A human being is part of a whole……Our task must be to free ourselves….by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in it’s beauty. – Albert Einstein

Hi, my name is Kat.

I am a travel blogger at junglelifebykat.com currently living in Indonesia.

I was born in South Africa then immigrated to Australia in 2009 where I lived for the past ten years. I am now living and travelling in Indonesia. I would like to share with you my travels and experiences on the Island of Sumatra, as well as other parts of Indonesia, interacting with the locals.

As a child I loved exploring my surroundings and burying myself in books, especially mystery, adventure and fantasy. Now I enjoy reading an assortment of Authors such as Lee Childs, David Baldacci, Khaled Hosseini, Bryce Courtney, Sidney Sheldon and the list goes on.

My stories are about the folk on the islands of Indonesia, how they live, how they survive in the jungle and the type of work they do.

Their love for cats, and how the local cats coexist with the wild larger jungle cats, as well as other wildlife of the jungle.

I’d love to connect with other free spirited travellers and bloggers who like to explore local cultures and travel to out of the way places.

I hope to accomplish sharing my many interesting stories about my travels and the locals of Indonesia, and what we can learn about the Island of Sumatra, it’s people and their simple way of life.
