One of my dream is travelling around the world. i have joined so many milist about travelling, follow backpacker blog, read news about travelling. i think it is a good preparation before i go there. hehe.. and now i have list that i have to do. lets see some of them.
Couchsurfing – “CouchSurfing is not about the furniture, not just about finding free accommodations around the world; it’s about making connections worldwide.” Every traveller must be familiar with couchsurfing. If you want to go abroad and you do not have a friend or family there, you should join couchsurfing. by join it, we can get ‘free’ accomodation provided by someone that we do not know until we meet them. Just register on their website and choose your country and city destination. Wait a moment, you will get notification that someone can give you accomodation. We not only get ‘free’ accommodation but also a new friend and a good guide. nice isn’t it?
Mitfahren – Only in German you can drive without limit in expressway (Autobahn). You can drive above 200km/h. Wow.. So, what is Mitfahren? It is not about how to drive really2 fast. Mitfahren is travelling by joining in stranger car. hmm.. Creepy? Dont worry, Mitfahren is safe. It is an option if we do not have enough budget to get train. So how can we get in into someone car? By waving our hand in the air? Noo.. it is not in Indonesia. He.he. Mitfahren has a website. Just put your itenerary, and voila there will be some people offering their car with same direction. After that you send him an email and negotiate. It will be a nice trip, you can add someone else to your friend list. Mitfahren can give you experience with Autobahn, of course you have to choose a man with Porsche. hehe..
Onsen – Onsen is a bathing facility and inns around the hot spring. As we know, Japan has very very cold air, so if we can combine the cold and hot, it must be awesome. But it is not the uniqueness of onsen. the most famous thing of onsen is, we can bathing together. barely naked. hihihi. some of them let man and woman bathing together, but there is also onsen just for man and for woman. i think it is really cool if we get off the privacy sometime :P . Prepare yourself with poker face and keep your ‘stuff’. *kidding. For Japaneese, bathing together unwearing anything can make us feel togetherness without social status. wise philosophy.
Trans Siberian – I do love train. I think, train is the safest transportation and the most comfortable. One of the famous train is Trans Siberian. Trans Siberian is known as the longest train-line. It is connecting Moskwa – Eorope and also China, Japan, Mongolia. It’s line length is 9,289 km. So you can imagine how long we can travel with this train. Actually, if we start from St.Petersburg to get Beijing, we need 25 days. Wow.. Dont worry of being bored, they said that we can see plenty beatifull scenery, with different city. Anyway, we need to pay about 65 million rupiahs to get the ticket. And of course we have to spare enough time, a mount maybe.
Work & Holiday visa – Want to escape from your job? Carrer break? Travelling but do not have enough money? You should try this. Work & Holiday Visa. This program is a cooperation program between two country that allow their citizen to go abroad for a year. For example, we can go to Autralia for a year without money. Really? yap, except for ticket and visa. But it is only about 4 million rupiahs. So, how can be live there without money? This is the challenge. We have to work in a city to get some money, saving, and then go travelling to nice place. If your pocket has no money get another job. About 1 or 2 months. how about the job? Have i work behind the table? NO, you can work as waitress, teacher, freelance designer, everything.
