W herever I travel, spending time at sea immediately makes me feel relaxed. But the feeling of calmness did not last long and soon new adventures were calling us. So we headed to the mountains in Bandung, West Java. We traveled alongside tea plantations and enormous rice fields. Indonesia is just so amazingly
diverse that it sometimes felt like travelling trough many different countries at once. The area of Kawa-Putih brought back memories from my trip to Island – it was so windy and rainy and overall cold but the turquoise water was shining bright and burning hot. Due to the mist everywhere, taking pictures became a real challenge. We had to wait a long time until the fog faded and revealed the amazing landscape.
Why is everybody only visiting Bali when you can discover everything else Indonesia has to offer?
After a two-hour drive trough picturesque tea plantations, we found out that the street heading to the waterfall Citambur was still under construction. So we had to leave the car behind but it turned out that it was our lucky day and two young guys offered to take to the waterfall on their mopeds. Taking a jerking ride through a hilly and so humid jungle was pretty adventurous. After about one hour we finally arrived at the waterfall. It was so cold and rainy and the fog was hanging in the trees – it could not have been any better!
Back in Java we decided to take a day trip to explore the volcano Tankuban Perahu that rises about 30 kilometers outside of Bandung. After all those amazing experiences I just had one question: Why is everybody only visiting Bali when you can discover everything else Indonesia has to offer? Just take a look and admire this incredible volcanic crater hiding in the mist! This untouched nature you only find far away from touristic spots.
