A journey to remember

Posts Tagged ‘Travelling Tips

Gue udah sering baca traveling tips standar soal pakai alas kaki yang nyaman, tata cara packing yang efisien dan masih banyak lagi… Traveling tips yang udah banyak bantu gue di masa-masa masih newbie beberapa tahun yang lalu. Kemudian kali ini, gantian gue sendiri yang kepingin berbagi traveling tips yang gue pelajari dari pengalaman gue pribadi. Siapa tahu, ini bisa jadi tips yang bermanfaat!

  1. Legging yang pas badan (jangan terlalu ketat) akan terasa lebih nyaman daripada celana jeans. Kalau mau pakai jeans, cari ukuran pas badan yang tidak memerlukan ikat pinggang. Tekanan dari ikat pinggang bisa bikin kita menjadi cepat pegal;
  2. Pilih koper dengan empat roda di bawahnya. Jika sudah punya koper roda empat, jangan dibawa dengan cara ditarik dari depan! Letakkan koper dengan posisi tegak sejajar di samping kita dan genggam ujung handle-nya sambil terus berjalan. Ini betul-betul menghemat tenaga lho;
  3. Bawa toiletries dan produk kecantikan lainnya dalam ukuran serba mini. Jangan membebani koper kita dengan cairan yang tidak akan habis selama perjalanan. Save your energy!
  4. Gunting kuku kaki sebelum perjalanan. Semakin sering kita berjalan kaki, semakin besar kemungkinan kuku kaki kita yang panjang itu melukai kulit jari lain yang berada persis di sebelahnya;
  5. Jika bepergian menggunakan sandal terbuka atau alas kaki lain yang tidak memerlukan kaus kaki, ada baiknya pakai body lotion dulu beberapa menit sebelum bepergian tiap harinya. Cukup efektif untuk mengurangi resiko kaki lecet;
  6. Tidak perlu jalan kaki terburu-buru. Atur jadwal perjalanan sedemikian rupa sehingga kita tidak perlu berjalan cepat untuk mengejar jadwal keberangkatan kereta, misalnya. Cukup jalan santai dan nikmati suasana kota!
  7. Hati-hati saat mengangkat dan membawa koper, jangan sampai koper kita itu membentur badan kita sendiri. Hal inilah yang seringkali tanpa kita sadari meninggalkan memar di badan kita ini;
  8. Selain obat untuk luka luar, jangan juga lupa bawa Counterpain atau yang sejenisnya. Ini ampuh banget untuk mengurangi rasa pegal;
  9. Harus tetap makan seperti biasa! Jika sudah terbiasa makan sehari 3 kali, maka mau seburuk apapun makanan di tempat liburan, kita tetap harus makan sehari 3 kali. It’s simply your basic need to help you surviving the day; dan
  10. Jika ada budget lebih, maka jangan pelit untuk membayar extra baggage di pesawat, terutama jika perjalanan kamu melibatkan multiple flights. Semakin lama kita berurusan dengan beban berat, maka kita akan semakin cepat merasa capek selama di perjalanan.

Save your energy, stay healthy, and enjoy your trip!

I used to read a quote written by my former lecture saying that even a bad decision would always be much better than no decision at all. It reminded me of the decisions I put on hold and I asked myself, “What prevents me from making all those decisions?” I could instantly listed down many personal reasons that didn’t even sound good to myself. So there I made a couple of decisions; the good ones and the bad ones, and apparently it was so true: even bad decision was still better than no decision at all. First of all, it helped me to move on. I no longer waited for this and that; I made decisions and I started to make the actions. It also gave me a peace of mind knowing that I owed nothing to anyone, not even to myself. And most importantly, all those decisions made me learn, notably the bad ones. It’s not that I intentionally made a bad one, but well, how did I know my decision was bad until I gave it a try? Ever since the day I decided to stop putting my decisions on hold, my life felt a lot lighter and I have never been more proud of myself. Other people might not be happy with my decisions, but I only do what I’ve got to do and they can’t blame me for having courage to do the things they’re not willing to do. If it holds me back and nobody wants to make the call, then let me do the honor. It’s actually that simple, and again, it sets me free.
My biggest career goal is always running my own business. I have been an entrepreneur even since I was a seven years old. I was never hesitate everytime I saw an opportunity to earn some cash to buy toys and comic books. Graduating from college and starting my first corporate job has stopped me from doing my own business. I was too busy to do something else beside my main job. I tried to run a small jewelry business but then I got bored. I came to learn that if I want to start a business, I have to do something bigger. But of course, a bigger scale own business will also require a bigger effort! The comfort of corporate job made me decide to postpone starting a new business until at some point, it was no longer comforting to me. I still remember one night I went home feeling extremely upset with my boss and I just told myself, “I can’t do this forever. I can do much better than working for a jerk.” Right at that moment, I decided to start my biggest dream: starting my own business. Not so long after that, @thelenstory was born.
There is this one little secret about @thelenstory. There was one particular guy who made me fall deeper with photography. He was so talented he could make an old dirty lamp look beautifully glow in his pictures. I still remember that day on a boat, he took pictures of me and he smiled behind his lens. That kind of smile that made me feel the prettiest girl on earth. I didn’t know why but I just loved seeing this guy holding his camera. I even still loved it when he took pictures of me with his grumpy face! At the end of the day, The Lens Story is way more than just a girl who fell in love. The ups and downs, and all lifetime savings that I’ve spent have been the greatest leap of faith I’ve ever taken in my entire life. That one guy from my past was just a starting point. He was my inspiration, he made me believe that there were many hidden talents like him out there and I would be more than happy to help them start their professional career in photography. That was the very beginning story on how my start-up was born, and to me, that will always be one of my favorite stories to tell.
