Hi there. I’m Firsta.

Pronounced First with an ‘a’ (not Fiesta). If you guessed I was the first child you are right. Lucky for my little brother he is not called second, but that’s a different story.

Three years ago I quit my corporate job and started a blog, Discover Your Indonesia. It was a chance to share my love of travel (and some useful information) with other travellers. It’s an unfinished project. I’ll never finish exploring my country. 😉

200+ articles later I am travelling outside Indonesia again. A Travellers Journey, originally Nico’s blog, is where I share my travel stories outside Indonesia, but also tips on how to break free of the regular 9 to 5 (that’s only if you want to of course).

And I’m Nico.

I started this blog as a way to share my travel stories and earn some extra money. Little did I know where this site would take me.

Since finishing university I left the security of my home in England to see the world. I have visited four continents and learned four languages. For the last few years I worked as head of communications for a successful tech startup. Thankfully I already work from my laptop and I don’t think that’s about to change.


We are happy having you here and hope you enjoy our travel stories and Firsta’s blogging tips. Have a fantastic day!
