I wonder if someone with Indonesia experience might review my intineary, such as it is at the stage of the planning process, and make whatever suggestions, recommendations, or snide comments as might be deemed appropriate. Thanks.
I apologize for not knowing some place names.
I had been thinking about North Sumatra but given: 1) The fact that it will probably rain a lot this time of year and 2) The fact that the extreme north, where I wanted to go, is quite roundly discouraged on account of all the beheadings and such, I have settled on Java instead. I have been to Bali and Lombok and loved them both but am eager to see more of the country so I will land in Jakarta instead, bus up into the mountains for an evening stay at the “lazy buffalo! wack em in the testicle” place before heading down to the coast to the “almost bali” place. If I am feeling particularly rambunctious I may head further down all the way to Bali where if it is possible may catch a boat or plane to Sulaweisi. From Sulaweisi I will get back to Jakarta one way or another.
I have two weeks to accomplish such.
