Krakatau Hiking

“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! 😉

Bandung and the Hike!

Bandung. i love this city to the bone and i miss this city so much at this very moment. Well, for you who has never been there, Bandung is the capital city of West Java Region in Indonesia. It sits at mountain area so skip it if you are wishing to see beach. However, visit it if you want to see mountain, crater, hill, a bit of chilling weather.. it’s getting hotter over the years.

This time, i would like to share my visit Couple of years ago. Why 2016 feel so far away? i spent some days there with my bestie Nabila As’ad. She had this idea to go to Tahura ( Taman Hutan Raya ) so there we went! I wasn’t ready for a Hike. LOL. i didn’t even have sport shoes with me. I wore my flip flop while wishing she wouldn’t given up on me along the way.

I had to admit that the nature was sooo nice.  the weather was cool and the air was fresh. They have already made a pathway so the hike was quite manageable. It’s not only forest and rough path. There are some spots for you to enjoy the moment and to lose yourself in the amazement of your surroundings. You could choose different path which will lead you to several places far away..but don’t forget to try getting into the cave. It will send a bit of shiver on your shoulder. We call it as Japanese – cave one of the historical place during Japan’s ruling in Indonesia.

Afterwards, you could go deeper into the forest or just like us. stop there and enjoy the local delicacies! who can resist the food after an exercise? We need some boost to go down anyway.

Wish you were there and enjoying the scenery with us! Cheers! 😉
