Lombok Five-O

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!!!

Indonesian camping is a bit different than we are used to, but we still had a brilliant time!
