I am an English teacher. I live with my lovely family in Kerinci in a small village not far from Padang, West Sumatra,
I am marrige and have three childrens . We really enjoy hosting Workawayers in our family, and share our daily life with them. We love showing you around our region. There is so much to do and to see here! Hot pools, mountain hikes, jungles, lakes and waterfalls are waiting to be discovered. But mainly our wonderful people!
Kerinci has many different cultures and languages. Most of Kerinci people are farmers, we have tea and cinnamon plantations under Kerinci mountain, the highest mountain in Sumatra. There is no tourists here and people will give you a warm welcome and many smiles. Prepare to have your photo taken by many people you met!
We have alot of waterfalls, and also Kerinci lake and Gunung tujuh lake - one of the highest lakes above the sea level in Asia. In Kerinci, there is alot of cinnamon fields. We produce one of the best guality in the world! There is also the tropical forest with untouched wildlife, we call it 'Kerinci seblat national park'.
I like to share my home, valley and culture with you and make your trip, an adventure with unique experiences! It is important to me that you feel like home in my house.
We are a 7 hour minibus ride from Padang, West Sumatra. This is the closest airport. If you are interested to visit us, I can arrange a minibus to pick you up at the airport.
We are looking forward to hearing from you! :)
