Why are you interested in starting a blog?

In the past, my blog was filled with stories from high school students, something like diary so. Then when I first started traveling, I wrote just as a memory.

To remember that I’ve been to that place, I’ve done something in that place. Basically I want to share experiences and information about interesting things I’ve tried.

The second reason, I used to want to take part in a competition to win a prize to Japan, the requirement is to have an active blog for at least 3 months with a minimum of 10 articles.

Unfortunately at that time I was just starting a blog, so I didn’t take part in the competition. But I believe one day blogs can take me to other places.

Moment traveling, I always carry sunglasses and a hat. In addition to protecting ourselves from the sun, these two objects can support our appearance. I also always carry outfit white wherever I go because it’s a neutral color and easy to mix and match.

We should also survey the destination and adjust outfit which will be used so that it does not saltum. I also brought sling bag a small box that usually contains a cellphone, wallet, ticket, passport (if going abroad), and an ID card, making it easier to store and retrieve when needed.
