I'm a bit over-excited to share my travelling experiences..
It's simply I'm out there hitting the road and having my feet keep on itchy mood to walk more and more.. it's simply I just want to have the time of my life out there and see more things this world offers me 😊

While I work on my own company, I got many chances ( I supposed too) to do what I want to do and see what I want to see. Guess what?! I don't choose to make it as simple as I thought about it :d Even I do want to skip lot of my works and be on the road (like you all wish for), I prefer to stay more focus on my work and after I feel I got stable at some point in a mean time, I'll take my time out as a reward on what I've done.. then be back on my duties again before hitting the next other (or same) road out there..

so, enjoy my write!
I also write on different blog, as you can check on WhistlingQQ

ah, since I do travelling and mostly in backpacker style, so you can find me on Couchsurfing

Live present fully, what's next let it be.. que sera sera..

.....Sometimes we need to go further in our own path or taking a big leap to find about ourself. But when you stop and look around,you already found the inner-side whose been sticking with you all these times and able to lead your own decision going through the path....

on my other daily blog , I also write about my latest trip to Semeru but I guess I'd like to write here again since this one is more read by any travallers :D So, last weekend me and some of couchsurfing friends planned to reach Semeru volcano, which also known as the highest volcano is Java island. Well, even it's only 3.676m heights compared with other higher summit.. despite this volcano is the highest one on the island where I live, also the trek path which challenged me to try :d I saw random articles and watched some videos about Semeru and all of them said it was kinda dangerous since already many people died from bein gout of track and lost. And some also fell deep down to rocky valley.. Few days before ... read more

And I noticed (as always), Kuta still crowded with too many foreigners ... read more

Asia » Indonesia » Java » Ijen Plateau August 17th 2010

Voila! Finally I've reached Ijen plateau! :D :D :D so the route I took to explore Ijen was: Bondowoso - Sempol - Belawan - Paltuding - IJEN!! - Taman Sari - Banyuwangi.. Let's start!! DAY 1 Started from my lovely city, Malang, from 8 am with my new travelmate from German, Anna :) and sure we kept using the economic way. Economic bus with no air-con (hell yeah!) for almost 2 hours to reach Bondowoso. But when we passed Probolinggo town, all the bus passengers asked to change into another bus which looked more scary than the first one.. It felt like the bus can be easily broken and crashed only by gentle smack :P hehe.. Along our way to Bondowoso, the bus couldn't afford to stop every hundreds kilometres to pick other passengers or just ... read more

And, ater we picked up by fishermen boat by morning, we started to sail against the morning wave to reach "Pulau Sintong".. but in the middle of our journey, the fishermen told us that the wave was too high to reach that place.. so we all agreed to passed "Pulau SIntong" and straight ahead to "Pulau Kecil" :( geezz...

Well well... this trip is my annual trip back to 'Home' which I'd rather called as my mom's birthplace :P hehe.. it's in Situbondo city, and I've drove my car for 4-5 hours to get there.. To reach this city, I've passed lot of small cities like Pasuruan, Probolinggo (which could lead yoto Bromo mountain), Kraksaan , Paiton, and more other smaller town to arrive in Situbondo, though it's a small town also :P before our way to Situbondo, we're come by to Surabaya to visit family graveyard from my dad's side.. and in Situbondo is from mom.. Since Situbondo loaed nearly with coastline, sure it's sooo hot! Dry wind and too-much-bright sun..which would make me can't stop dripping all wet :( but lucky me I got lot of cold winds and grey sky!! and sure ... read more
