Java | Yogyakarta, Borobudur and Prambanan

We are staying in a lovely hotel in the middle of Yogyakarta after we decided to leave the apartment we were staying in. The beautiful mansion turned out to be infested with insects; making it impossible to cook in the outside kitchen [beetles kept falling into the food], to sleep [wild animals were crawling on our bedroom doors] and to read a book [as everything was open and the house covered in mosquitos]. When we noticed active nests with red paper wasps (a very protective type of wasp… well to be honest, wasps are never nice), we decided it was enough. We are now situated in the most luxurious and relaxing hotel ever. The hotel has a swimming pool, a wellness centre and a gym. I’ve already made use of the gym this morning, this was lovely after not being able to exercise for 5 weeks. Yogyakarta itself has been okay, but not our cup of tea, although the Kraton, the Sultan’s palace, was very nice. We  to also went to Borobudur (a Buddhist temple) and Prambanan (a Hindu temple); the famous temples of Java and both UNESCO world heritage sites. Today we are having a ‘relax’ day, which is lovely.
