Recently when I was traveling to Serbia, I introduced a Serbian friend to the term “Ring of Fire” because half-jokingly, I told him there’s a bigger chance that I die from natural disaster due to the volcanoes that surround me back home.

So in this post, collaborating with other awesome bloggers, I’ve compiled the list of incredible volcanoes you need to visit in Indonesia. Check this out!
