A Behind the Scenes Look at Making Gudeg in Yogyakarta

The heat from the flames was almost unbearable, the lack of air circulation stifling. A surprisingly tall, young, shirtless man in flip-flops entered the room. Male or female, it was hard not to notice his abs, covered in sweat, and seemingly carved from stone. He deposited a shovel full of red-hot coals underneath one of the many large cooking pots, without a word, and left the room again.

Bali - A fantastic place for relaxation

Up Close with the Dragons

Komodo National Park is officially the 'New 7 Wonders of Nature'. The pristine beaches and crystal clear waters teeming with an�abundance of colourful marine life top the list of my favourite snorkeling sites anytime. Not to forget the world's largest lizards roaming on the islands - Komodo Dragons! The near-extinct species can only be found at Komodo National Park that consists of three main islands: Komodo, Rinca and Padar. Komodo island We flew from Bali...
