Beautiful Indonesia

7 Mar

Hey Folks,

Rob here on the ms Rotterdam. This time of year the Rotterdam is the one lucky ship in the entire fleet to be doing regular trips around the islands of Indonesia and this country sure does offer a huge variety of things to do. Whether it’s the bustling city life of Jakarta, the ancient religious grounds of Borobudur or the beautiful islands of Bali, Lobok and Komodo.

To demonstrate, here are a few examples of those fantastic islands… (editing and panoramics with the help of the ever useful Windows Photo Gallery of course!)
