WHOA! This Yogyakarta River Is ...!
hello there from Jogjakarta and from the inside of some weird abandoned castle like structure so we're in the middle of a comp you really can't tell but we're kind of making our way out of Jogjakarta we're up on that road up there and I passed by this wall that just has a uh a door cut out of it and you walk up there and it's like what the hell is this uh do a little bit of investigating and well it it was a uh a bath house that was built in the late 1700s by the sultan here in J Jakarta and now it's pretty much just left abandoned I read in 2018 they tried to restore it a little bit but it's pretty bizarre it's pretty bizarre it feels like it's a I don't know a European Castle or something you'd find in Rome or something uh-huh yeah there's some uh Little Steps in here we can get in there's a fish right in there wild very wild like we're going to stumble across a tomb or something okay and this goes on into uh the other side of the street o snake wow yeah yeah just a a very bizarre find and I think a good way to start the video uh yeah we're leaving Jogjakarta today we're heading to wosa area we're going to go check out a waterfall a cave make it to the beach Maybe by today but uh we'll see we'll see back here it just opens up into someone's Farm hopefully it's like this all the way no more big cities there beautiful beautiful scenery stuck in traffic at the top awesome and there's a boat up there and the traffic is going to start coming okay okay so that's a lot of dirt that's a lot of dirt there so uh we found our place for the night we uh we didn't get as far as uh we thought we would like always but we were just cruising down this road right here it kind of opened up you had beautiful Rice Terraces the palm trees really green really really nice and uh we found this little uh coffee shop over here on the corner looks like we're in Bali honestly and our plan was just to sit here for a second get a drink and then figure out a place to camp and well the owner of this place uh he calls it a soft bar they're kind of halfway open you know uh the uh the wife is in Jakarta and she's the one that does all the cooking and so they're kind of open kind of not you know but he's been super nice and uh we were initially just wanting to find a place to Camp really close by go to a place and get some veggies and fruits and whatnot but uh I need help we need help okay um okay but like I was saying uh we came up here started you know came up here made friends with the owner here and we were just like hey do you mind if we camp up here on the roof which we actually we might still do because it's is open you get a beautiful view U and he was like yeah no problem and then he actually took Vanessa to go get fruits and veggies two different places and then uh he was like well you know how about you guys just sleep in my son's room that's very nice of him but I think we're still going to Camp up there but Vanessa went and got the the veggie she's in here cooking in the naan Coffee Bean is the best in the world that's what he said yeah it is but he don't understand why it's so delicious really why they still want sugar? that's true why why do you have to add sugar to the best coffee in the world this is the son's room they said we could sleep in here very nice of them but I don't know it just feels really good outside the breee and I think we might just sleep on the roof hello there from the cleanest river in all of java I think I found it a river clean enough that I'll actually get in and swim unfortunately it's pretty shallow right now it's pretty low uh Ricky was telling me that usually it comes up to you know as you can tell a lot higher and when it floods way up there but yes Ricky and Dev they were our hosts last night they let us stay at their place and they're going to show us around a little bit today before we get on our way we picked up some lotek some U not lotek we picked up some lowtech for lunch and for breakfast we

hang out come to Blanc de Noir Ricky will take care of you a beautiful spot okay we're packed we're ready to go and we're heading towards the beach and hopefully it's nothing but beautiful scenery the entire way we'll see but it's already 2 o00 so we won't be on we won't be on the road long so all right guys hello hello thank you thank you Nick thank you all right careful we will thank you for letting us stay Thank you and uh hope to see you again yeah all right see you guys bye you okay maybe we set out on the wrong way we took the uh the back roads could have stuck to the main road but we're here for an adventure Monggo bu one thing I have never seen in Indonesia croquet and a bunch of young people playing usually this sport is played by a bunch of old people or at least that's how it's played in Japan at least and that would be our home last night good morning from I don't even know where I am somewhere outside of Jogjakarta still halfway between Jogjakarta and the beach uh yesterday we didn't quite make it and we just thought hey let's cruise through this Camp over here Camp over here and see if we could find somewhere to call home and so we found this lovely Place This 100y Old Joglo House had a nice beautiful lawn out here super dry because the owners were saying it hadn't rained here in 6 months but it's a nice peaceful little neighborhood and well actually we are we were cycling down this road right here and I saw the owner of the house the man walk out of the shower walk out of his little bath house over here in a towel and I was like let me just go over there and see if uh he'll let us stay and I walked right over here and I was like you know perise see excuse me can uh explain really quickly uh you know what we're doing I hey my name is Nick uh we're traveling Indonesia we're looking for a place to stay is that okay if we camp right