    Day 2: In and around Kuta in Bali, Indonesia

    We woke up pretty late in our beautiful hotel room in Kuta area in Bali, Indonesia. This is one thing I found amazing about Bali; really awesome hotels at a very low price! No wonder this is a honeymoon destination for many, I thought. Since we got up late, going far from day trips was […]

    The day started in the taxi on our way to Mt.Bromo, an active volcano in Indonesia which is just a 3hr drive from Surabaya. The road was a little bumpy, much like the Indian roads but was not bad though. I had a good sleep in the taxi till the time we stopped. It was […]

    Day 11: The ‘foreigner’ tag in Indonesia

    The day started at the airport waiting in a queue for our visa on arrival. Again, as in Thailand, we got the visa stamped in a few minutes.
