to come to Jakarta. We were going to continue south but the prospect of so many long hours in a Sumatran bus wasn't appealing. There was one more sight I had wished to see here but there was also a compromise to make so we took a flight to Jakarta.

So we took a gamble and ...

White water rafting in Jakarta

Seoul to Jakarta - A Little Tired

A travel blog entry by mdemmons

One of the things I was looking forward to was practicing my Indonesian. ...
