I started my absurd journey when I get a job as a news reporter. That title bring me fantastic opportunities of having experience I've never imagine before.

Grown as a hard news journalist, I mostly dealt with politics and natural disaster. During my time on the field, a lot of natural disaster occurred in Indonesia, and I usually the one got the phone call when it happened.

I never regret being a hard news journalist, I enjoy it so much, it brought me everywhere, from interviewing vice president of Indonesia, seeing the bad situations in the slums area, run when the volcano erupted, see the rapid building constructions in Angola, and even met and saw sad stories during my coverage in Afghanistan.

I fell in love to a lot of things, the experience and the travel. Then I got my feet into the travel world without even notice, I remember start diving on 2010 then suddenly I got involved a lot on hosting travel program in my office. On mid 2011 I was fully hosting the travel program, a drastic change from hard news to travel documentary which is have to be fun, compared to my serious assignments before.

I got my feet right and just felt comfortable instantly traveling from one place to another. I started to share my experience, writes about it and share a lot.

On September 2012 I resigned. A big step from me to reach my silly dreams. A lot might wonder why I did that, for now I can say I simply did that because I want to travel as me, myself and share as much as I can, through blog, websites, magazines, anything possible. I love traveling so much and I can't explain it, too much reasons. I simply fell in love, to travel, to the journey and experiences. Since then, I started posting a lot of stories in this blog.

Now I consider myself fully blogging, it's been more than 4 years but I do still learning each day. Some also wonder how do I pay for my trip, well, I consider myself lucky to have sponsors, advertisers and endorsements. Some of my trip are still on my own expense, sometimes you just wanna go out, travel as free as you can.

I know what I did might not be forever, but I know for sure that when I have to stop this life and maybe still have trips not as often as nowadays, I won't regret since I've done all efforts to reach and do what I love.

I'll keep on posting, that's a promise to myself and you who read this. When you visit my blog, that's already a support for me, thanks for reading and hopefully you'll have the same excitements as I have, hopefully by reading this you will see there are places outside, waiting to be found and loved.

You don't have to be a hardcore traveler to enjoy the journey, just walk outside, take a trip and let all your senses brings fantastic experience for you to remember years and years and years after.

These shoes are made for walking. If you don't have shoes go barefoot. If you don't have feet, God will provide you tools or a helping companion.
