Isi from Germany, living in Indonesia 🇮🇩

Hi everyone, nice to meet you!

My name is Isi, I’m 26 years old, originally from a small town in Bavaria :pretzel: and I’ve called Bali home for the past 6 years. Other than German, I speak English, some rusty French and Bahasa Indonesia (in progress).

When I was 19 I decided to do my first overseas trip by myself and ended up going to Indonesia, where I not only fell in love with the country but also with a man… you know the drill. :smiley:
At that time remote work wasn’t such a big thing yet, so I had to figure out another way to finance myself abroad: Winter seasons in Switzerland! :switzerland: And that’s what I’ve done for four years. 4 months hard work in the Swiss mountains, 7-8 months island life with some small online jobs. :palm_tree:

Long story short, my fist love didn’t last but my appreciation for the country, the food and especially the people did. Fast forward to 2019, I finally got a permanent remote job in marketing and haven’t left Bali since (due to covid too).

I love to spend my free time with surfing, coffee, our dogs, music, cooking, being creative and making friends with people from all over the world. My boyfriend and I have a big passion for animals and made it our mission to help as many street dogs as we can here in Bali. :dog:

I would love to support you on your language study journey and show you that it is indeed possible to learn German. It might be a complex and difficult language, however, once you notice your first progresses you will see what a beautiful and diverse language it is! :de:

I’m really looking forward to meeting you!

Sunny greeting from the island

Hi Joann,

Thank you! :sunflower:

We fostered around 10 dogs - not all at once though :smiley: - and have been helping around 30 street dogs so far I think. It’s a never ending story, unfortunately, but many people here try to help as much as they can.
