Sometimes in March 2013

IMG_5566_1

The desire to see a sunrise on top of a mountain never crossed my mind before. My friend, a mountain lover, persuaded me to come with him and his group to hike the Papandayan Mountain. Papandayan Mountain is located in Garut, West Java, a 4 to 5 hours’ drive from Indonesia’s capital city, Jakarta. As I’ve never conquered it, I just tagged along and paid the equivalent of $24 for the whole trip.

This trip is the kind of trip everybody called a backpacking trip. The group consisted of 20 peoples from various backgrounds and I would be the youngest in the group. We all met at the Rambutan local bus station at 10pm on a Friday. After that, at 12 midnights we got into the public bus to Garut. The bus ride took about 4.5 hours time. By Saturday morning we arrived at Tarogong the pit stop and continued our journey using a pick up truck to the mountainside.

Sensasi Bungy Jumping Pertama Kali

Ini adalah perjalanan pertama saya ke Phuket, Thailand. Mendapat tiket murah Air Asia dan Nav, teman yang sama – sama gila jalan – jalan kita memutuskan langsung beli dan pergi pada bulan Mei 2012. Pada hari pertama, kami baru bangun pukul 11 siang. Ini memang liburan yang tidak ada plan sama sekali. Jadi, saat bangun kita bingung mau ngapain dan memutuskan untuk bertanya di resepsionis hotel tempat kami menginap apa yang bisa kami lakukan hari itu. Pihak resepsionis memberikan kami alternatif seperti pergi ke Phi Phi Island, jalan ke Old Town Market, atau merekomendasikan agar kita berkeliling pulau Phuket menggunakan motor. Tiba – tiba saya mendapat ide gila untuk bungee jumping. Seru, gila, menarik, dan belum pernah saya melakukan itu. Continue reading Sensasi Bungy Jumping Pertama Kali
