Stress “less” travel with the Java Train System

I never really understood the convenience of Peta Jalur Kereta Api Java until 1) I tried it and 2) I realized how big Java actually is. I didn’t need to constantly ask where the bus station/buses are or wonder if they’re tricking me or stopping at wrong destinations. As long as you’re awake when it arrives at your stop, you’re good. Here are the 3 memorable rides I took Continue reading Stress “less” travel with the Java Train System

yogyakarta: the beginnings of DYI-ing trips

i LOVED yogyakarta. not because of it’s famous temples, or the 1-hr away beaches, leather goods, or other tourist activities available. it’s because i did close to nothing there but sleep, walk a little bit, and making myself available to rabid mosquitoes.
