Travel Berastagi

A morning person I am not, but I witnessed the second sunrise in my life (the first being an unforgettable version at Bali) sitting quietly by the edge of Danau Toba. I don’t remember what made Patrick and I scrambled out of bed before breaking dawn as it wasn’t in our itinerary to wait for the sun to say hello. Nonetheless, it was a mesmerizing experience. {PJs, sleepy eyes, happy […]

Travel Danau Toba

The only travel tip I have for anyone who plans to pay Danau Toba a visit is to rent a motorbike and explore Samosir Island by two wheels. I was lucky to have an expert rider, Patrick, a dear ol’ high school friend from our golden times; when he used to pick me up for tuition classes or back from Saturday co-curricular activities. I am Asian, so I totally understand […]

Like a rooster, I rose earlier than the sun. Through bright and dark times of the day, I wore my RayBan faithfully. With a bare face I dashed to the airport to meet Patrick, my high school mate since Class 2001, dressed in an all-blue jersey material from top to toe looking strikingly sporty; like he was ever ready to make a helluva trip out of the long weekend we managed […]

Medan

I was supposed to visit Nepal with Patrick and Gan, two of my high school classmates, a week after the earthquake. Everyone was trying to get out of the country then, so our trip was postponed to the same time next year. Desperate for an escapade during the long weekend, Patrick and I made an impromptu decision to make Medan happen. It is hard for me to say this because I love traveling and […]

Bandung

Every time i visit a different country, it feels like starting a new short-term relationship. You fall in love, learn to love its good, and before you can learn about its bad, it’s time to leave. When you get back home, you live with the memories of that special but fragile relationship you had. You try to reteach yourself to see the good of your own country because it is […]

Tangkuban Parahu

There were no tourists in sight. Only travelers and locals. It takes a wild heart to bring one’s self to be present this close to a living volcano when the world is so big; promising perhaps more extravagant places to wander or to simply get lost in fascination. Tangkuban Parahu was nothing quite like that, yet neither was its beauty any lesser; should one allows the self to get immersed […]
