Baadsvik, also a musician, was distraught when she lost her passport, money, cards and computer in Indonesia. But, soon enough, she came across some Indonesian people who helped her in ways more than one. The locals, at first, took her to a police station and then arranged food as well as a place for Baadsvik to sleep. The next day, the group of locals got a gig arranged for her at a local cafe in order to raise money for her. The cafe owner went a step further and bought her a ticket to Jakarta so that she could get a new passport from the Norwegian embassy there. The warmth shown by the group of locals didn’t stop there as they made Baadsvik’s journey smoother by helping her with housing and transport in Jakarta.
