ajb’s Holiday Reading Guide

As our children’s academic year in Jakarta draws to a close, we are making final preparations for the summer holidays with our families. But before we pack that last suitcase, we wish to share this final post with you.

Today we present you with some holiday reading; in particular a hand-picked selection of our favourite ajb blog posts. We’ve also included a few posts which will be useful if you’re soon moving to Jakarta.

We would love for you to join us on our holiday adventures. Follow us on Instagram at @ajourneybespoke We post every day – usually about life in Jakarta but sometimes with a focus on beyond the Big Durian.

Finally, for those of you moving to Jakarta over the coming weeks/months, we wish you a smooth transition. For those of you travelling abroad, we wish you safe travels and happy & rewarding adventures. And those who are remaining at home, may you enjoy many peaceful & relaxing moments.

Best wishes always

Jo & Liz
