Carnival in Jogja
While strolling through Yogya city in Indonesia we stumbled upon a huge carnival taking place at the Malioboro street! i know how such a carnival looks like in my home country but i’ve never experienced it in a foreign country. So we decided to sit into a coffee shop with an elevated balcony and enjoyed the parade from up there.

The Carnival Vlog
While strolling along the streets of Jogjakarta we accidentally stumbled upon a huge carnival at the Malioboro street. We discoverd a coffeeshop with a nice elevated balcony on which we sat down, ordered a cappuccino and an iced latte, to enjoy the carnival parade from up there. It was amazing to marvel at the different costumes, formations and choreography they presented at this carnival. Different instruments, lots of colors and costumes! A highlight were the traditional carriage with horses or dogcarts however you want to call it. Jogjakarta is well known for its retro carriage pushed by horses through the city and it was nice to see them implemented in the parade as well.
