Get a bike and go
I knew I'd enjoy this post from the the inclusion in the title of "sojourn." It's a bit like being on the lam, but more respectable. As ever, I will travel with you vicariously. Happy hunting.
If you're looking for someone to tag along and do some cooking and cleaning.... :-)
I’m so jealous! What a fab trip. I travelled solo in Java, including some southern beaches, many years ago. I had a wonderful time, and it sounds as if some of it hasn’t changed much.
Fabulous part of the world. I'm in Sumatra at present and it too is always brilliant. Re tourists: here, there are none. Not unusual.......but the tragedy is that there IS so much to see here.
