My Indonesian parents’ biggest fear is to have guests leave the house hungry and they were concerned that Jack wouldn’t be able to find anything to eat during his first visit to Indonesia. What if he can’t eat rice everyday? What if everything is too spicy for him?
Yogykarta, Indonesia Last time we visited my parents in Indonesia, they decided that it was a good idea to go for a road trip around Java with the whole family – all 5 of us: my folks, my brother, Jack and I.

For a drive-through glacier, you know – the type of glacier where you can simply drive to, park, and gawk at, Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau was still impressive.

But it’s just hiking.
How bad can it be?
