In early March last year, when the winter has faded out but yet spring hasn’t show its face, I spent several weeks living in Japan. It was my first time stepping my own feet in the country and no doubt, I was beyond excited given the fact that I could experience a new culture in another part of the world.
I did observe things during my stay. I watched how people interact with each other, how they behave, how they do things.
This post is not going to be a travel guide or a food review. It’s more like a photo essay, when I put my photos from Japan here with a short description for each one. Just simply because…
It was an unusual Saturday morning for me. I woke up early at 6, took a quick shower, brewed my coffee, and off I went to Agritektur office at Jl. Mataram, Bandung. I’ve been waiting for that particular day for sooo long. Yes, it’s the ‘CAMP ON FARM’ day!
As you can guess from the name of the event, we were having a camp at Dago Dairy Farm that day. It’s a lovely local farm at the north side of Bandung, in Buniwangi Wetan area.
Remember about my last trip in downtown Tokyo a month ago? Well, aside from the busy & crowded Tokyo, now we’re heading southwest to an area called Hakone.
Imagine this : a blue sky, a lake with Mt. Fuji at the background, a red shrine gate, and of course, the mountainous scenes. That what makes Hakone area one of the most popular resorts in Japan, I think.
Turkish cuisine is considered to be one of the most varied and exciting in the world. Traditional Turkish food uses flavorsome natural ingredients and a fragrant mix of delightful herbs and spices which appeal to a range of different international palates. Turkish culinary tradition tends to bridge the gap between Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine through an impressive selection of typical national dishes.
Italy has always been famous for its food. People eat pizza and pasta and drink Italian red wine all around the world. But there is a lot more to discover than those tasty dishes. Tuscany, a region in the centre of Italy, in particular offers lots of different tastes and some of the best products you can get. The food alone makes Tuscany worth a visit anytime.
I know summer is coming to an end, real quick. People are starting to wear sweater and boots here. And although the sun still shines so bright in the morning, the rain always seems to pour at noon.
And… before these precious memories of mine lost forgotten, I want to share a summary, I guess, of my favorite place, my favorite foods, and the activities I used to have last summer. This is just another informal mini travel guide about Bali which you can easily find in the internet. But mine is a lil bit personal. You know, I’m not a travel-expert. Not even closed to be one. I don’t get to explore every inches of Bali. That’s obvious. I just happened to live there, enjoying the island the way I like.
If you’ve heard people talking about Ubud, it must be something about the spa, the yoga, the meditation, the art, the rice paddle, I don’t know… And people who are looking for inner peace, let’s say, will probably stay in Ubud for like 3 days or a week, just to get the feel of the place and relax a little bit and forget about all the works & problems they’ve been through.Lanjutkan membaca “Ubud in One Day – My Way”
Going to the zoo has always been exciting for me. No matter how many animals they got in there, I just love walking around and taking a closer look of the animals.
I remember my first zoo visit in my hometown, Jambi. The zoo is really badly maintained. I’m not even sure if there is any maintenance. It’s like you would think that the zoo will be closing really soon. They only got several animals, like elephants, Sumatran tigers, ostrich, some snakes, monkey, and a couple of wild boar. And I don’t even know why they put some pigs in there. It’s like, pig is not even a rare animal, is it?Lanjutkan membaca “Beijing Zoo”
