As I pressed "publish" on my last post, I turned to Martijn and said: "I'm actually not feeling too great." He told me that I was probably tired and stressing a bit about having to climb to the Ijen crater and suggested I slept for half an hour before we would be picked up. Sleeping didn't seem to help and whether it was exhaustion, nerves or a dodgy lunch, I spent most of the hour long bumpy as hell drive up the mountain trying to figure out a way to do an ...

After 1 hour drive we arrived at the bottom of the volcano from where we would start a 1h climb to the crater. Because of the Easter ...
... and then carried on. The hike came out of the jungle and onto bare gravel, with no surrounding trees thanks to human induced forest fires. About 30 minutes later, we made it onto the edge of the crater... so all in all the hike took us about 2 hours. It was pretty difficult, but very rewarding when we got to the top. It was pretty cloudy, so we couldn't see much in terms of the surrounding landscape, but the view down into the crater was incredible. When the steam cleared, the ...
