Workshop fish curry in Batak style

During our visit to Toba lake we stayed on Samosir island. The rest of our group was out on a walk but we wanted to do something different, so what else than food right? I had been going through a leaflet in our hotelroom that morning and saw they did culinary workshop. Checked with Tom and we decided this was…

Sumatra : I’m back!

Yessss, we’re back!! For those that didn’t even notice we were gone… We arrived yesterday from a almost four week trip to Sumatra. And it was amazing… Hot, tiring, mosquito-rich but also relaxing, beautiful, impressive and fun… 😉 Yesterday I downloaded the 2000 photos on my computer and still need to edit and go through them but here is already…

Travel: Komodo – Indonesia

One of the highlights of our trip to Indonesia in 2009 was the two day boattrip to the Komodo Islands. Everyone (I think?) has heard of the worldfamous Komodo dragons and how dangerous these prehistoric creatures are. If you don’t know how a Komodo dragon looks than check out the little youtube film (from national Geographic) which shows you a…

Tetebatu – Lombok, Indonesia

Thinking back on our trip around the Sunda islands I think the place that has made the biggest impression was definitely Tetebatu. Possibly not because I was feeling so well at that time…. We had booked our trip during Ramedan. Not really realizing this when we planned and apart from a few stores closing earlier or not opening at all…

Feeling hot, hot, hot

Wow… How hot can it get? We are now in Riung a little village situated by the sea (but without a beach) and it is incredibly hot here. So hot in fact that I am longing for cold rainy days in Holland!! Imagine that! Since arriving here we’ve been to beautiful mountainareas where the temperatures are a little cooler and…

On Sumbawa

I think I can safely say that yesterday we officially had the worst meal in the world! After a trip by bus and local ferry we arrived on the island of Sumbawa. The island here is much drier then Lombok and tourism is sort of not really existing, so that always tends to create problems for our spoilt western stomachs…:)…

Tetebatu

I first have to apologize for the crappy phone pictures (now replaced!!). It’s the only way I can post here as they have never heard of internet cafe’s in this area, so I have to do with my phone. And frankly; that means I am now writing a post to you overlooking a gorgeous ricefield and sitting on the veranda…

Gili Menno

After a very long trip (it was a total of 25 hours to get to Indonesia including the stopover in Singapore) we arrived yesterday in the evening in Lombok where our first overnight stay would be. Just one night as today we would be heading further to the lovely sandy beaches of the Gili’s islands. We could actually sleep late…
