Date night in Yogyakarta

Welcome to the Happy Light Traveller! After travelling South East Asia in 2015-2016 I decided to combine my love for travelling and personal growth in a blog that would inspire you. I not only want to do this with my stories and personal insights (which I have named "inner ramblings") but also with my recent love for photography!

"Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it." William Arthur Ward Enjoy!
