After some very pleasant phone calls with Christine in December 2018 she sent us a schedule. We did not have to ask twice. In the middle of March 2019 our two-week adventure began. It went from Medan via Lake Toba, to Berastagi and finally to the paradisiacal Bukit Lawang. Besides a volcano ascent (Gunung Sibayak) we experienced a two-day trekking tour with our guide Safrool including an overnight stay in the jungle. We travelled through many beautiful areas, experienced the Indonesian city bustle and saw animals that we had only seen on TV before. Time passed so wonderfully slowly. New impressions. New faces. New smells. New food. New life. It was a vacation to our taste. This special closeness to the people gave us the opportunity to dive deeply into the Indonesian culture after only a few days. If, as “simple” tourists, we would have felt scepticism and fear in individual situations, this was never the case due to the warm and trusting exchange with the locals. We felt very comfortable. The general organization, the choice of the travel destinations and the special life-affirming nature of Christine, let us only come to one conclusion – absolutely recommendable.
