This particular word from English vocab probably is the best word that describe me once I put my feet in Europe. Eropa itu terlalu menyenangkan untuk tidak dijelajahi!! Karena begitu kamu sampai di Eropa, begitu kamu memegang VISA Schengen, atau bahkan temporary residence card, voilaaa… Ide-ide traveling bermunculan, berbagai negara bisa dikunjungi tanpa biaya Visa lagi. Dan seperti yang sudah saya ceritakan di sini, traveling di Eropa itu mudah, dan ramah bagi kantong mahasiswa tentunya 😀
Jadi, saya punya goal untuk 2 tahun ke depan sejak saya sampai di Eropa:

Karena itu, sudah pasti sebelum ke Eropa,  saya me-list negara dan kota mana saja yang ingin saya kunjungi.. NOTE: Menulis impian itu seakan menulis masa depanmu loh. It will find its way to come true. So, writing your dream will probably the very first step to reach them 😉
Travel Wish
Daaaaaannn… Eng, ing, eeeennnggg… Alhamdulillah lebih dari setengah negara dalam list tersebut sudah terkunjungi:
  1. Desember 2011: Spain Trip ke 5 kota sekaligus dalam 6 hari… we specially name it Islamic Heritage Trip, since we visitted 3 islamic historical cities in Spain, which are indeed Granada for its famous Alhambra, Cordoba for the most well-known Mezquita and of course Sevilla. Selain itu tentunya gak lupa menjelajah 2 kota terbesar di Spanyol: Barcelona dan Madrid. And yes, Indeed we went to see Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. I will tell you story about this trip in detail later…
  2. Februari 2012: Greece and Italy trip. Trip selama 9 hari menjelajah Athena dengan krisis dan strike-nya, lanjut keliling Italia, dari mulai Roma-Pisa-Florence, sampaaaaaiii VENEZIAAA… And the trip was very excited and amazing for many many surprises (good and bad), including Carnival of Venice, where all people wearing exotic masks and classic plus fabulous dresses!! uh-oh, dan tidak terlupakan… NEGARA VATICAN!!! hahahaa, even though it’s inside Rome, still it’s a different country, isn’t it? 😛
  3. Maret 2012: PARIS!! EIFFEL!!! LOUVRE!! ARC DE TRIOMPHE!!! And MACARONS FROM LADUREE!!!! Every single thing in Paris excited us
  4. April 2012: Keukenhof, Netherlands!! Seeing most beautiful and largest tulip garden in the world…
  5. April 2012: Turkey Trip!! Trip to Asian side and European side of this middle east country?? Seeing both Islamic heritage and beauty of nature offered by this country.
  6. June-July 2012: GERMANY TRIP at the end of my semester before going back to Indo, the so-called solo travelling, which I already told you in HERE.

Since then, I have a hiatus from traveling outside Belgium… SIX MONTHS WITHOUT TRAVELING OUTSIDE BELGIUM!! Not even Luxembourg or Amsterdam >.<  Why oh whhhhyyyy???? Firstly, I have a problem with my Belgian residence permit.. Because my VISA already expired, then I have to wait for the new id, and it takes super long time!!!!! Padahal merencanakan ke Luxembourg saat Autumn, which will be super awesome seeing the old town from above with gradient of Autumn colors from the leaves… Oh my… I missed those moments!!! >.< Secondly, Thesis takes my time… Almost all of my free time dedicated to thesis… And I can only travel when the laboratory is officially close, which is: CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY!!! Yeaaaayyy…

For this, I can be so sure, then I can plan to travel during this time…. Gak tanggung2, ke EMPAT negara sekaligus dalam 9 hari… Insya Allah… Semoga saya bisa menyelesaikan tanggung jawab sebagai student dan master thesis student sebelum saya berangkat, sehingga bisa menikmati liburan dengan sehat, semangat dan senang hatiiii, bebas, lepas, bahagia. Aamiin.

Hope that I could wrap all my wishes to travel in 2013…. Aamiin ya rabbal ‘alamiin…….
