looking for travel buddy/s - Hi,
I´m actually staying on bali for a few months, but would like to leave the island for a couple of weeks. Thought about going east to Lombok, especially Sumbawa(more the west coast) and maybe Sumba. Or going west to Java( Pacitan, Pangandaran, Grajagan and of course exploration). Would like to go for about 3 weeks with motorbike from now on until end of August. Sharing a car is also an opportunity.
To have some company and a better time while travelling I´m looking for a/some travel buddy/s with similar ideas.
I´m 28, german and would consider myself as a intermediate surfer.
So, hope to hear from you.
