Greetings from Pulau Weh, Indonesia. As my Vietnam visa expired this week and the new year celebrations are coming up I’ve taken the opportunity to get of Saigon for a couple of weeks.
Weh Island is north of Sumatra and has no airport, so you have to get a ferry from Banda Aceh. Internet is patchy but my bungalow has wifi and I have a data for my phone on a local sim card. People who visit here come for the diving so it’s not really an island for working.
Here is this weeks Nomadic News!

Office Of The Week
Coffee time in the village of Iboih in Pulau Weh, Indonesia. There was no wifi here which is sometimes a good thing as I get to do all those offline tasks without internet distractions. Note the coffee with sweetened condensed milk. In Indonesia they let you add sweetened condensed milk to your own taste.
