With Bali as the well-known Instagram-famous paradise, Lombok stands a bit in its shadow and is often ignored by travelers. Although we are happy that it isn’t as touristic as Bali, Lombok is definitely a must-visit destination when you’re in Indonesia. Because Lombok doesn’t see that many tourists, it isn’t as developed as Bali, which makes you witness the realness and purity of Indonesian life and culture. The island still has a lot of hidden gems ready to be discovered.

Our last house sitting assignment was probably the best we could have. We did it here in Australia on a family run cattle farm, where we learned a lot of new skills and had heaps of new experiences. Not only did we have to occupy ourselves with the pregnant cows, but we also started bottle feeding two newborn lambs!
Checking twice a day to see if the pregnant cows haven’t calved already, making sure that they can’t escape the multiple huge paddocks because of fallen trees over fences after a storm, and doing all this by motorbike. But also checking the flock of sheep, and even bottle feeding newly born baby lambs. This isn’t an ordinary house sitting assignment. This is probably the best house sitting experience we could wish for!
