I have to admit that when Dan and I were planning our time in Indonesia, at the end of our summer traveling Asia, we both felt… lackluster.
After all the traveling we’ve done the past two years, the last thing I wanted to do was end in Bali: a place that I feared would be an over-touristy island swarming with instagrammers. (Not to slam instagram – I do enjoy the app! – but I feel that a lot of beautiful places have been reduced to inauthentic photo-spots and nothing more).
While looking for more “off the beaten path” places to visit in Indonesia, I discovered this northern-most island, famous as being one of the last two places in the world where you can see wild orangutans.
Count me in. Flight booked.
What happened next was a beautiful week of sweaty jungle treks, nightly guitar jams, and ten magnificent orangutan sightings.
