Indonesia Expat Diary Blog Series: Month 4th

Indonesia expat

The Indonesia Expat Diary blog series was inspired by an interest in reading about the life happenings of other expat bloggers. I started writing my own version of being an “expat” ever since I moved back to Indonesia. I hope you enjoy reading the summary of the last 30 days of my life, as an Indonesia “expat”, as much as I love writing about it.

I have a happy news to share with you, but first a background story: a while ago, someone asked me on Instagram, how could I afford to be a full time traveler. It was a well meaning question, triggered by my bio: Full Time Traveler, Part Time Blogger. The uncool thing is, though I would love to, I couldn’t. That bio was just a tiny part of myself, a summary of what I love to do, which is to travel all the time and write about it sometimes. But it’s not necessarily what I do. I only know a handful of bloggers who travel all the time, unfortunately I am not one of them. I work as an accountant to afford traveling. Yeah, I am the textbook cliche of the travel loving cubicle warrior.

Now, the happy news.. After taking a gap period, which I intended to use effectively, but ended up spending most of it watching TV, I am going back to the workforce! I will officially be the Indonesia expat. I plan to live tweet my first day working, but let’s see, it depends on the battlefield.

For now, let me share  an Instagram round up, which is a totally unrelated thing, but fun to do.

Above are the latest collection in my account. I use Instagram mostly to showcase the pictures I take while traveling with occasional feet and coffee cup on hand pictures thrown inside. The main reason I use it to engage more with like minded people and bloggers. How about you, what do you use Instagram for?

Last month, I had the honor to take over the #GirlGoneInternational, the global community of globe-trotting and expat ladies, official Instagram account for a week. I posted a total of 16 pictures, had a lovely time “hanging out” there and ended up following many travelers whose accounts made my eyes green with envy.

Also, before I go, I am sorry for falling behind on replying your comments and emails. I have been overwhelmed with job searching/going to interviews/convincing people to hire me lately. I will get to it ASAP. As always, thank you for reading and don’t forget to add me on Instagram.
