Indonesia: Yogyakarta, The Perfect Place To Visit

I can’t believe it’s been almost a whole year since we visited beautiful Bali. It was my first visit to Indonesia; however, I know it certainly won’t be my last. Everything about Indonesia made me fall in love with it – the history, the culture, the people and definitely the…

Perfect Places to Propose Around the World

2015 Travel Round Up

Bali: Alas Kedaton Monkey Forest, Tabanan
