Jogjakarta

The first stop on the mother/daughter tour (after a few days in Jakarta for Mum to attend my classes and see my life here) was Jogjakarta – a city in Mid-Java. Everytime I ask my students ‘where should I definitely visit?’, Jogja is always up there.

It was a much more laid back place than Jakarta – just what the doctor ordered.

The hotel was amazing and we spend A LOT of time lounging next to the pool, interspersed with some shopping and exploring.

We visited the Sultan’s palace and saw some traditional Indonesian dance….

And made the trek to Borobudur, which was amazing. Watching the sunrise there with my Mum was incredible – seriously a once in a lifetime experience.

Jogja was fun – a nice change of pace from life in Jakarta – but it was time to leave before we knew it.

Next stop, Lombok!
