  • About theo1006:

    I moved to TP from VT, where my specialization was Indonesia because I lived and worked in Indonesia for 26 years. At the moment I am adding to the Indonesia guide while waiting for Peter to finish the Board facility. Then I want to write from personal experience how Indonesia and tourism in Indonesia has changed in 50 years.

Indonesia

I am Dutch, but I have lived 26 of my now 77 years in Indonesia. Presently with my wife I settled in Spain. In retirement we re-visited Bali (which I have known since 1969 when Bali was still untouched by mass tourism) and explored Aceh, Sumbawa, Flores, Timor (including Timor-Leste) and West-Kalimantan. Our interests are history, culture and unspoiled nature. I am open to any questions, if your travelling style is off-the-beaten path.

Java

I am Dutch, but I have lived 26 of my now 75 years in Java. Presently with my wife I settled in Spain. As we lived and worked there, we know many places in Java that your typical mass tourist passes by. Our interests are history, culture and unspoiled nature. I am open to any questions, if your travelling style is off-the-beaten path.
