When I saw this week‘s challenge, I was excited almost immediately. It is about reflection and I just happen to have plenty of pictures that portray reflections (this post even featured a photo of reflections). Here’s one of them.
This is my take on Birmigham Canal.
Another week, another challenge. Again, I take this as a great way to showcase some photographs that I took sometime ago. This time, I have decided to show two photographs that I took in an island that is very close to my heart. I lived in this island during the first eleven years of my life and the city, which is featured in these two photographs, was very a important one throughout those years.
I recently found out about Weekly Writing Challenge and decided to accept this week’s challenge. It is about telling a story based on three photographs. I looked through the pictures that I took awhile ago and thought that this would be a great way to post them. Here are my three photographs.
All photographs were taken in Tanjung Puting National Park, Central Kalimantan, Indonesia. I went on a three-day boat trip to experience a little bit of rainforest and to see some orangutans. It was one of the biggest eye-opening trips I have ever been.
I was going to start writing about my Half-Round the World Trip and then I suddenly remembered about this weekend trip that I did with my beloved sister, Alia, and my two close friends, Asti and Ayu.
When daily life gets boring, Wellington would be a door to the fantasy world. Despite the unpredictable weather and the extremely strong wind, Wellington has many things to offer. Amongst the great outdoor adventures and fascinating collection of New Zealand’s faunas, one of the most recommended things to do in Wellington would be the movie tour, especially the Lord of the Rings movie tour.
It’s been a tradition for me and my family to get together every new year.
This fact bugs my sister a lot of time, because she -as many teenagers do- would prefer to be with her friends.
So, to solve any problem, we usually go abroad to celebrate it.
Last/this year, (it’s kinda hard to distinguish when you travel at the end of the year) we went to Sydney and Wellington.
It was not our first visit to Sydney and we were still so much in love with the city. But I’m gonna dwell on Sydney a little later.
Wellington was something new for all of us, so we were excited.
When we first got to the Wellington airport, we were almost lost.
The New Zealand’s English was so very hard to understand. If you think Australians talk funny, try listening to New Zealanders. They talk even funnier!
(Although I met a local girl and she denied it, through and through)
Tulisan ini kalau ditilik-tilik agak nyambung dikit sama tulisan saya yang sebelumnya, walaupun tadinya intensinya gak seperti itu.
Jadi ya, selain jalan-jalan, keluarga saya juga suka sekali makan-makan, terutama makan sepuasnya.
Karena hobi kami sekeluarga sama, kami sering nyoba-nyoba berbagai tempat makan seru di Jakarta. Termasuk restoran-restoran di hotel-hotel bintang lima.
Sekarang ini saya mau sedikit membahas asiknya makan di hotel-hotel bintang lima di Jakarta.
Pembahasan ini diurutkan secara acak ya.
After the 6 hours bus ride from Madrid, Lisa and I arrived in – some people say – the most stylish city in the world, Barcelona.
When we first arrived, after not creating any booking in any hostels (because we thought the super long weekend was over) and not finding any girl hosts in Couch Surfing, we had to walk all over the city (again) to find a decent lodging.
We first arrived at what we thought the famous La Rambla.
Soon, after not finding anyone but immigrants and one or two tourists, we decided the place was not La Rambla.
After asking around to numerous people, walking for about two hours (with our backpacks and luggages), checking out number of hostels, we finally found a decent lodging, called the Principal Surf BCN, in just off the street of La Rambla.
I would never forget the day I arrived in Madrid.
It was a Sunday, October 10, 2010, a Columbus Day weekend.
I arrived on the super long weekend, when the Spanish people started their holiday on Thursday and did not go back to work until the following Wednesday.
The long weekend was ridiculously long.
The next destination on my Small Trip was Lisbon, Portugal.
I found that it was not that easy to get to Lisbon when you’re on a budget and on a tight schedule. Sure there were (more than) 24 hour-long buses that will go directly to Lisbon.
But I mean, who would want to sit on a bus for 24 hours? Not me, definitely.
I think there were also budget airlines to go directly to Lisbon, or a non-budget airlines that sell cheap last-minute tickets.
But Lisa and I decided to take Ryan Air. The cheapest budget airlines I have ever found!
