Last night I got an email from a couchsurfer who was in Bali and about to travel to Java. He basically asked me if I wanted to travel with him. So this morning I sent him my number and we spoke and agreed to meet up in the afternoon for a drink and to see what we thought of each other.
Donnie picked me and David up from outside McDonalds and we drove further and picked up another 2 guys, before heading to the South coast to watch the sunset. We came to a very smart place that cost 100,000 to get in (although the other guy Glen paid us in and bought us a very expensive drink - me and Dave that is! as we were completely unprepared for this.)
Donnie is basically a pop starhttp://www.reverbnation.com/donnieandthetroy, and so are his 2 younger brothers, one who is lead singer in Supernova (who supported Keane on a recent tour) and the other is lead singer in the band Nidja (who had a track in the Heroes soundtrack). Donnie and The Troy will be coming to Europe this year to promote their band, and I will be spending the next 2 weeks travelling with him through Java, also with David who has also decided to come, and we have some WAY cool things on the plan as it seems that Donnie is rather well connected...We will just have to see how the time pans out really before I let you in on the secrets!
Pics to come!....
