For one month I travelled Indonesia. Putting this travel montage together was tough, I had a lot of footage. We swam with Manta Rays, saw Komodo Dragons, and Orangutans, went scuba diving at some beautiful coral reefs, and explored the cracks of Bali. There was too much to see. I did a few vlogs of my trip, but wanted to make one big travel video.
For most of the trip I was with a group tour called #tripofwonders with the tourism board, then continued backpacking after. One of the most prominent highlights for me was the people, always smiling and a little bit mischievous. I tried to capture some of that in this piece. Also the food was incredible, I am a spicy food FIEND and they ate sambal, a spicy pepper paste with every meal.
Places we checked out:
Bali. Home to Uluwatu Temple, Kecak Dance, Surfing, the USAT Liberty Tulamben Shipwreck, Manta Point and so much more.
Komodo. Where we visited the Islands of Padar and Komodo to see the dragons and the amazing view you saw in the video
Borneo. Also called Kalimantan. Where we hung out with Orangutans, and lived on a boat while we cruised the rivers of Tanjung Puting National Park
Wakatobi. Some of the best SCUBA diving in Indonesia. We did a few dives and also met the Bajo, a community of sea gypsies who never visit land.
Having travelled many places in my life, this country has made it in my top 5. It’s an incredible place, and I highly recommend you visit.
