We’ve hit double digits… day 10. Itchy feet, however, compel us to hop on a plane for Jogjakarta (Jogja, for short – jogja’s on us!).
The Island of Java is right next door to Bali, and different in so many ways. The jewel of Jogja, aside from the draw of someplace a bit different after nine days, was the twin UNESCO sites of Borobudur and Prambanan. If you watched the clip from a few days ago, from the movie Baraka, you caught a glimpse of Borobudur, a Buddhist Temple with its belled shaped stupas. It’s Indonesia’s single most popular tourist draw, and it was on our list.
But first, as often the case with us before a big event, food. In this case, an 22 course sample of Javanese cuisine.
We have so far travelled…
- 14 638 km Air (544 km today, Denpassar to Jogjakarta)
- 340 km driving (19 km today)
- 59.9 km walking (2.1 km today)
