Indonesian Adventure

The summer has gone now, but the memories will stay put, especially when I have such a beautiful array of photographs.

I thought it would be a nice to share some of the photos from my summer with you.

My friend Ben and I took a trip out to Indonesia. We flew in to Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia and spent a few days in the city.

I'd like to say we spent the days walking the streets, lapping up the smells of different spices from the street foods and taking advantage of the sights. But instead, we spent an incredibly large amount of time on the roof top bar of our hotel, people watching from above and tasting every single cocktail on the menu.
There was also a lot of time spent in the National Museum of Indonesia, where Ben had to pull several happy poses to have his picture taken with Indonesian children that had traveled in to the city from little villages far away on school trips!

After missing our flight that took us to the closest airport to Mount Bromo (which we were going to climb), we headed down to Bali early, and that's when the fun began.

Everywhere you turn there is something to see, do and smell.

We explored beaches, spread our toes out on the sand and dipped them in to the beautiful blue sea.

Spoke to locals, walked for miles upon miles along the sand until we reached shops full of beautiful garments of clothing, locally made coffees and then there was the obscene amount of tat that just added to excitement of it all.

I'm not sure I need to write anymore. The pictures below scream how beautiful Bali & Lombok are and are both places that are truly worth a visit.

Note: If you are looking for somewhere to stay in Lombok, I would HIGHLY recommend The Lombok Lodge, if you check it out on trip advisor the reviews say it all. 

What did you do this summer? Are you pleased that Autumn/Winter is setting in? I love leaving work when the nights draw to a close so I can skip home and get my fluffy socks on!

p.s - I will miss my summer glow, until next time sunshine!
