Liz and Chris cycled across Indonesia in 2010, as part of their bicycle tour from New Zealand home to the UK.
In this edition of 10 questions, Liz and Chris share the highlights and daily routines of bike touring in Indonesia, including a diverse landscape and being adopted by local families for an evening.
How would you describe the sensation of cycling in Indonesia, for someone who hasn’t been there?
Indonesia is a big country made up of many different islands. We cycled in Bali, Lombok and Java during our 2 months. Depending on where you are, you can have busy roads and pollution or quiet country lanes with paddy fields on each side. Wherever you are, the country is full of smiles.
