Indonesia Itinerary

Posted by djkeith on 6/11/2013 at 13:47

Hey all, Travelfish was great for me on my last trip around S.E Asia and now I'm looking for some advice about a rough travel itinerary for indonesia.

Time wise would be roughly two months and I'd like to avoid planes as I'm going to try and get as far as possible from London without flying (hence a lot of planning!). T ...
