I’m the sort of person who plans his trip to the tee so as to not lose out on what a country has to offer the moment his foot’s out of the plane. And, to be honest, it has worked out quite well for me all these years. Though, theoretically being aware of how backpacking and hostels work; I have often wondered how the experience would unfold if I did end up getting out of my comfort zone and actually doing it.
So, there I was all set with a backpack in May 2018 for a short 17 day soiree to Indonesia with just my flight tickets, no accommodation booked and having only a faint idea of the places that I wanted to see. Sort of a go-with-the-flow trip.
