    Discovering the neighborhood

    October 28, 2017 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    No need to go to Jakarta to discover new things... there is plenty to see in BSD just a short bike ride away! Finally had my bike repaired (bought some lights too and will be safer now on the street at night) and then discovered a new coffee shop in my neighborhood. Tried out like juice, iced coffee mocha and a desert I had never tried before but found to be delicious. Coffee ice on green jelly topped with jack fruit. Sounds weird but tasted like heaven 😋Read more

    Trying out the Intro Jazz Bistro

    October 30, 2017 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Tried out another café today - the Intro Jazz Bistro and Café. They serve delicious food, good coffee and decent mocktails in a very laid back and cosy atmosphere. I'll definitely come back 😊

    The first 6 months...

    February 3, 2018 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    So, today, I've been in BSD, Indonesia, for exactly 6 months and I can say that I've finished settling in. My house is furnished (photos nr. 4 and 5), my container arrived 3 months ago (photo nr. 3), I've travelled to Sulawesi (nr. 2 and 8) and Bali (nr. 9 and 10). I'm enjoying every minute of the good weather (nr. 1), have tried many kinds of food and drinks (nr. 7). Live here is comfortable and easy going. Working is fun as students are polite and hard-working, the school ground is amazing and my colleages motivated and helpful. I've "survived" the first vulcano eruption and earthquakes, have shared my house with lizards, cockroaches, a rat, a scorpion and hundreds of mosqitoes. I know how to get around BSD and Jakarta, have made the first friends outside of school, went out partying and have gotten a tast of local life here. There are so many experiences ahead and I can't wait! Applying at the German School of Jakarta and moving to Indonesia has certainly been one of the best decisions I've ever taken. Let's see where life is leading me :-)Read more
