Chance Encounters of the Indonesian Kind

We travel from Solo to Blitar by bus while on our 14 day ‘Journey Across Java’ tour. The bus is held up by a colourful street parade in a village as part of the Indonesian Independence Day celebrations. It is Festival Time and our group joins in the fun.

Some of the best travel experiences are of the unexpected kind and this was one of the many highlights of our trip (thanks to our guide Eddy Suryawan for the photos). The Indonesian people are always so welcoming and as you can see there are lots of happy smiles on the faces of all concerned
