  1. Really these attractions are new for me. I have heard about Bali, Its beaches and Jakarta and its attractions but I have never heard about Mount Bromo, Madakaripura Waterfall, Poten, Mount Batok and Mount Semeru. They are looking very attractive to me because I really like to enjoy the natural sights and mountain climbing. Recently I came from canadian bus tours and during these tours I visited many destinations of this country. After seeing your blog I have decided to visit the all places that you have mentioned above.
