“sebuah bangsa tidak akan kehilangan sosok pemimpin selama pemudanya sering bertualang di hutan,gunung, dan lautan.”
― Henry Dunant
Inspired by the quotes above that i first listened to when i joined Indonesian Redcross, i decided to join a trip to Hike Krakatau in 2015 with these peeps! It was an open trip in which i could’t remember anymore where do i had the info from nor do i the complete pics. *sad* speaking of my clumsiness which crashed down the storage.. So here are some of the stories that i dig in from this lil’ brain of mine.
Open trip usually has couple of meeting points, before the port then we could go to the port using bus or you could always meet at the port itself. If you go from Jakarta, we should go to Merak Port. That was my first time i went there. Finally feeling the hustle at the port and experiencing a Ferry boat. oh my it took a long time to load all stuffs to the Ferry. bring somethings to pass time. Once it’s finished. Off we go to Bakauheni port. Fret not, the journey continues to a dock to reach the Sebesi island where our accomodation was located.
About Sebesi Island, guys… Signal + electricity was scarce back then. Hope it’s better this time so essentially you have the off time where you could linger and feel the sea breeze with its calming sound. Good detachment from the city hustle and bustle though i don’t know if i could stay for long. LOL.. sorry i am an internet addict. Anyway, i’ve survived.
Getting into the trip itself, i had several opportunities to snorkle though it wasn’t that great. The current was a bit too rough for me and i think i had a bit of sea sick.. But how could you not love the sea? as for the hikes.. well, it’s pretty mild for a beginner, go there with your own pace and you will be alright. If we could made it, you do too! I enjoyed the ride and hope you too..
wish you were there with us! Cheers! 😉
