Hello from Soekarna Hatta Airport domestic terminal Gate 2 Garuda Jakarta to Yogyakarta.
I and my cousin are off to Yogyakarta today. This will be my third time visiting the cultural center of Java Island, Indonesia. The first time when I was 2yo and the second one was when I was 17yo. I have no recollection of the first time other than my toddler with too much attitude picture which is now displayed in my dad’s home office. And I only have vague memories of the second time around: it was during a school trip, I was roaming around the city with my best friend, Pepeth, and that we got scolded for not keeping our voices down.
Why visit Yogyakarta again?
Why Borobudur of course! Borobudur has been on my travel list since 2014. 2 years! And to think that it’s only 2 hours away shows that I am not a good travel planner. Other than Borobudur, we have lots of catching up with another cousin who lives there and a bit of batik shopping in our minds.
Do you think we should be anything else? Let me know and let me know soon since we are there only for the weekend.
Btw, weekend getaways are pretty fun! You should consider doing it if you can’t or don’t feel like doing a long term trip at the moment. Evidently, I got to squeeze three trips this month, Singapore, Bandung, and now Yogyakarta without taking a day off from work.
