B.A.D E.X.P.E.R.I.E.N.C.E.S :
Arienz / Ree Nee (Bandung Indonesia) what ever she did in her old profile or in her new profile (deleted or exist) in CS, FB, Tagged or in any kind of social sites, is not my responsibility. Im not her sister (using my name as her sister to take some money to travel to Bangkok). Im not her close friend (using my name to her mom that she is travel or work with me in Jakarta or China, in fact she is travel to met her bf in china for 3 weeks), and I never work together with her in Jakarta, China or in anywhere. Thanks to make me lost money by your fake agency, 2 million rupiahs and 150 USD is a lot. If you are her bf, don't ask me about her, because I don't know anything about her pass life. I just know her in short time with so many troubles.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
*** my travel resolution at 2010 in China is DONE...!
I did solo backpacking and visited 20 countries in a year (2011)
*** when I opened my wood cabin window near the forest at Kalimantan, I found so many monkey, orang utan, wawa (small monkey) roaster, ect... around my place... Bird are singing and the smell of wet grass make me feel peace..
*** Sleeping on the dark of desert under a thousands stars in Sahara Morocco in my solo backpacking... So lovely... always missed that moment...
*** trekking to the mountain, because im scare of highest... still tried to face my fear... ;-)
* Semeru East Java Indonesia (the highest mountain in Java)
* Bromo East Java Indonesia
* Barme Firooz (the 2nd highest mountain in Shiraz Iran)
*** still alive & survive after trapped in minus 2 celsius degree about 4hrs, in outside of Chiampino airport Rome, because the airport closed at 12am... and open at 6am >_<
*** Swimming with shark in Karimun Jawa Islands Indonesia
*** Got silver medal as an martial arts teen athlete at national competitions 1988
*** I decide to visit desert (sahara) in Morocco.... but I trapped at night with a man whom taking care of his 20 camels... he bring me to the Barbarian Camp after 2hrs ridding camel...
I dont know why... somehow I'm not feel afraid at that time... there is only sands at anywhere, dark, and 20 camels plus a guy whom possible to kill me any time.. or maybe snake desert love to hit me as well.... anyway... Im ready to die at that time.... and decide to enjoy may dark journey at Sahara desert... lol...
*** Being survive in my trip a month coz somebody invite me to visit the country, but that person (invitee) disappear when all the ticket booked. One of my trip that I have lots of tears drop....
*** The most of great experience in 1998 when I went to Kalimantan (Borneo) with all of my wet t-shirt & stuff on my backpack (Im not finished washing yet), coz of I decided to go to Kalimantan for 10 minutes after my friends ask me, "Risa, you want to go to Kalimantan? I give you 10 minutes to decide..!" she leave me and back again after 10 minutes, I said "YES" then go to Kalimantan by boat after 20 hrs I decided, I hvn't prepare anything for 2 weeks travel, but finally I back home after 2 months lol.
*** Besides Kalimantan, Im also visit Surabaya, Bali & Lombok.. and stay at NIkko Hotel Bali for free just coz of I help somebody who I know him as a supplier in that Hotel... I never know him before anyway, just try to help him to find the way to Denpasar... all not in my agenda except to visit Kalimantan.
*** The nice things also.. when I lost my travel-mate friends, we used boat from Kalimantan to Surabaya... I lost her until trapped in the captain's room, and finally he (captain) allow us (3persons)to stay at captain's room and have a chance to try to drive the big boat wid 1200 persons capacity hehe.. just for the information that I got deck (economy) ticket, and just available to sit down on the deck (floor) for 25 hrs.. but finally I stayed at captain's room with all of captain's facilities... huuummm...
*** Mostly in my journey (travels) I met somebody who need my help to do something & pay me for reward, it‘s cheaper for them but help me to pay my next trip … hehe...
I don't know why... I believe & feel... that the angels always around the travelers.... I call them my TRAVEL ANGEL...
And I love to met my TRAVEL ANGEL again and again... ;-)
happy safe traveling every body ^__^
