Despite endless traffic jams and bustling crowds, Yogyakarta seemed like a laid back town with an artsy soul. The main avenue turns every night into a huge street food market that serves everything from grilled fish to a jackfruit stew… but unfortunately no beer. The ban on alcohol selling was one of our biggest problems while travelling in Java. The only stimulant you can easily get there is ‘kopi joss’ - black coffee served with a charcoal inside - in case that wasn’t healthy I didn’t put extra sugar in it.

People in Jogja are very open minded, were always welcoming us with a smile and often asked for a selfie together. The city is not only the cradle of the Javanese civilization but also one of the most popular destinations for students in Indonesia. Here they can choose from more than a hundred public and private universities!
