Final thoughts on Indonesia (2019)

We’ve moved from Indonesia to Thailand, so that means it is time for final thoughts on Indonesia.  Although, once again, our final thoughts on Indonesia are limited by the fact that we only stayed in Bali (Nusa Dua and Legian) … Continue reading

Final Thoughts on Vietnam (2019)
