Island Adventure

My LEAD Week came around again, and this year I took a two-night trip up to Pulau Seribu (Thousand Islands) north of Jakarta to stay on Pulau Macan. The trip was focussed on eco-tourism, and while we were there we learned about how the resort minimized their environmental impact to create a sustainable experience. We also got to participate in a bunch of environmental activities as well as team-building games. Sounds cool? The read on…

Just last week, school was out for JIS for the week, and in order to completely relax and enjoy each other’s company (as well as beautiful Indonesia!), the Eastwood-Reeds took what looked on the surface like a regular holiday to Lombok. The results, however, may surprise you…

Take Me Home, New Zealand Roads…

For Winter break this year, the Eastwood family headed back to New Zealand for another South Island camping trip. The big difference this time… we had Mama!!! This was the first time that she had been to the South Island (ever), so it was really exciting for all of us. Rosie and I, being the responsible adults that we are, also were in charge of our own tent and gear, which made for loads of fun (mostly). Read on for the highlights of the trip…

Colour MANIA!!!

For this past term, I’ve been doing cross-country as part of the Junior Varsity (JV) team. It’s been really fun and has me pushed a lot at the same time. I’ve really enjoyed it, and as the season came to a close, we wanted to do something fun. So the whole team ran the Colour Run!

Cycle Trip with Papa

Bumi Perkemahan Sukamantri, our campsite

Well folks, we did! After years of saying “We should do that again” and “Wouldn’t it be great to have another trip?”, Papa and I have gone on another cycle tour. But first, some background. During the summer of 2014, the two of us cycled nearly 500km around the Outer Hebrides, an island chain in northern Scotland. After that, we were itching to get out on the bikes again and do another trip. And now we’ve done it! We cycled 60km, to a campsite just south of Bogor in Central Java. Indonesian camping is a bit different than we are used to, but we still had a brilliant time!
