From Probolingo to Bromo

At 3 AM, I woke up to get ready for capturing sunrise via Mount Penanjakan, to see sunrise emerged from the back of Mt.Bromo. I hope the weather is great, no raining or cloudy. When I was about to go out for sunrise, .. I met three of western guests who stayed next to my room. Two males, one female, I met them before when I had a small chat with two Vietnamese girls sat next to our table at cafe. Listened to their language.. well, they speak German.

While having breakfast at my hostel cafe, I met two Vietnamese girls. I just arrived at Cemoro Lawang, then I joined them exploring Semeru National Park by Jeep. So, we shared the jeep rental together. I paid around 100.000 rupiah to them, cheaper than I rent a jeep by myself only. It's great, meeting another travelers from different country on my solo journey.When we travel alone, we can do and decide whatever we want to do

Travel Journal; Bali

It's the last day in Bali before leaving for Probolingo city, East Java. I didn't take a bus to travel out of island but I took a travel agent bus. It's cheaper than I travel by taxi first, and reach inconvenience Ubung Terminal. After elaborating the prices, if I took a bus, at first I need to pay around 60.000 rupiah taxi fee from Kuta to Ubung Terminal, Denpasar. Then, 150.000 rupiah for bus to Probolinggo, so, all together becomes 210.000 rupiah. The conclusion, taking travel agent bus is cheaper than taking a public bus at bus station, it's only 150.000 rupiah from Kuta, including ferry at Gilimanuk to Java island.

I was in Denpasar, however, I had no idea what to do there. I went to Ubung Terminal to ask about bus schedule from Denpasar to Probolingo, my next destination after Bali. At bus station, people were very aggressive offering me bus ticket without letting me to be calm a while from my journey, Kuta to Denpasar. Honestly, I dislike this situation. There's something wrong with system in Indonesia where things go chaotic and inconvenience.

Travel Journal; Sanur Beach

Yes One week already .. I've stayed in Bali, I then made a plan to travel to Sanur beach. Sanur beach is famous with its beautiful sunrise view, but I don't really care, I wasn't able to make it on sunrise so I found how to get there from Kuta in cheaper way. Please no taxi or rent a car... I'm a backpacker, I tried to minimize my expenses as cheap as I can.

Travel Journal, Uluwatu without a tour

After spending 6 days in Bali, it's time for beautiful sunset in Uluwatu, the southern part of Bali. From Kuta, I took a taxi to send me to Uluwatu road.. It's not really far and doesn't cost me much for taxi fee. Arrived on Uluwatu road, there's a minivan bus named Serbagita stopped waiting for passengers. I approached them to get information if any, Is this a bus to Uluwatu?? They replied correct, and when I asked how much does it cost to Uluwatu..

After spending one night at Ngurah Ray airport, I took an ojek to send me to a hotel at Tuban area. It's recommendation from a waiter I had some small chats at MacDonald. When I arrived at the hotel he mentioned... yeee, I'm not interested at all. It's just not my cup of tea, ... it's located quite far from the beach, the room rate is unreasonable from what its offer, no WiFi and far from tourist sites.
