What Kind of Traveler Am I?

Posted on: April 16, 2017

What kind of traveler am I? Sea girl, city, mountain, or what? I would say; I’m down with everything.

I always love the blue sea, the corals surrounded by colorful fishes, the sounds of the waves and the clear blue sky! The best sea I’ve been? No doubt: Santorini Greece! The best white sandy beach? I’d still say Phi-phi island, Thailand. And the best underwater? Menjangan and Belitung, both in Indonesia. I can barely wait for my upcoming trip to Gili Trawangan next week!

I also love the mountain breeze. The sounds of the river, birds, and the crickets at night! And I’ve never been in any place compares to Ubud, Indonesia. It’s just the best!

Now let’s talk about the cities. The skyscrapers, the exquisite architectural design, and of course, the shopping town! My favorite? Singapore. Tokyo is too crowded, Seoul’s smell is a bit too strong to me, and Hongkong is good, but it’s hard to find decent halal food (not to mention the affordable ones). The next big city I’m planning to explore is Paris. Not only the cities, I’m also planning to live and explore the villages in France too!

Other than the modern vibes of the cities, I’m also enjoying the heartwarming traditional and religious sites. The best one is of course Kabah in Mekah. Being there somehow made me feel like coming home! Umraj is definitely different with any other trip I’ve ever had. The mosques in Turkey are also lovely and I love them too. From other religions, the golden shrine in Kyoto is beautiful and the monasteries in Meteora Greece are mind blowing!

What about the activities? Oh I love doing so many things a trip has to offer.

I can spend all day in an amusement park. I’ll be there before it opens and I’ll only leave after it closes. The best amusement park? Universal Studio, Singapore. Disneysea Tokyo at the second place. I always love every amusement park I’ve ever been though. I’m even a big fan of Dufan Jakarta! Can’t wait for my first visit to Disneyland Paris end of this year!

Next up is shopping. It’s common to me to spend one whole day just to shop from one place to another. From traditional markets (the best one: Ladies Market, Hongkong and Damnoen Saduak, Thailand) to air conditioned shopping malls (my favorite: Platinum Fashion Mall, Thailand), and of course, the outlet for branded items: one in Johor Bahru Malaysia, Gotemba Japan, and Citygate Hongkong. Now I look forward to visiting La Valee Village in France!

Now let’s go to the museums. I’m that kind of person who takes my times in a museum. I enjoy reading every passage in Andrea Hirata museum, Belitung Indonesia, or reading all stories behind the heartbreaking pictures in Saigon war museum. And one more thing: the cutest Teddy Bear museum in Jeju (speaking of Jeju, it reminds me to other museum for adults, hehehehe). I love museum so much I’m planning to buy three days Museum pass in Paris! I’m pretty sure it will be the greatest museum experience ever!

And not to be missed: watching the live show! From traditional show in Greece (the Greek wedding live show!) or Japan (you know, the geisha apprentice show), until ladyboy cabaret show in Phuket. The funniest I’ve watched: Nanta Show, South Korea. The most breathtaking: between The House of Dancing Water in Macau and Phuket FantaSea in Thailand. Coming up next: Moulin Rouge cabaret show in France!

Finally, here’s one activity that I always love to do wherever and whenever I go: taking pictures and having fun with it. At first, I only loved to let someone else taking pictures of me, but lately, I also enjoy taking selfies and many other random pictures with my phone. It’s really the best camera phone ever!

See? There is no short answer to the question I wrote in this blog title! Or if I really have to describe my traveling type in a few words, here is my answer: I am simply a happy traveler 🙂 And by the way, I know that I mentioned France a couple of times in this post, and that’s only because I know that I’m gonna love every day I spend in that country!

I’m still looking for a travel mate by the way. Join me? Hehehehe.

I’m not a funny person. I’m not good at mingle with random people. I’m fierce, I’m a straight-talker, I get annoyed easily, and I have this resting b face that makes me look angry all the times. I’m not that kind of person whom people would miss when I’m not around.
But you know what?
I’m okay with all that flaws I have in me. Nobody is perfect, and neither am I. At the same time; everyone on earth is special, and so am I.
I know my worth. I know what I’m very good at. I know what I want and I work hard to make it happen. I’m a go getter and I fight my battles. I’m not an angel, but I’m not a devil either.
I was born to be the very best of myself, and just because I don’t always have what others have, it doens’t make me less as a person inside out. I’m whole just the way I am, and I’m beyond grateful of all that. I know that my career has been a bit of trouble for my personal life. I admit that it feels like a loss to me sometimes, but you know what? I don’t feel sorry about all that, not a even just a little bit.
My career has given me a comfort bed to sleep, taken me to the places I’ve never seen, brought me to the incredible people who end up as my best friends, and most importantly, it has really made my parents proud. I can sleep tight at night knowing that at least, I can support my parents after their retirements.
The way I see it, there’s nothing bad about all that, so why should anybody in my position feel sorry and less proud about their own hard works?
Don’t let anybody make you feel less than who you are. Make yourself and your loved ones proud, and for me, the rest doesn’t matter at all.
Be great, women! Whatever you choose to do for your own life, be great at it and don’t feel sorry for anything good in your life! Happy International Women’s day and stay awesome! My life has been going great in the past one month. Incredibly busy, but I can’t be happier.
I work my new job during the weekdays and work on my own start-up all over the weekends. It’s tiring and consuming all my energies, but it never feels like a hard work somehow.
I meet many people who are super friendly, I get to work with new challenges that test me every single thing I’ve learned in my entire career, and at the same times, I still manage to pursue my lifetime dream! For the first time ever, I understand how it feels like to love what I do that I never have to work a day in my life.
God, thank YOU for all these blessings! I often said I couldn’t ask for more, yet again, You gave me more and more reasons to be thankful over and over. I’m beyond blessed! Alhamdulillah.
