Where I stayed
It's that time of year again for me to embark on a new adventure. This summer I'm traveling through Indonesia for 7 weeks. Because of the incredible response I received from my previous two blogs, I've decided to continue the tradition in sharing my thoughts, experiences, and pictures with you here.
I dropped Nisha off at her summer home in East Rogers Park, Chicago this afternoon where she will be vacationing with her summer family :) Tomorrow I leave for Florida to visit my parents, brother, sister-in-law, and 2 year old nephew (woohoo!). Then I'm back in Chicago for a couple of days then I'm off to Indonesia!!
Why Indonesia? They have strong culture and traditions, and from what I've heard extremely friendly people, amazing diving, and really good food!
Indonesia also has the largest Muslim population in the world. I'm not a religious person, but I am fascinated by religion and spirituality. I spent a summer in Egypt and found the Islamic culture to be extremely challenging for me as a woman by forcing me to analyze my beliefs on gender equality. I guess I'm looking for a challenge again.
Please feel free to email me any questions, comments, complaints, and suggestions you may have regarding my blog or my travels. I look forward to hearing from you over the summer!
