Asia » Indonesia » Java » Yogyakarta May 16th 2010

I read 1 of vagabonding article by Lavinia Spalding, she wrote a phrase " Don't think about it too much. Don't make pro and con lists. Pro and con lists are nothing but trouble. If you think about it too much, you'll just end up staying home and then someday you'll be telling your grandchildren ". This will motivate me since I just decide to quit my job and find out what world can offer me from now. Next destination, I'm heading to Jogjakarta, lack of time do to research, so I just go with a flow. I hope there's not much different between Jakarta and Jogjakarta, because I have been to Jakarta before. Landed at 11am, I catch Trans Jogja ( very efficient and reliable public transport ) that only cost Rp3,000 to any ... read more

It's about time to pack my bag and move from Siem Reap. Very mix up feeling, a bit difficult to leave Cambodia ( because i start to love everything about this country ), and excited to go to Bangkok. We leave at 9am, from Siem Reap, the bus rides just similar with the one i rides from Phnom Penh. It took 5hrs to reach Poipet border.
