Snapshots from Tanjung Puting National Park

19 Apr

I just got back from a short trip I had been fantasizing about for a while. It was essentially the Disneyland Jungle Boat Cruise— but the real life version of it. My friends ElleJohn and I spent a few days voyaging down the Kumai and Sekonyer Rivers in Kalimantan, better known to most as Borneo. This is part of  the Tanjung Puting National Park, a conservation for the jungle and it’s inhabitants which includes orangutans. Through talking to a local guide we got wind that unfortunately bits of this area are still being sold off little by little to make room for more palm plantations. This is especially maddening?  saddening news after having the opportunity to visit a place like this.

Despite that if you’re into ecotourism it’s a worthwhile little adventure.  Here’s a few snippets:

    I’d like to feature this article from “The Personette”; a personal blog of a Peace Corps Volunteer serving in Indonesia.
    I’m featuring her blog because I really like how well designed her layout is. It’s simple, yet very aesthetically pleasing. It serves as a great example to anyone interested in improving their blog. It’s very easy to read and soft on the eyes. Her photos are really great too, they have a lot of character. I hope you enjoy reading her blog!
