this Indonesia site
Hi. Selamat datang
(welcome) to the website. Its aim is to give you all the
information you need on Indonesia - whether you are interested in travel
or just want to find something out about the country.
Nick Langston-Able and since 1998 I have travelled extensively around
Indonesia. My motivations to do this was my love of south-east
Asia (I have done a reasonable amount of backpacking around Malaysia and
Thailand), my desire to see and climb volcanoes, and the dubious wish to
see how a country copes with the political and economic turmoil that
Indonesia has experienced over the last few years.
first visit was at the height of the troubles that led to the
fall of President Suharto; how risky or stupid this journey was is
debatable but I left unscathed and have returned to other parts of the
archipelago in the years since.
My first trip, however,
was probably the most interesting due to the conditions in Indonesia,
the places I saw and my own state of mind. It resulted in me
leaving my job and writing a book on my experiences entitled 'Playing
with Fire', excerpts of which are located across the site. This
has now been published so feel free to contact me for more details or go
direct to www.adventures-in-indomnesia.co.uk
This site will continue
evolving but I hope that there is enough information to be of some help
and I'm always happy to receive comments and questions from anyone who
has an interest in what I regard as one of the most incredibly beautiful
(albeit chaotic) countries in the world.

apologise for his constant scurrying - he's very inquisitive.
