I'm Belgian, grew up in Africa, and also lived in several countries such as Portugal, England, Mauritius island and now Bali in Indonesia. As my biggest passion is traveling, it made sense to become a travel specialist so I can share my passion and help you organize the perfect holiday.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"I love snorkeling, diving and also trekking. I also appreciate calm days including spa treatments or relaxing at the beach. Indonesia is my specialty! "
How did you get involved in travel?
"My love for travel started when I was very young as my father is a pilot and used to take me with him very often. I love discovering the varieties of cultures and ways of living. "
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"I had a lot of unforgettable experiences in Indonesia but my favorite is definitely the day I got off the tracks in Ubud's surroundings and got lost in the rice fields. After some times I found a little Warung (local restaurant) and discovered the delicious Balinese specialties with locals. They shared their amazing culture with me and helped me find my way back. "

Java trip, Indonesia - Nov 18 - Nov 24, 2018
The trip was AMAZING! So great to see and explore so much of east Java in such a short amount of time; Plateau Ijen, Mt. Bromo, Yojakarta, Borobudur and more :) The landscape is breathtaking (especially the sunrise over Mt Bromo) and I found myself time and time again in awe of the lush green surroundings.
A few things to call out - 1) underestimated the amount of time you spend traveling from one spot to another due to bad traffic, a lot of time spent in a car, and 2) the travel agency was... read more
Komodo and padar tour, Indonesia - Oct 25 - Oct 27, 2018
Our trip was amazing! From start to finish we were taken care of. Sharif and his crew were very friendly and their hospitality was great. Sharif was very knowledgable about the area, spotting Mantas, Dolphins and baby sharks! We had some enforced changes to our itinerary, as we were unable to see Padar island which was a disappointment, but we always had interesting places to go, snorkel and view the wildlife. The crew cooked us a banquet for every meal, so we never went hungry! The... read more
Java bali lombok flores and dragons, Indonesia - Aug 7 - Aug 22, 2018
Was an excellent trip, the guides on the ground were great, the communication in advance was very good. There were a few issues but aren't there always.
We have Yudi for a day I Yogyakarta , then Ovan for the rest of Java with Obbie driving and lastly Merta in Bali. Jessica was the initial contact and office based organizer.
The local guides had a deeper understanding of the best order to do things, when something should be busy or quieter - so whilst the things in a day were the same,... read more
Sights and adventure, Indonesia - Mar 13 - Mar 23, 2018
Thank you Kimkim and Shanti for creating the best honeymoon experience for us! It was an unforgettable experience and we have fallen in love with Bali and all its culture. Wayan was an excellent driver and we will always be grateful for him. He took us to many of his favorite local warungs and even ordered our food for us and made sure we were ok (when there was a language barrier with the staff). Our trip would not be the same without him!
Matthieu was also wonderful. During our meeting, he... read more
