Whoever has came or lived in Porto must be familiar with the sentence, “No photo PLEASEEEE!!!!” at the world’s third most beautiful bookstore, Livraria Lello e Irmão. Being notable as the bookstore that inspired JK Rowling for her infamous Harry … Continue reading
When I decided to choose University of Porto for my master’s study, I didn’t do any research about the city itself. Few months after, oddly enough, who would have known that
Many of my Indonesian friends who saw pictures of me on social media said, “You look thinner! Tell me your secrets!”
The secrets are…
I have to tell you about my last getaway to Andalusia. Not exactly about the places (which undoubtedly beautiful), but about some unexpected events happened during my trip. This trip was planned, of course. It was just that some events concurred in their own ways that made me & Martha, my travel mate, questioned: Were those only coincidences? or, fates?
OK, let me tell you how it began.
After my friend, Bilqis, knew that my Erasmus Mundus application got accepted, she lend me her 99 Cahaya Islam di Langit Eropa (99 Islamic Lights on the Sky of Europe) book to me. She “forced” me to Continue reading
We just happened to have many inspiring friends around us or met new friends who has done many things in life that we could learn the positive ways of their experiences. That’s what inspired me to write about [OMG! Inspiring Friends] series.
For the first episode, I got the chance to have a gossippy girls talk with Tri Wuri, whom I usually call Ntir, a consultant-slash-traveller who always challenge herself to grab those conferences opportunities to travel around the world in such a young age (plus, expand her network and skills). I haven´t met her for ages so having this interview and our Skype gossip sessions were indeed…awe-inspiring!
We chatted with our mother language, Bahasa Indonesia, of course! But no worry, English translation is available here: You can read the sentences in oranges x)
(psst, we didnt talk about people. We talked about..places!)
How could she travel around the world by writing papers? Curious? Let’s hear her story here ;)
It has been quite a long time I didn’t post about culinary places and jrengjrengjreeeng… with lots of pleasure, I want to introduce you to my most favourite ice cream cafe in Europe (so far!), Heladería La Fiorentina! I knew this place after I did a quick google before my trip to Seville, Spain. Looking for cool places to taste locals’ foods is indeed my must-do activity for every travel.
I considered myself lucky to find this place. At that time, I was traveling solo on my first day in Seville because Martha hadn’t arrived yet. When I looked on the address of this heladería, I was like… Continue reading

I know I just came back from my Andalusia trip but then I already thought of my summer trip. but travel has been a new addiction for me. Once you start, you cannot stop. Today was the hardest day at the office (imagining you wake up early after your long and long happy and full-of-sunshine holiday) and I coincidentally saw pictures of Iceland. Blah! Not a good idea because I start wondering my Icelandic (and Norwegian) breathtaking trip. In summer! August, yes, August, please. After my thesis defense.
Oh ok! Thesis. A deadly word for now. Gotta get back to my thesis now. Bye and see you. Hasta luego! (I am still on my Spanish mode :p)
PS. If after reading this blahblah post, you are interested about Iceland. Let’s do a high five! and high five to my classmate from Brazil, Thiago, who talked almost everyday about Iceland. Obrigada, Thiago! You know I should blame you for this, haha x) and I want to meet my friend, Birna, and her cute family there. Oh pleaseeeee, I hope I really can manage to visit Iceland.
I have one postcard of the Mezquita-Catedral de Córdoba with a special stamp of it also. This magnificent building was a mosque and converted into a Cathedral.
Quick question: the building went through four stages of construction. Please name four Moslem leaders during each construction stage (in order).
I will send it to you directly from Córdoba tomorrow morning by 09.00 CET.
Muchas gracias, amigos! x)
