When traveling through Indonesia a stop in Bali is often part of the itinerary. If you zoom in a bit, you will notice three comparatively small islands in the east of Bali – Nusa Ceningan, Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Penida. The second biggest of the three is Nusa Lembongan, an eight square kilometres small island, which inhabits approximately 5,000 people. Why this tiny island surprised us in a very positive way and what you need to know before planning your trip to Nusa Lembongan will be discussed in this article. Find out everything you need to know in our Nusa Lembongan Guide!
I am writing this post while flying to Oaxaca via Mexico City. After leaving the Pacific coast we are now heading onwards into the mountains. Here we will see some, I guess, great colonial towns and impressive landscapes. All that’s great but I honestly miss Puerto Escondido already. The article surfing in Puerto Escondido will give you some tips in order to make the best of your trip.
We arrived in Myanmar without a lot of expectations. We didn’t read a lot as we wanted to get an own, genuine picture. We just saw a couple of great pictures of hot air balloons over Bagan. Now, after we spent 12 days in Myanmar we can tell – Myanmar is so much more than that. Watching sunrises on mountains, trying to communicate with lovely locals and chasing the balloons in Bagan. The following article will go beyond what we saw and showcases a great Myanmar Travel Route.
The following article is written by Sri Lankan surfer Lahiru who quitted his job in a bank to open a surf hostel and follow his passion. In this post, he shares some valuable information on Surfing in Sri Lanka. As a local, surf teacher and passionate surfer he exactly knows what’s important for good surf in the Indian Ocean. Friends of ours met him during their world trip and recommended Weligama as a great place to chill and surf. During our stay, we had our first real surf experiences at the surf spot Lazy Left.
The country of Maya ruins, Mezcal and spicy Tacos is incredible. We ate delicious tacos stuffed with fresh avocado, surfed the waves in Puerto Escondido and explored the country with its spanish-speaking, indigenous inhabitants while Backpacking in Mexico.
One of the highlights of our trip through Indonesia certainly was the Kelimutu National Park on Flores. In the middle of beautiful nature you will find three very different crater lakes, with a couple of legends to it.
Flores. The name of an island we haven’t heard before our three months trip through Indonesia. A comparatively small number of tourists make it further east than Bali or Lombok, so the island of Flores stayed relatively untouched. The island, however, gets increasingly better known for its up to three-meter long inhabitants, the Komodo Dragons. But it has so much more to offer than just these poisonous lizards. In the following article, you will find out our highlights on Flores Indonesia and why Flores is worth visiting not just once. Unknown Flores, here we come!
As a landlocked surfer in Germany you always think about Where do I have the next chance to jump in the water?. Sometimes I also tend to think first of far and expensive destinations. Mostly that’s not necessary, though. If you are ok with wearing a wetsuit, some world-class surf spots are in driving distance. Here we go – Surfing in North Spain!
We came because of world-class, warm water waves but didn’t expect the island to be that unique. The little-known island Simeulue on the north-west coast of Sumatra and its distinctive water buffalos feel like traveling in time, perhaps even to a different planet. In the following article, I will share my thoughts and tips of our first stop in our three months’ trip through Indonesia. Surf in North Sumatra – right on!
