I decided to write a very special post about my friends’ all girl backpacking adventure. It has been a month of vacation for us senior high school seniors and for the lucky ones who already got in unis can really have quality time. In this post I’m featuring 7 of my friends: Fanka, Mereditha, Dian, Marin, Indi, Jelin, Yodia that had spent 10 days backpacking to beautiful spots on the island of Java. They spent 10 days and from their pics, you could really tell they had a BLAST. I applaude them for being thoughtful and pick places that aren’t quite commercial but still have captivating beauty. If you see the pics (and all the facebook albums that probably have hundreds of photos) it’s as if there aren’t any people around. They say they visited ‘spots’ that aren’t crowded so they really enjoyed their visits. Three of them are mad about photography so they brought their SLR professional cameras and they really took the chance to hunt for amazing shots. The girls went backpacking to Central Java, two of my friends continued the backpacking quest to Bali. All of the pictures below were taken by my friends so please do not misuse them. (oh yeah, believe it or not the photos below are not retouched nor edited so it’s real hard core natural beauty)
The adventure had its ups and downs but overall they say that it was soo much fun. Backpacking around Java (especially with a bunch of great friends) is an inexpensive and adventurous way of travelling. For example in Karimun Jawa (the island) they stayed at a nice inn for Rp55.000,00 about 5 USD and 50 cents. To really minimize expenses, in Solo and Jogjakarta they spent the night at Ditha’s grandmother’s house.
I plan to complete this post after I finish interviewing my friends about their adventure. So keep checking my blog for updates because all the details about the journey are coming up. Just think of these pics as an ‘appetizer’ to the main course, the story of one great adventure.
