To Sulawesi?

With two weeks until my departure date and the official beginning of summer (for me), I realize I have completely neglected the pre-India part of my summer - the part that places Ethan and me on a flight to the  island of Java in Indonesia in early July.  Maybe it's because since I was a child, I've been fascinated by travel in India?  Indonesia, as I have been told, can be incredible.

We fly in and out of Jakarta with about three weeks to spare.  The "plan" is to travel overland and by boat from the island of Java to the island of Bali.  I hear that Ubud (on Bali), a town nestled in rice terraces, is dreamy and the cultural center of the archipelago.  Look at these pictures

But there remains Sulawesi (Celebes), which is more obscure, requires a ferry journey, and is very tempting . . . 


  1. Oh, please visit Borobudur for me! I've so been enjoying "following" you on your adventures. Happy and safe travels! And you're right, India is incredible.

  2. Michelle, So, this sounds , but sometimes I feel like I am all templed-out? I think we will do a short stop since it will be on the way to Ubud.
