About Me

I am Indonesian and I am proud about it. I started love to travel since 2011. Before that I am just an ordinary homeboy. After I enter to university, I met a lot new friends from all over Indonesia and it opens my eyes. And I started to explore Java, Bali, Flores, love to hike a mountain and meet new friends from all over the world.
