I can't even imagine how many people would be booking their flights to Bali once travel restrictions are lifted but I think I will stick close to home – and hop on a plane to Yogyakarta. Sometimes I get really emotional thinking about Indonesia because my family is still there and this stay-home-no-travel period has made me realise that maybe I am not dead inside after all. I also really miss nasi goreng and will go all out here to say Indonesian nasi goreng is the best fried rice there is.
But mostly, I miss being around people and every time I go to Indonesia, I feel so fuzzy from how nice everyone is (especially after I switch to Bahasa). Once I get there, I'll eat nasi goreng every day, shop for batik directly from the makers, have multiple breakfasts daily, eat alfresco aka sitting by the streets and snacking, ride on motorbikes because it's the best feeling, go hiking and maybe climb a mountain.
