Joko is an American expat TESL teacher based in Myanmar. However he is a frequent visitor to Indonesia and considers it his second home.

Joko has aptly titled the trip as his Tour d’Manado. Furthermore, he has gracefully agreed to share his experience with the Expat Indo community.



Follow along as he writes and shares videos of his 874 km journey across North Sulawesi. Along the way, Joko visits pristine beaches and remote towns untouched by tourism. He also chats with the locals and attracts the attention of school kids everywhere he goes!
