Bandung in a Nutshell

"Hello Bandung, long time no see you." That’s my unspoken Greeting to this city after my last visit almost 6 years ago. I lived in Jakarta for 5 years and a weekend getaway to Bandung was common things for us who live in Jakarta. My 2016's impression toward Bandung, it is extremely different from many years ago. Today's Bandung is polluted, not as cold as it used to be, and .. crazy traffic jam here and there, almost similar to Jakarta. Why of why, Bandung..

Good Morning, Bromo

As the sun goes up... around 6 or 7 am, I went down to the foot of Mt.Penanjakan. When I climbed up the mountain early morning, It needs alot of energy... when I walked down from the peak, ... it's easier... :) While walking down I met some visitors like me, Edelweiss sellers, locals and horses.

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.

Travel Journal; Exploring Bromo

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.
