The Wonders of Borobudur Temple

Been there twice in a year! On my recent trip to Central Java, I visited Borobudur Temple in the early hours to catch the sunrise. Without many tourists around in the morning, the whole atmosphere was calm and surreal. I could count with my fingers how many times I really got up very early for sunrise photography. Such trips like this is worth sacrificing some sleep to catch the magical sunrise. Silhouette of the stupas during sunrise.  The morning...

Sunrise at Mount Bromo

Categories : Travelings - Hiking, Trekking, and Eco

My alarm went off at 2:30. In what I consider to still be the middle of the night. We met, bleary eyed and only half alert, at 3 AM to climb with our already-aching bones into Jeeps that were made before I was born. It wasn't a great beginning. I love a good sunrise, but I kept questioning in my...

Looking into a Volcano at Mt Bromo

Did you ever wonder what it would be like to look inside of a volcano? At Indonesia’s Mt. Bromo, you can see for yourself. The journey begins in Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park, in the far east of Java. We arrived at our hotel the day before and rested up for a middle-of-the-night departure for sunrise. After sunrise we took jeeps across the sand sea and hiked up Mt. Bromo. Here, some chose to ride horses up the volcano side. The hike wasn’t...
