Missing Backpacker Concern

Hi all

just a brief post today, I am quite under the weather at the moment 😦 I wanted to share a link with you to another blog post from a blog called ‘My Wanderlist’ I recently discovered. Brad writes some great stuff, but this blog post of a couple of days ago was worrying. He talks about another blogger I’ve been following – Derek Freal. Last we heard he was in detention in Indonesia waiting to be deported to Singapore, but a few days later (he blogged on the 11th of June) and no-one has heard more from him. You can follow the full situation here –

Has a popular travel blogger gone missing in Indonesia?


And here is Derek’s blog – ‘The Holidaze

Sometimes we don’t realise how countries will react, and this apparently all came from a tweet he sent. I hope that very soon we discover Derek is fine and just couldn’t recharge his battery or something as someone suggested. I should be back tomorrow with service back to somewhat normal. If I hear anything else, I will blog about it.
