You might think that a 12-hour flight to a country far, far away on an exotic continent would scare people away. But the opportunity to join an organized group travel through Indonesia made me forget all my worries and I hopped right onto the plane. It turned out to be quite enjoyable, thanks to the incredibly nice and welcoming flight attendants on my flight from Frankfurt to Indonesia. Every hour passing by, my anticipation towards my journey increased and when I finally landed, I almost couldn’t take it anymore.
After a short stopover in Singapore and a first contact with our nice Studiosus tour guide we continued on with Silk Air to Medan. At the very beginning I was already totally impressed by the beautiful surroundings. I couldn’t yet imagine that this was later topped by a delicious dinner. My Indonesian adventure started right from the beginning like I always dreamed. With the very first meal I had in Indonesia already being this delicious, you might imagine what awaited me on my journey. Learning more about Islamic culture in the big mosque of Medan, visiting traditional native Indonesian villages – enjoying a cooling and refreshing bath at the beautiful Tobs lake in the afternoon, and strolling across a traditional fruit market. A lot of things to do in just two days, isn’t it?
