Indonesia: 2 week itinerary in Bali

by

The next part of our trip to Indonesia takes us to the island of the gods, the one everyone talks about: Bali! The name alone evokes rice fields, volcanic beaches, sunsets on the sea and scooter rides among palm trees… And in reality, Bali is all this at the same time with the incredible hospitality of the Balinese, the discovery of the Hindu culture and ceremonies and the promise of an unforgettable trip! In short, I take you to discover an island that is not very big but rich in landscapes and activities to do. I stayed there for more than 3 weeks and I didn’t see the time passing. I present you our 2 weeks itinerary in Bali!

Meeting the Indigenous Sasak in Lombok, Indonesia

by

The Sasak are the largest ethnic group on the island of Lombok, Indonesia. About 80% of the inhabitants of Lombok are Sasak and this is also the name given to the local language spoken on the island. The Sasak live mainly in the rural areas of Lombok and work in agriculture and fishing but also in the handicrafts inherited from their ancestors. We spent two days in the Tetebatu region, in the centre of Lombok, where we stayed with a Sasak family. A beautiful green area in the middle of rice fields and at the foot of the Rinjani volcano, where the immersion in the local life and in the Sasak culture makes the trip even more beautiful!

Indonesia: 2 days and 1 night on the Rinjani in Lombok

by

Mount Rinjani is the second largest volcano in Indonesia. Its summit is more than 3700 meters high! It is located on the island of Lombok where we spent 10 days. There are several routes to reach it and enjoy a breathtaking view of the volcano’s crater and the surrounding area. We had an extraordinary experience with a 2 days and one night trek, spending a night in a tent on the crater of the volcano and climbing in the middle of the night to enjoy the sunrise at 3126m, on the Second Summit. In this blog post, I’m telling you all about this crazy but also intense adventure that will be engraved forever in our memories…

Indonesia: 10 days in Lombok

by

We started our trip in Indonesia with the island of Lombok. Lombok is located to the east of Bali and remains a much more unspoilt island than its neighbour, and is known as the “Bali of old”. It is the ideal destination for backpackers and travellers looking to get off the beaten track. This is what motivated us to go there… But besides the beautiful landscapes and the paradisiacal beaches, it is also the kindness of the inhabitants and their welcome that seduced us! I take you to discover our 10 days itinerary in Lombok between snorkeling among turtles, discovering the Sasak culture and climbing the second highest volcano in Indonesia, the Rinjani, for an unforgettable stay!
