Hi, hello you! I am Firsta. Nice to meet you πŸ™‚

First of, thank you for visiting my blog.

Every story has a beginning. Discover Your IndonesiaΒ is a project I started to share my experiences travelling aroundΒ Indonesia. As the site became popular and more and more people visited I started to receive lots of emails asking forΒ travel plans and personal tips. That’s when I started the travel consultancy business, first in Yogya, then in East Java and now in a lot of different spots around the country.

Yet even though the site has grown the aims are still the same.Β There’s a team of us now, but we still share the same useful travel tips and stories for travellers exploring the country. We’re not planning on changing.

Why is it Discover Your Indonesia and not Discover my Indonesia?

Because it is not mine only, it is also yours πŸ™‚ it is ours. I am saying this not only for all Indonesians’, but also for the lovely foreigners out there that might have a plan to travel to Indonesia or have already travelled to Indonesia (hopefully not only Bali);

Thank you for putting Indonesia on your travel list. This is your Indonesia too, so enjoy this blog as your travel reference from a local perspective. Let’s explore and discover Indonesia.
