Open Trip to Krakatoa (Krakatau), Lampung

Sunset always look so pretty 
wherever they are :)

Sunset at Umang Island, the one and only picture from my phone since I uploaded on my social media :)
So actually not far from Sukabumi trip, I went to Krakatoa, or Krakatau at Lampung, Sumatera. It is a volcanic island located at Sunda Strait between Java and Sumatera Island. This would be my pretty saddest diaries because my phone was broken and I haven't back up any pictures from Krakatau trip but still want to post something about this trip because I went there already.

It was spontaneous open trip on Friday, 18 - Sunday, 20 August 2017 (3D/2N). The meeting point was at Merak Harbor so me and friends met at Slipi Jaya then from there we went together to Merak Harbor, cost for this open trip was Rp385k/person.

Weekend Getaway to Sukabumi - Time for Nature

"Sometimes you just want to get away
from air polution in your city so
having short weekend getaway 
to see nature is a good option!"

This trip begin when I saw a friend updated status that she looked for travelmate to go to Sukabumi on weekend so I said I am in immediately as long as no need to take annual leaves and I am free to join on that weekend, 5 - 6 August 2017 (2D/1N).

Day 1 - Saturday, 5 August 2017

I booked train ticket from Bogor Paledang to Sukabumi Rp25k, our meeting point would be at Paledang Bogor Station 7.30 AM. I just found out that Bogor has 2 station, Bogor and Bogor Paledang, Paledang Station is located not far from Bogor Station, you can just walk, the location is on the opposite of Bogor Station, so cross the road and walk for about 10 minutes.

Local Experience in Jakarta : China Town area, Kopi Es Tak Kie, Sunda Kelapa Harbor

Quick Post :)

July 29th, 2017

busy day at Glodok area
If you have time to explore Jakarta, where else to go? I made a blog post about What to do for One Day Trip at Jakarta with a Low Budget? before, so you might want to check that out too.

I want to share this one because personally I feel this place is so unique and interesting to try in Jakarta. Most people already visited this place but I haven't yet so when I got a chance to accompany a friend to go around Jakarta then I think I want to visit this place. The place is located at Central Jakarta and known as China Town in Jakarta. How to get there? Take Trans Jakarta (cost Rp3,500) route Blok M - Kota and get off at Glodok then walking and explore around China Town.

It's finally here! The blog post where usually people will try to find or ask first about traveling which I save the best for the last :p

It took me few months to finally be able to finish my travel diaries for Europe trip, such a longer post ever! phew! Hopefully you enjoyed reading it and could feel what I feel during my Europe trip where I would be glad to share it to you and for sure it is my treasures. 

Personally, I felt I did great for my trip, starting from my preparation (check out here to see my blog post about Things to Do and Tips to Save Budget for First-Time Solo Traveling in Europe), my route for traveling where I booked multi-city instead of round trip, taking care myself before the trip and especially during the trip because I travel solo and for sure I did have lots of FUN for this Europe trip!

Europe 17/17 - Italy : Such a Sunny Day at Milan to end my Europe Trip, Grazie!!

Don't overthink about it. Just Go.

Day 18 - Saturday, 1 July 2017

Last day already? huhu..time does fly too fast especially when you're in holiday. My flight still at 10 PM so it means I still have one day in Milan. In the morning, I accompany my friend to do weekly groceries shopping at Ipercoop Market, such an interesting thing for me since I joined what usually local people do. And mostly in Europe, they avoiding use plastic so they will usually carrying their own shopping bag because sometimes you need to pay like 0.5 euro per plastic which is quite expensive for plastic, so if you're not bring your shopping bag then either you will put all the stuff in your bag or you want to pay for the plastic.

The supermarket located quite far from center city, but my friend said the price is good in here, it's also a big supermarket and that's true. Once I entered the supermarket I feel like I should buy something in here haha. The pasta selections are very nice, and everything is cheap, how I love it! Too bad, I only can buy several things because my backpack already full already, wondering how will I packed my things later.

Europe 16/17 - Italy : From Rome to Milan, My Last Night for Europe Trip

“To travel is to live.” 
- Hans Christian Andersen
Duomo in Milan, stunning!
Day 17 - Friday, 30 June 2017

My friend already left Rome last night but I am still here, my train for Milan is at 12.20 PM this afternoon. I don't wanna go somewhere so I am just laying down at my room until check out time at 10 AM. My train will leave from Rome Termini Station, so I left my hostel and stopped by at the market to buy couple things before heading to the station. I found this Conad City Market where actually it's cheaper to buy there comparing with others market. I also tried to shop using the self service one, it's an unique experience for me.

Rome Termini is a big station and there are lot of shops inside the station. They have some brands at the station like Mango, Kiko etc. While waiting for my train I visited those stores and going upstairs to the foodcourt, sit there and waiting. Anyway in my opinion, it's quite hard to find someone speaks in English because Italian most of them speak their own language, sometimes when I already clearly ask in English, they still reply in Italy where for me seems roaming because I don't get what they mean.

Europe 15/17 - Italy : Still at Rome and Back Again to Vatican for St. Peter's Basilica!

Day 16 - Thursday, 29 June 2017

Today, I woke up super late and we started our day around 11 PM from the hostel. We didn't feel so rush because we almost visited like all the main sites at Rome so no rushed for today. Our plan is go back to Vatican and go inside the St. Peter's Basilica, so from Rome Termini Metro Station, we were heading to Ottaviano Metro Station (Line A) cost 1.5 euro, then we will walk to Vatican.

Arriving at Ottaviano Metro Station and there are so many shops there, there was another Kiko store along the way then we went inside and buy couple things, they also have Free Wifi which is so cool. There are also some souvenirs shops.
