  • Terios 7 Wonders: Observing the Road and the Life of Baluran National Park

    10 October 2013  •   •  4 comments

    Day 6-7. Destination: Baluran National Park. It was easy to understand that we were to visit Baluran National Park as the next destination. By location, it’s smacked in the middle of our route. We did about 7 hours on the road and, again, we failed to meet a sunset on this lag of the trip. Read More

    Remember how we huffed n’ puffed when hiking a hill on Dieng Plateau? I swore I wasn’t ever going to hike a hill or a mountain again! And like many ‘nevers’, this promise was finally broken, in less than a year’s time. To my defense, I had no other choice. I was going to Baluran Read More

    Ah Indonesia! A country so lush with tropical forest and green with rice paddies. Or so it may seem. If this is the Indonesia you’ve been hearing about, maybe it’s time for us to tweak this image just a little bit.

  • Friday Photo – Lonely Bromo

    24 September 2012  •   •  4 comments

      There’s a reason why I idolize Yudi, short for Yunaidi, an Indonesian blogger from Pekanbaru. He might be young for a photographer but he can sure take great pictures.

      It was one of the hardest morning I had to bare. The air was super cold, I couldn’t keep my calm. I was shivering. I could see my breath. I had only slept for an hour in a sitting position and I was fasting, so goodbye coffee. But all of that couldn’t stop me Read More
