(Passion of Traveling) February - March 2010

Hopefully next year, in 2010, I can give myself a big treat by traveling around Java and some part of Nusa Tenggara Timur (eastern part of Indonesia) . I am still searching for some info's, but haven't bought or booked anything yet because still waiting for my graduation.
So, I'll start my journey in February and here's my estimated schedule
10 - 28 February: Nusa Tenggara Timur (Kupang, Flores Island, and Sumba Island)

I am thinking to go to Sumba in February because in this month and also March, they usually have a very cultural yet particular event in West Sumba called Pasola, which is an ancient war ritual festival by two groups of selected Sumbanese men. They ride their colorful decorated selected horses fling wooden spears at each other. This traditional ceremony held in the way of uniquely and sympathetically traditional norms. (from

Around March: Tegal and Pekalongan (still thinking of other cities)

Though, I like traveling alone, but you're welcome to join me, because that way makes it less expensive. Later in January, I'll post the exact itinerary and estimated budget for each destination. So get your backpack ready! =)

What's next on 2010?

2009... New Year... New Dreams need to be fulfilled... I'd made some and believe that God will help me finding the way to achieve long as I keep struggling and fighting. These are my objectives of the year:
1. Graduating from college

2. Traveling abroad at least once

3. Finding out what I want to do in the future for living
Hopefully by the end of this year, those will be already accomplished...Crossing my fingers!

On the 1st of January 2009, I wrote the above entry and you know
what? None of them I had accomplished in 2009. However, I think this year, I can and I surely will. In fact... I can check the first one out of the list, because finally... after that pretty damn (too) long period of college, I graduated some days ago. So it left me with the other two, traveling abroad and job. Well, it's still March and I think I already on my way to get them or at least one of them, so I think this year is gonna be great. Just wait for my next entries, maybe I'm gonna add the list more... So exciting!
