Couple months ago me, my mum, and my sister decided to have a little staycation in Jakarta. After browsing some five-stars hotels, I decided that we HAVE TO stay at Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta. The interior is super beautiful and the marble bathroom just made me fell in love right away. So, here’s our Four Seasons Jakarta photo diary. I don’t feel the need to give a full review on five-stars hotel because everything will be rated 5/5 anyway, but I will share some experiences that I think are extraordinary.
I’ve been eyeing this cute turquoise cabin for quite some time now, and I finally got a chance to stay in one of them on my recent visit to Nusa Ceningan Bali. Nusa Ceningan is a tiny island at southeast Bali, part of Nusa Islands which contain three island (Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Ceningan, and Nusa Penida).
Last weekend I took my sister to Bali as a her birthday vacation. It’s just a short weekend gateway but it was fun! We’ve been to Bali for five or six times already, so this time I chose to avoid the crowd and took a thirty minutes boat ride to quiet Nusa Islands. Nusa Islands include three islands, which are Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Ceningan,and Nusa Penida (the biggest one). Since we just had two nights there, we saved Nusa Penida for another time.
We took the latest boat, departed at 5 PM from Sanur, Bali. It was already sunset time when we arrived at Nusa Lembongan. We came straight to our accommodation which located at Nusa Ceningan, had dinner there, and slept. So basically, we had only one full day to explore the islands. On the last day we just had breakfast, caught our boat back to Bali, and spent bloody 5 hours at the famous La Plancha before went back to Bandung. And here’s the pictures to sum up our short sisters vacay!
Berlin is one of the biggest capitals in Europe. Do you know that it’s 9x bigger than Paris? Well you know it now. Big city means many places to check out and more time to get from one place to another. My recent visit to Berlin, in the middle of winter, not gonna lie, was stress me out a bit. I had 1 km long bucket list and they’re all scattered all over the city. With the weather slowing me down, it really was impossible to check them all out. What I did to make it easier to decide where to go, was to put them in groups categorized by area and then explored the area one by one. So on this post, I want to share my Berlin bucket list in groups so it’s easier for you to plan your trip!

Hi guys! It’s been a long time since my last post! I just feel uninspired lately but the blog hiatus is over now since I’m back on the road again! I’m writing this on the train on my way to Prague, Czech Republic. Can’t stop looking out of the window to the miles and miles of woods covered with snow and the sun setting on my window.
So basically, I’ve just finished my adventure in Berlin. It’s been a good time and I had a proper adventure yesterday. As you may or may not know, Berlin is a very hipster city. There are graffiti everywhere, old and abandoned building scattered all around the city. From abandoned theme park to abandoned airport to abandoned hospital to abandoned spy station! You named it! This city was pretty messed up by the war and for that it becomes heaven for urban explorers.
It’s not a secret that London is hella expensive. Here are some proofs to make sure we’re on the same page. I paid £10 for an espresso and 3 mini cupcakes, and I mean… teeny tiny mini cupcakes; when in home I can probably buy around 12 regular size cupcakes from a good quality bakery (rolling eyes emoji please!). I paid £5 for snacking a plate of Dutch pancakes with warm Nuttela and icing sugar, take away, in a market, not in a fancy cafe when you can sit down in a comfy sofa with the fastest wifi ever. Another example, £11 for a regular lunch (burger, fries, and lemonade), super basic! Not to mention by the time I was there, more than 1.5 years ago, before all of the Brexit drama, the British Pound Sterling’s still very strong (£ 1 = around IDR 20.000). Now you do the Math!
Hi guys! Sorry for the lack of post lately. I just moved house and spent these couple weeks to put things together in the new house. Moving house is exciting but exhausting at the same time. Some parts are really fun though. My favourite part has to be decorating, for sure. I’d been looking and searching for decorations to put in my new room since..forever! Literally spent every spare time with scrolling down my Pinterest Board, browsing through Etsy shops, and watching bunch of room tours on Youtube. I found quite a lot interesting pieces that I love (all about travel, of course!). I though it’s nice to share with you to give some inspirations. Here the top 10 travel decorations for travel lovers to have in their bedroom (or any other rooms, really!)
I arrived early in the morning, after a long horrible train journey from Munich, Germany. Seriously, don’t you dare thinking about the classic, pretty, fancy, and comfy European trains. No, it’s not like that. Okay, maybe tourist trains or scenic trains look like that, but regular trains are not!
To be honest, sometimes I get nosy and curious about what other people wants to achieve in their life. I love reading people’s bucket list and knowing what motivate them everyday. By browsing through other people’s dreams, I’m able to create mine as well. So here’s I’ll show you 50 of my mission in life. Some of them are in my mind for a very long time, some of them are new and inspired by other travellers, and just a tiny bit of them I’ve already completed (I’ll mark them). Well, don’t be surprised, this long list seems like a bit crazy, unrealistic, and all over the place. But these are “places I wanna see and things I wanna do before I die” kinda list. Hope I can inspire you or just simply help you to find your next holiday destination. Ready?
As an Indonesian, we probably have a love-hate relationship with The Netherlands as they colonised our country for 3,5 century! But that’s a long time ago. And if somebody ask me why I visit Amsterdam then my answer would be “Why not?” There are too much reasons to visit Amsterdam, and I’m gonna give you five! Here you go…
