South Korea, 2012
I did not have enough preparation for this trip. Last year, I only planed to go to Komodo Island, but then by coincidence, I follow one of traveler writer who is Claudia Kaunang. At that time, she opened registration for South Korea Trip, so I registered my self and not expect too much because I know there were so many people register to join her trip. So, after I had a fix plan to travel to Komodo Island, then I received the email from CK. I was so excited, so I decided to go although I only had a minimun budget. My consideration was this trip would be my first trip going with the group and I could meet a lot of new people and the travel’s cost not so expensive :).

Labuan Bajo, Nusa Tenggara Timur, Indonesia, 2012
I and my friend decided to visit Komodo Island since 2011. Yes, as Indonesian people, we are very proud because of The Last Dragon only could live in Indonesia. So, we decided to see what was The Komodo look like. At this moment we only have a chance to visit Labuan Bajo and went with the boat to several island around Komodo Island. There was no direct flight from Jakarta to Labuan Bajo, we had transit in Bali and took smaller flight, we usually called it as “pesawat capung” from Denpasar, Bali to Labuan Bajo.

Bali. I will understand if some people said that Bali is the best destination for the vacation. Yes, there are many beautiful places, and every year there are many new resorts, clubs open. Honestly, sometimes it was not good for the islands itself, in my opinion it was kind of exploitation. In 2009, I went to Bali for vacation, I still could enjoy the sunset at Kuta Beach by sitting at one of the cafetaria in one of the biggest mall at Kuta. In 2011, when I went to Bali for work, I mostly spent my time at Nusa Dua Resort Area, so at the last day when I still had a plenty of time before my flight depart, I decided to visit Kuta, then I shocked. There many people there, and the beach looked very dirty. I hope the government always maintain and has the best strategy to keep the originality of the island, the development itself could bring harm for the island if we only think about the money and the quantity.

Malang, East Java, Indonesia, 2010
Malang is the city where my grandparents live. Every year in Lebaran Day I and my family always went to Malang. When I was a child, I always spent 1 month at my grandparents’s house to spend my school holiday. But when I grew up, the longest day I could take is around 5 days. So, in 2010 when I did not have something to do in Jakarta, I decided to go to visit my grandparents and stay for 1 month. At that time, my grand father still alive but he was very old and sick. I remembered how I try to talk to him at that time, and sometimes I assisted Bi Sumi in taking care my grandparents. When all the families already went back from Malang, I had a plan to go the place that I never visited before, and chose the place that could be reached by the public transportation, because I would go by my self.

Padang and Sikuai Island, West Sumatera Indonesia, 2009
I and my friends went to Padang in 2009. My plan was to go to Sikuai Island. But, we have no choice to visit Padang before we went to Sikuai Island. I never have a plan to go to Padang before, but knowing that Minangkabau area weather is so cool gave me another experience. So, we spent 3 nights at 3 different hotels. To visit the sikuai island, it would take only around 40 – 50 minutes by boat from the dock at A & W at Padang.
