ABOUT ME

Hello travellers, nice to have you here. My name is Nelly Andon. I am a wife to a lovely husband, a mother to a real handsome boy (well he is a grown-up man now), a travel addict and a social worker (unpaid social worker that is, in other words, I love to volunteer to make our world a better place to be).

This website is a place where I share my worldwide traveling experience, sharing my stories from some of the most amazing places I visited on this planet and where I met some of the most fascinating people and learned a great deal knowledge from them, their land and their culture.

I am aware whilst writing is not one of my strongest skills, I do hope that through my travel updates I can share some of the most amazing journeys of my lifetime. For me, traveling is much more than just visiting places and tell the world that I have been here and there, but in every visit and adventure, I love to take a step further beyond just ordinary traveling. When I met people, I made the most of these encounters, to learn and try to understand their way of lives, their culture, their tradition and along the way, embracing all things positive through these meetings and to leave as much as positive legacy behind me.  I have gained so much from my travels, and I hope I can inspire you to visit some of these amazing places.

On this website, I am also sharing some of my journeys to remote places in Indonesia, where I have devoted many years of my life working voluntarily and share my world with some of most amazing talented textile artists on this planet, the weavers and the Batik artists of Indonesia.  With my work and travelling experiences on this work, I would also love to invite you to travel with me to some of the most amazing destinations around the archipelago. Please visit my charity websites, where I blog all the things we did in since 22 January, 2000 www.connectindonesia.org  & www.wastraindonesia.uk

Thank you for stopping by. If you have any queries about places I share with you here on this website, please feel free to contact me.

Happy holiday!!

Nelly Andon
