I was born and raised in Switzerland but I was always drawn eastwards. I traveled around the world hitchhiking and camping. In the mountains of Bali I fell in love with this beautiful family. They live in the most amazing area of Bali, on the edge of an ancient volcanic crater overlooking two lakes. There are hidden temples and secluded waterfalls in the surrounding jungles and it seems every time we go for a hike we explore something new. But sadly the people are illegally cutting trees and carry them out of the forest to make a few dollars. We want to show them that the forest is much more valuable as a whole and started to build an ecotourism business. We bought an old hotel and renovated it, made hiking maps for our guests, experimented with menus for our guests and gave English classes to the kids in the village.
Soon we will have our first high school class specializing in ecotourism. We are figuring out ways to recycle and dispose the plastic rubbish, because we believe the plastic problem can only be solved if we start on the top and try to keep the rivers clean.
I'm currently living and working in Batu Bulan and only on the weekends I will be up in Bukit Kembar. But my family is there and we can always offer you a room to stay.
