Let’s go!

Seven weeks to go, and off to the east of the world I fly…

It has been 11 years since I visited my Dad’s Home Country. Indonesia.

Three weeks I tell ya is not enough. In the daily routine you experience week after week, a craving to leave comes over you. Then three weeks, seems good enough. But any visit to the world, because it’s so big, cannot be done in three weeks. They say that it takes 21 days for a human to get used to something, whereafter it becomes a habit. Either a new addiction, or something you want to lose. Of course, of course, heartbreaks are an exception. That can take 21 years to get over! I am talking about habits. The border of going just three weeks on vacation is actually a punch in the face, to find yourself back again at work. But you will crave for more and shall understand how important it is to “get away” to “relax”. Most of the time a vacation isn’t relaxed, but you get to do what you want to do. You are free.

So I want to soak up as much of Indonesia as I can. At least a big part of it. (It’s just too big!) When landed in Jakarta, we’ll stay there a day or two to acclimatize ourselves. Then we drive off to the mountains. See some rice fields along the way in Puncak, visit some family in Bandung. Down to the temples in Borobudur, we probably check out a(n active) volcano, before we arrive in Yogya. There we hop on a plane to Lombok to chillax the fuck out, some more in Gili Islands. Off on a boat to Bali, then back to Jakarta. Bam. I shall arrive in Winter in Amsterdam.

I cannot wait to go…
