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!
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!
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…
Bali is the most known city in Indonesia for so many years. It attracted around 4 million foreign tourists last year alone. Being a main tourist destination in the country, Bali offers a lot of amazing places to visit. The list is keep changing from year to year. Here’s few of the new places that I visited in Bali; ranging from luxurious villas to beach club to snack places; that are the “hype” because I’d heard many people rambling about them lately.
Hello! I just got back from my big family vacation in Bali. Bali is one of my favorite cities in Indonesia. I’ve been there for a good amount of times and usually check in at a hotel around Kuta and Legian. This time we decided to try something different and a little bit more chilled, so we checked in at The Santai Bali, which is located at Umalas area in Bali.
