Prague Solo Backpack – One Day Journey

It was so exciting. Prague was tremendously beautiful. I love the city, the architecture, the landscape, and particularly the view from the top of its castle and the hills.

It’d been ‘oke oce’ since 2 years ago lol

This journey was a bit audacious one to be honest, due to lack of remaining days after the internship I had, that made me race against time in one day. I had the itinerary, but I must be strict with the time. If in case I’d ran out of time while backpacking I might have missed the bus to Berlin. And If I’d missed the bus to Berlin I would have missed the plane to Indonesia in the day after. Ran out of cash. No ticket to back. The visa expired. Deported.

Alhamdulillah it never happened.

Anyway, the incipience of this post was because I just found simple and cool video editor in Mac and randomly edited my (let’s say) vlog while doing solo backpack Journey in Prague, Czech Republic 2 years ago. Well vlogging was not really popular at that time. It is today, attested by abundant vlogging-type videos by so called Millennials. So I just combined some short random ‘shakky’ videos from my DSLR gallery, and created these three parts of the Journey. So most the stories would be told by these three clips

Prague was my final city of this solo backpacking journey in the end of intern, after Vienna and Budapest. Despite of one day, and having the tight time so I didn’t have the chance to enjoy Prague in the night, it was such an unforgettably amazing journey to experience this city.

That’s why I truly wish I could be able to come back here again to more enjoy the city without time boundary someday. And indeed not alone. Lol. Allahumma amiin.[]

God Morgon Sweden!!

Huruf-huruf ini muncul dari ketikan tombol keyboard laptop teman saya yg saya pinjam di apartemennya, tempat saya menumpang satu malam untuk terlelap di Lund, Sweden. Alhamdulillah akhirnya bisa menginjakan kaki, dan menghirup bumi Engkau di sisi lain yang lebih menjorok ke utara. Pagi disini dingin. Kota lembang dikurangi beberapa derajat, sedikit angin namun dengan gaya arsitektur yang lebih pekotaan dan… european-like. Well this is still europe anyway. Yap itulah Lund. Kota kecil namun asri dan modern, yang bisa dijangkau dari Denmark hanya dengan kereta sekitar 40 menitan.

Disini udara begitu segar. Sepeda bertaburan seperti Denmark. I don’t know the fact in Lund, but in Denmark 70% household don’t own a car. They are all biking. Lund sepertinya tidak jauh beda, melihat berhamburannya sepeda di depan gerbang ketika kita keluar pertama kali dari stasiun.

Pagi ini Alhamdulillah kita bisa makan agak “normal” lagi, Spageti dan dumpling China, yang dimasak oleh teman saya di dapur apartemennya. That’s more than enough karena sebelumnya di Malmo kita ngebolang tanpa memegang satu Krona pun (mata uang Sweden) karena money changer sudah tutup alhasil tidak bisa membeli apa2. Alasan kedua emang sulit mencari makanan yang aman dari pork saat di Denmark dan Malmo. Karena denmark sendiri makanan paling terkenal nya burger & hotdog, dan ketika saya bertanya di salah satu gerainya

“Is there any fish here? Fish burger or something?”

“Nope we have only pork” She answered

Deng haha. Dan alasan ketiga dan mungkin utama juga adalah harga makanan disini mahal2 lol. Yap Denmark dan Sweden salah satu most expensive country in the world. Dibanding di Jerman harga disini cukup lebih tinggi. Tapi dari tour kemarin saya baru tau meski expensive, tapi negara ini salah satu yang tingkat penganggurannya rendah dan happy cities di dunia. I will tell you a bit detail about this and the fact I got from joining the free walking tour in Coppenhage, in another post, in syaa Allah.

Poin utama post ini sebenarnya hanya ingin mengucapkan selamat pagi saja, atau god morgon dalam swedish. And you know how to spell it? It is “Gud Moron” without “g” lol. I bit laughed when the first time hear it in the weather broadcasting in the TV this morning. But yeah, God Morgon Sweden!! x)