here and he was yeah sure go ahead and uh actually they uh they let us stay inside the house but we ended up moving out here right here at about 12:00 because there are so many mosquitoes and so we just went ahead and set up the tent out here but it's a a beautifully simple and uh neat little home not much to it you know it's uh you don't find a lot of like furniture and excessive uh amenities so to speak no TVs nothing like that I mean it's literally just concrete flooring you wear your shoes inside uh it's pretty Bare Bones but it's it's well put together you know in a way it's it's or it's just clean which is awesome and so we actually we initially set out our night last night right here we set it up we uh fell asleep here but with the windows open yeah it was nice and Breezy but uh the mosquitoes were getting us and so I I got up set the ttin up outside and was like let's go out let's go outside but out in the back they have their own little farm some crops over there I'll show you in a second think they got three little goats yeah I just want to give you a quick tour of the house before uh we take off they got these two cute little guys nice little cats there's one room in here the kitchen in here again very clean it's so nice uh and so actually last night Vanessa she cooked up her Curry again which was delicious we uh we parked our bikes back here you know we took a shower last night hung up our clothes we're uh kind of packing up and getting ready to go right now in the back over here they got their three goats they're coming what's up guys and like I was saying the owner was telling me that they haven't had rain in like 6 months and so it's super dry here you can tell cycling around the area that it's just you know kind of brown and just pretty uh pretty dry out there but he was saying this well right here this is where they get all the water same kind of system they have set up at uh at U's house in Jember they have a well you saying usually they only have to go down about they only have to go down around 9 M to uh to get the well water but now they have to go down like 20 to 30 m so hopefully that [ __ ] doesn't dry up so that' be scary but this is the bathroom the shower room everything uh when you want to wash your dishes you you know you get a bucket like that you fill it up with the water here and you literally just sit right here and scrub and and uh clean your pops and pans and whatnot but to be honest like it's actually really clean like the toilet and everything is like clean yeah no smell no smell like sometimes I we've been in toilets like this and you're like oh my gosh it's you don't even you know want to touch anything the toilet has green stuff all over it and brown like the family does a really good job here of keeping whatever they do have neat and organized and clean which is not always the case anyways at one point yeah this was all closed in like their tub here has a huge crack in it they would have just put the wh water in here but no now now they use these big tubs right here it's nice nice open air bathroom b style the door you just kind of do this number and then you get naked and you take a shower byebye thank you thank you see you later little cat [Laughter] [Applause] out here in the middle of the forest absolutely nothing out here luckily the road isn't that bad though how many people people can you fit in the truck yes [Applause] yes all righty so we found ourselves a big old cave so all along the way from Jogjakarta to the beach and I guess in kind of on the southern part of java there's a lot of waterfalls and caves and places like this and we decided to stop by and check one out and it's pretty cool and this one when you look online I think it's a a holy religious place too obviously you see Jesus kind of floating in air over here crucified over there um maybe they have some sort of service Mass here all right first impressions of pantai baron, super nice out here but all these food stalls and vendors are empty so Wasteland it is barron wow but this right here is what we're talking about let's get some fruits Jakarta that's the thing to get to the beach you kind of have to go through this River here and we got all our stuff with us let's great about this beach, you don't see any Trash hardly any it's kind of crazy to think that this used to be open actually they have it blocked off now but this used to be a pathway that you could go on cross over and maybe go sit out on that boat over there on top of that Cliff woo know there's some big way holy [ __ ] so a lot of these warungs that lead up to the beach so this road that leads up to the beach has a lot of these fried seafood wons and uh we got some of the let me show you what we got we got some squid fried squid and they're also selling this stuff which right now it's super low tide and when we were over there there's a lot of people out on the beach like just looking for small things I thought they were looking for maybe some clams or oysters or something like that some uh shellfish but no they're picking this yeah no taste but the texture is nice right no flavor but just like a a crispy chip kind of nice and crunchy I don't know maybe a little salt would help check that out that's a pretty cool volleyball statue hey hey you do notice a lot of lot of people this direction playing volleyball out in their front yard uh you know I haven't really noticed that anywhere else in Indonesia to be honest so maybe yeah this is the uh the volleyball District of Indonesia they must be proud of their volleyball and uh welcome to and we have made it to Kasakora Beach and this is where we will call home for the night you can camp way up there but uh we got here kind of late and we're not going to do that we're just going to post up down here look like some more people are uh camping tonight which is nice
