Indonesia Holiday 2016 - Cirebon

There are a few places in Indonesia that David has always wanted to see, but Cirebon was never on our holiday destination list until my cousin, Audy suggested that we should get together there. Audy was the engineer for the new water-park resort. So, there we were for a family gathering from the 23rd - 24th July.

We stayed at Ade Irma Suryani Waterland, a new tourist destination in Cirebon.

The place was quite hot, but the children had a lot of fun at the water-park.

David spent a lot of time with the children. He taught them how to play Texas Holdem Poker.

Dinner was served on the top of the Cheng Ho restaurant. It was a seafood barbecue. It was yummy....
But most of all, we had a fun family dinner.

Indonesia Holiday 2016 - Bali & Belitung

We arrived on the 2nd of July in Bali, this flying with Jetstar. As it was winter in Adelaide, we thought Bali was terribly hot so, we didn't do too much. We went to the 3D Art Museum, met with friends and generally relaxed.

On the second week, we went to the island of Belitung with Anning &; Jeffry's family. It was a very tiring trip as we spent 5 hours travelling the 130kms from Bandung to Jakarta. Then we had a 6.45am flight from Jakarta to Belitung arriving at 8am where we started our tour of the island straight away.
