Up and down the River

After a very long time, probably the first time this year, we travelled to a new place in Indonesia. We picked a river cruise in Palangkaraya on the island of Kalimantan that was meant to take us through rain forests and orangutan colonies along the river.

The reality was a little different from our expectations. Not so much of a rain forest, and only a few orangutans to spot. The cruise company does collaborate with the orangutan conservation and rescue operations there, but for us it ended up being a more relaxed weekend rather than a major adventure. Got treated to some fantastic food on the boat, plenty of colour and culture along the riverbanks, and some pretty scenic views, so no one’s complaining.
