Wanted to share with you my article on safe travels during mudik, which was published in the Jakarta Globe. Mudik is a unique annual tradition in Indonesia, where millions travel back to their hometowns ahead of the Idul Fitri celebration. http://www.thejakartaglobe.com/business/safe-travels-mudik/
Cheers! Have a safe, happy travel. I’ll be in China for the holiday.
Excited to finally complete my diving certification and try out these new googles this weekend! I’ll be going underwater at the Thousand Islands, which is conveniently just an hour boat ride from Jakarta. Looking forward to make some new friends under the sea and recharge from the busy city life. Where is your favorite place to go diving in Indonesia?
Amazing photo and story on unique Indonesian traditions:
9 native Indonesians praying in front of the ancient Pura Luhur Poten temple, which holds a significant importance to the Tenggerese tribe, to ask for blessings in Mount Bromo. On the 14th day, the Tenggerese congregate at Pura Luhur Poten to ask for blessings from Ida Sang Hyang Widi Wasa and the God of Mahameru (Mount Semeru). Then the crowd proceeds along the crater edges of Mount Bromo where offerings are thrown in the crater.
