Sheraton Surabaya Hotel & Towers in Surabaya, Indonesia
A reason for beingWelcome to 'Travels with my Angst'.
A blog about family,travel,living in Asia and working in the education industry. Started in China, and continues now that we're back in Indonesia. We do try to provide some useful esources for travelers and for people intending to relocate. It's a place to learn a little something about the kind of individual who would choose to live overseas. What kind of demented loon(are there sane loons?) would choose to teach for a living?
Perhaps you've come here to learn. Perhaps you're curious. Perhaps you can't sleep.
Come dip your toes into the refreshing silliness that is our little corner of Cyberia.

I spent the weekend in Sendang Biru(supposedly
translates as Blue Lagoon)
It’s a area near Malang … about five hours drive
from Surabaya, a 20 minute boat ride,and then a fairly
rough one hour walk.
I hadn’t carried a water bottle within easy reach and after a good start I was soon winded and de-hydrated.
The jungle is a humid hell-hole if you aren’t prepared. I all but crawled the last few 100 metres down to the beach. I quickly re-hydrated and gobbled a couple of aspirin.
The lagoon was beautiful. Blue-green water, surrounded
by lushly overgrown coral walls. A large opening
allowed a steady surf to enter and replenish the
Oddly the lagoon is subject to tides; and the
high level we arrived at became a shallow wading pool
just before dusk.
Emily didn’t make the trip.
Once she found out we’d be camping without prepared
toilet facilities she begged off.
So it was myself and four other teachers, later joined
by a slightly larger group of teachers from other
Drinking, small talk and late-night swimming ensued.
Generally a pretty good time.
Sunday afternoon we hiked out again. Minus much of
the weight we had brought in. We packed out five bags
of garbage – two of which were beer cans, coke and two
I had been to the area in `99, but never to the lagoon.
It’s worth the trip.
All the best,Wayne

Surabaya is Indonesia’s (southeast Asia) second largest city, and the capital of East Java.
It is an ancient city with a modern Asian flavour. A mix of cultures, foods, fashion and music to delight the senses and draw you back. Close enough to Bali for weekend trips, Surabaya also has volcanoes and jungles within a few hours drive. Tefl International’s Indonesia course is in the heart of the city and close to eating, and relaxation centers.
The school building is located in the heart of Surabaya, offering easy access to exploring and enjoying the entertainment and tourist sites. The building is spacious and comfortable, with large classrooms, white boards and complete resource materials. The school phone, fax and internet facilities are available for trainee use with prior approval from the School Manager.

Located right in Surabaya and near some of the most beautiful beaches and scenery in the world, our TESOL Course Indonesia center is, if not in paradise, at least next door to it. With a wide variety of social and cultural activities, water sports and other activities, vibrant nightlife, delectable Indonesian cuisine, friendly people and close proximity to an abundance of teaching opportunities, Surabaya (and surrounding areas) is sure to have what you are looking for in a learning location.
Please read the summary. We have to accept that there are many differing opinions on the merits of this case. Indisputably the accusations, and the handling of this, have lacked both transparency and evidence. Comments will be moderated.
Tom Way is organising a gathering to show support for the staff of JIS, just and fair trial, and the future of students, teachers and child carers in Indonesia.
This will be held at around 16:30pm on Thursday 19th March all being well. Please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to join us. Anyone in the Surabaya area is welcome. It would be great if teachers from a number of schools can attend.
This is important!
