Banda Aceh, Indonesia.

In October 2015, I had the chance to explore the Aceh region, which was devastated by the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami, as part of Japan Foundation’s “Hands” Disaster Education Fellowship.

It was amazing to meet the Acehnese people, hear their stories, and see how communities have built back stronger after the disaster.

Aceh is not only beautiful, it really is a special place (for so many reasons)…

I highly recommend it to anyone thinking about visiting Indonesia 🙂
