Photo Tale: Machu Picchu, The Old Mountain

I just came back from what I call as a trip of a life time to Peru. Peru was so beyond expectations! I did expect a magical time in Machu Picchu, as this place is on top of my bucket list, but for the other places? Not so much. Well, I was totally wrong. And…

The Epic Things to Do in Hawaii

I visited Hawaii in March 2014 and have not moved on so much ever since. Yes, I went home with so many wonderful memories, let alone that I had quite an itinerary at that time: Alaska then Hawaii… yep BYE-BYE lower 48! I decided to travel to the US at that time to take advantage…

Turkey: The Perks of Traveling in Winter

Part 1 Off We Go to Turkey! … in Winter I have always wanted to visit Turkey. That one picture from National Geographic showcasing hot air balloons soaring above the lunar landscape of Cappadocia was enough to put Turkey on my bucket list. Well, that was Cappadocia, but honestly I was not sure what Istanbul…

Photo Tale : Gyeongbokgung Palace, Seoul

I’m not quite an urban explorer kind of traveller. I L. O. V. E. (or worship?) ancient civilisations; their ruins, captivating myths and history (ask why, LOL) but not much of a city lover. I enjoy nature a lot more than modern man-made attraction, let alone a metropolitan (megapolitan?) city like Seoul. Lucky for me,…

Photo Tale : Mauna Kea Summit

I chose this moment as highlight of my Hawaiian adventure. Mount Mauna Kea, arguably the world’s tallest when measured from the bottom of the sea (duh… xp ) was a vantage point to watch sunset. I enjoyed the whole adventure we took to reach the top and the stargazing tour right after that. I even…

Photo Tale : Flattop Trail, Alaska

Took this picture on my trip to Anchorage, Alaska almost a year ago. I was beyond excited at that time! Not only that I would set foot in  freaking Alaska but also I had a chance to visit my dear friend Mbak Fanny. Thanks to her, we got our accommodation and transport being taken care…

Franz Josef: Let’s Get Icy!

Hello there! 🙂 I am back with my second post on my NZ road trip and Franz Josef (will be referred as FJ further on) will be my second tale! Back to the previous month when we were still deliberating to book a tour to the glacier. Oh yeah, we were so surprised on how…

Queenstown : The Remarkables (and) Fergburgers!

A friend of mine once said, “ I had  found a place where I wanted to spend my elderly life in, it’s Queenstown”. Finally I found out why and definitely I would too spend my life in Queenstown without having to wait to get older!

Pictorial: The Southern Route

Yeay, I just made something up! I made a modification of a South Island map depicting our road-trip few weeks back in NZ. Just follow the dark blue line! ^^ Consider this as an opening post for my complete NZ travelogue 😉 Really, if you have a plan to visit NZ, just-freaking-do-it! — Punya rencana…

Photo Tale: Mount Marapi

Oh wait.. this is the other Marapi… not the one in Java but this one is in West Sumatra. The glorious mountain lurked from the beautiful Ngarai Sihanok on her feet. Took this photo last year, part of the bunch of photos I took from the Geological field-trip I was participated in. Sumatra is so…
