Indonesia

Alfred Russel Wallace, the famous British Naturalist, described the island of Java in 1861 as

“Taking it as a whole, and surveying it from every point of view, Java is probably the very finest and most interesting tropical island in the world.” (Wallace, 1869)

    Great blog, keep up the good work! Did you get a chance to visit Sulawesi? The only reason I’ve been there is because my parents are from there. I’m kind of jealous you’ve been to all these wonderful countries but for now I’m happy travelling by use of guidebooks and Wikipedia, hahaha.

      I sure have been to Sulawesi, I think I’ve already written about the tongkanan (I’m not 100% sure if I have spelled that correctly) in Tana Toraja, Central Sulawesi.

      I’ve also been trekking there, observed a traditional funeral, visited a local market been white water rafting and explored around Makassar. (But I have not yet posted about that)

      I have not yet been up further, I plan one day to spend some time in Manado, I hear it is really beautiful, has some great diving and I love the spicey food!

      No need to be jealous, explore Indonesia to start with, that alone could take half a life time. And actually, the first time I traveled overseas was when I was a 23 year old University student.

      • Lukman says:

        Sorry Pak Liam I see the post now, sorry hahaha. I never got to explore Tana Toraja, but I know Makassar and Sengkang quite well. Sadly the only notable experience I ever had was going to a hillside graveyard. I was apologising to every grave I had to step on because I couldn’t of gotten to my grandmothers’ grave which was near the top without doing so. Despite being there a few times I sadly feel no connection with the place, though maybe there’s something in my blood that will awaken its’ yearn for the home of my ancestors later in life? 🙂 Keep travelling and stay safe!

      • Pak Liam says:

        ok, but even that is a cool story, where are you now?

      • Pak Liam says:

        ok. I’ve been to Perth just the once, it’s a really nice city, pity it is so far away from everywhere else. haha

      • Lukman says:

        Tell me about it, I’ve tried escaping twice! Once I moved to Melbourne for 7 months then tried my luck in Sydney, both failures! Seems like all the opportunities I’ve had are here, maybe I’m meant to stay here. It’s a great city with lot’s of changes but somehow I need more. 🙂 So you are in Jakarta at the moment?

      • Pak Liam says:

        Yep, I grew up in Melbourne, but left 15 years ago. I’ve spent the last 6 years in Jakarta, Indonesia, and apart from the macet, totally love the place!

      • Lukman says:

        I love Melbourne, miss it to bits but just no job opportunities! Hahaha ngak suka jalan macet? Hahaha I went to Jakarta when I was a kid, perhaps I should visit soon. Always wanted to go to Taman Mini. Anyways keep posting stuff about your travels and maybe Indonesia, I’ll surely follow:)

      • Pak Liam says:

        Pasti dong, gak suki jl macet ! Taman Mini, hey, it’s ok, but it’s not that great!

      • Lukman says:

        Hahaha! Damn my childhood dreams down the drain! Saya senang kau suka tinggal di Indonesia! 🙂

      • Pak Liam says:

        Gue suka banyet! 😉

        Hey, you inspired me to get moving and write another Sulawesi post, https://alwaysrestlessfeet.wordpress.com/2012/06/23/white-water-rafting-in-sulawesi/ 🙂

      • Lukman says:

        Asyik! Hebat! 😀 Awesome, I’ll check it out!

      • Pak Liam says:

        Hey, didnt you say you were in Perth, that makes it about 3 or 4.00am…. whatya blogging at this time for ? hehehe

      • Lukman says:

        I accidentally slept all afternoon, way over than I should of so I’m not sleepy! The parents taught us to do afternoon naps, I guess a custom they brought over from Ina. It’s 1.49 a.m.! 🙂 Saya kelelawar!

      • Pak Liam says:

        oh ok, same time zone as Jakarta then. 🙂

      • Lukman says:

        I think one hour ahead, same time zone as Bali and Sulawesi. But what’s an hour difference matter XD 🙂

  2. Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility
    issues. When I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that,
    awesome blog!
