Most families bond over dinner in their living room, mine bonds over countless roadtrips. On our last visit to Indonesia (Dec 2014), we went to Garut (Tasikmalaya) to visit Kampung Naga, a traditional Javanese village.
My mom was throwing up on the side of the boat, our guide standing by her side holding on to her just in case she got thrown off the boat. All around us the water of Sunda Strait, the stretch of water separating Java and Sumatra, was bucking in giant swells.
Quite possibly the prettiest beach in Java. Despite the bone-jarring 7 hour drive over rutted road, this place stole our hearts.
