Bertualang di Alam Liar Australia Barat

Oleh Maria Serenade Sinurat

Musim panas perdana saya di Australia adalah musim panas yang sulit dilupa. Bersama dua kawan petualangan dan sebuah mobil sewaan, kami menyusuri pesisir Australia Barat yang membawa kami menuju Kalbarri, kota yang terletak 550 kilometer di sebelah utara Perth. Dari kota pesisir yang berdiam di muara Sungai Murchison inilah petualangan bermula.

Cherry Picking-Asyiknya Memetik Buah Cherry

Musim telah berganti. Udara cerah mulai mewarnai Melbourne seiring masuknya musim panas. Aktivitas di luar rumah pun kembali diminati. Sayang sekali rasanya melewatkan akhir pekan di rumah saja, sementara udara cerah tidak bisa dinikmati sepanjang tahun di Melbourne. Tapi kemana ya? Untunglah tujuan wisata di seputar Victoria sangat beragam. Tidak membosankan dan selalu ada pilihan.

From Aceh to Jakarta: Sam’s Motorcycle Adventure

In support of the Victorian Heart Foundation, I undertook a motorbike journey during August and September of this year. I have always been a keen motorcycle rider, especially while living in Indonesia. I had spent six months studying at Gadjah Mada University, during which time, I took to the roads of Central Java for a few nights at a time. However, this trip would be substantially more arduous and risky.  (more…)

Two Weeks in Paradise: Lombok and Gili

Indonesia first presented itself to me when I was seven years old. Within a week of my first school Indonesian lesson, meeting my charismatic teacher from Jawa and discovering the delicacy that was steaming-hot mie goreng, I was hooked. In 2014, I spent five months in Jogja, Jawa, whilst completing a semester of advanced Indonesian at the University of Gadjah Mada (UGM). Translation: weeknights at Happy Puppy Karaoke, sampling unusual mushroom dishes, epic conversations with strangers whilst waiting out heavy downpours, and frequent getaways to a new exotic location. Read on for details about my memorable trip to Lombok and Gili in May. (more…)

Indonesia is My Second Home

 Indonesia is my second home. Whenever I am away too long, I begin to relive memories, picture places and feel and smell the humid air. I have lost count of the times I have found myself sitting in class in Melbourne drifting back to hour-long tours (taxi rides) of Jakarta, particularly when it’s a cold wet Melbourne day like today. I can’t remember the first time I visited Indonesia as a very small child. When I was very young, Indonesia was so special to me because it was full of not only friendly familiar faces but also a constant stream of warm encounters with strangers. My memories have blurred together, running through every season of my life with Indonesia a constant element. (more…)

“Jalan-Jalan Across Indonesia”

After graduating from 5.5 years of university study in August 2013 and beginning my first full-time job the following Monday, I felt everything was finally coming together for me. Unfortunately by Mid-October I was unemployed once again. I knew something had to change and I was jaded by life in Melbourne. So, I decided I would travel to Indonesia and experience life in a foreign land as different as possible from Australia. In hindsight, it was the best decision of my life and here’s my story!

Want To Experience Something Different? Try Flores

Traditionally Australian tourists when travelling to Indonesia only visit the islands of Bali and Java, but why not try something different? In January, this year my girlfriend and I set off to Flores to visit a part of Indonesia rarely frequented by Aussies. Here’s our Flores story. What will yours be? (more…)
