Part 28: Almaty to Indonesia

In general, motorbikes and a lot of salt water is not a good combi so I packed my Honda Cub in a wooden box and sent her home.
Flying from Almaty to Indonesia, wich was a bit weird after being on the bike for such a long time.
A new adventure in an adventure, its called.. airports :roll:
In Indonesia Ill buy another little Honda and continue the big trip Down Under.

Part 29: Indonesia, Sumatra

After a long flight from Kazachstan to Indonesia I continued the trip to Down Under.
In Medan, Sumatra I bought a new little Honda and started the Indonesia part of the trip.

Thanks Dave, it is beautiful, youre right. But unfortunately Indonesia is very polluted en not a lot of wildlife is left.
Such a shame. :cry:

Now I'm not tempting fate here. But how many times have you fallen off on this trip. Hopefully none.

TBH I think it was the right call. It was bad enough when I had to commute in pouring rain every day putting on wet kit till your days off when there was no dry kit left.

As a leisure/lifetime trip why suffer 8-)
