Stretched across the Equator, Indonesia is a year round destination for beach getaways. The famous island of Bali gets a lot of deserved attention, with floods of tourists lining its beaches and packing its hotels. But Indonesia is a nation of over 17,000 islands, and with 8,000 of those occupied there’s so much more to discover.
And Indonesia wants you to see this. Recently, the Indonesian government announced a ‘10 new Balis’ campaign to encourage tourism outside of the island hotspot.
Deserted beaches, waterfalls, cliffs and coral reefs are seemingly endless is this diverse and enigmatic country. We’ve done a little look into five islands to get that adventure started.
印度尼西亚跨越赤道，全年都是海岛游的度假胜地。 著名的巴厘岛得到了很多应有的关注，众多的海滩吸引了大量的游客，酒店的住房被排的满满的。 但印度尼西亚是一个拥有17,000多个岛屿的国家，其中8000多个岛屿居住着人类。
It was not even 10 years ago when I went on my last BIG European adventure with friends and family. And, I have a photo album, from Target, with over 400 photos printed in it, to showcase the three month vacay.
If I think about how many trips I’ve been on since my hard copy photo album has made an appearance, there are more than I can count on both hands. But, where are my photos?
Some on CD (yes, that’s right, CD), some on USB, some on my Mum’s old 1999 Dell laptop, my portable hard drive, my friends camera roll, my camera roll, the cloud, Facebook, Instagram, in my trash to create more room. Anyway, you get the gist.
Personally, I am not going to collate or print all the pics I have taken over the last 10 years in trips. It just won’t happen. Those memories are now tucked away in my very young mind. But, this whole thought made me curious to look at what’s out there nowadays to capture and store one’s travel experiences and memories – neatly and in one central place.
Here’s what we found.
