Review of the itinerary of the trip to Indonesia: From Indonesia we took the most spectacular landscapes of the entire trip. The orangutans in Tanjung Puting National Park, on a Klotok (open deck boat) along the river for three days. Jogjakarta, Borobudur, Prambanan, and get lost in the alleys.
The Bromo Volcano, an almost lunar and strange, spectacular landscape. Nusa Penida (in Bali) in low season, without almost tourists, was a space of tranquility and rest, previous to know the beaches of Bukit, the temple of Uluwatu, and the hypnotizer Kechak, the dance in which the legend of Ramaiana is represented.
The trip from Flores to Lombok for four days, passing through Komodo National Park, spectacular islands and islets, highlighting Pulau Padar. In Lombok we find a haven of peace in Tetebatu, a village in the centre of the island, surrounded by rice terraces and hidden waterfalls. One of the places where we extended our stay just because it was good. And, the beaches of Kuta, to the south, beautiful and paradisiacal.
Back to Bali, we settled in Ubud, where we had one of the very few disappointments of the trip. Waiting for something quiet, we found something very different. Luckily, with the freedom that the rental motorbike gave us, we were able to discover some corner, like Sidemen, about 30 km away, which left us speechless. But if for Malaysia, we needed four months, for Indonesia, a lifetime!
It would be fair to say that we were in a corner of Kalimantan (in Borneo), some Java, a little Bali, and some places between Flores and Lombok, not counting the bits of the latter. Counting that we did not set foot in Sumatra, nor the remaining 16994 islands… I do not know if it is very fair to say that we have been in Indonesia.
