#tripofwonders Off to Bandung!

Beautiful cloudy day today as we wake up in Hotel Santika, Banyuwangi.

Phew. Unfortunately this day I have a bit of a tummy upset and I keep on needing to use the toilet! 😫😫😫

Tummyache tapi still looking good haha.

Anyway, we were supposed to rush to the airport for a 730am flight – and we actually arrived in the airport at 725am πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Upon arrival to Bandung, all I wanted to do was to find a toilet. But the queue was super long and omg apparently we were supposed to find blue Alphards in front of the airport waiting for us???

So I was in the toilet and everyone was yelling MAURINAAAAA FIRSTAAAA FARAAAAHHH JESSICCAAASA (all the ladies names still in toilet) because the all the Blue Alphards was already waiting!!!!

Then we were looking for blue Alphards which turn out to be:



We had to go on these Alphards as buses were not allowed at the entrance of the small airport haha. 

No safetybelt no door! All convenience. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Anyway, this brought us to our bus, and off we went to the lunch place. 

Me, at that time can’t stand the smell of food haha so I went straight to the hotel, Sheraton Bandung.

Hermit mode as I need to recover asap.

I am not exactly too sure why I have food poisoning also since I’m eating same food as everyone. I think I’m just allergic to exercise lah πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Sheraton Bandung took care of me and the next day I was feeling great and ready to visit Kawah Putih!

Kawah Putih is another crater lake, very near to the city of Bandung. 

Bus ride for 2 hours. Sleepytime.

Upon arrival we had to go up the mountain with this Angkut (Alphard) haha.

With Motulz an awesome sketch artist I met on this trip. 

The trip up is similar to Ijen, except this is by car haha.

Lucky people got their Photos taken by a professional haha. This is Edgar, @eazytraveller who is from the Phillipines. 

I find it amusing that they asked him in Bahasa Indonesia and he simply obliged and even said “lagi satu” to which they gave him another pose. Haha.

I suppose we are all children of ASEAN and we all somehow look similar. πŸ™‚

Anyway, from the above location, which is where our Angkut/Alphard dropped us off, it’s another 200m to get to the actual Kawah Putih – much like walking to a mall.

Must be the most accessible crater lake ever. So many people here. Mostly weekenders from Jakarta!

Btw if u want to visit Bandung, visit on a weekday cause omg human traffic, car traffic and traffic all around!

Bought these yummy and sweet strawbies   for about $2 πŸ˜‹ so cheap!

Leya bought cireng! Also so yummy.


Then had lunch at Ciwidey Valley!

Lovely place 😍

After lunch headed back to Bandung. Tummies full, slept on the bus.

Then, woke up, still on the bus. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Gosh! Traffic!

Enjoying traffic. Di Brunei nada. πŸ˜‚

Finally arrived at the hotel.

Needed some time to decompress near the pool! 

Then Marul texted and said lets have pizza πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚



Ready for farewell  dinner😭 so sad! Tge programme is almost over.

Dinner is at Sierra, Bandung.

Awesome food, and awesome view!

Bandung night sky. After, it’s sleep time and tomorrow, people start saying goodbyes :((((((
