Hit or Miss: Things to Do (and Skip) Around Dieng Plateau, Central Java

So guys, I’ve got one confession to make… It is the fact that I tend to get lazier to collect sources for content creation when I don’t travel alone. Especially when I travel with my family.

And that, my friends, is the reason why I just got back to update my travelogue about my trip to Dieng last month.Β It’s not like I’ve been quite busy lately, because if anything… Work has been a little slow lately.

Anyway, so I gotta admit that I just noticed I’ve got a few pictures from my trip to Dieng in my camera and phone. I don’t know about you, but there are certainly some places or situations that could make you feel indifferent about taking pics and whatnot. And that was Dieng for me. And Bali. But we’ll talk about this later.

Well, after I reviewed the homestay where we stayed in Dieng, in this post we’re not gonna just talk about the things to do in Dieng. But also, we’re gonna cover some things you could just skip if you’re not that ambitious to visit all places that those influencers tell you to stop by. *LOL*

What You Could Get in Leh for $10 – Things You Can Do in the Most Picturesque Place in India

Hi everyone!

Just recently, one of my friends reached out to me as she was interested to go to Pakistan and India but she didn’t want to go there alone. She asked whether I wanted to go with her. First of all, if given a chance to explore the new place that I’ve never been, I’d definitely say yes.

However, since the only way to travel for me these days is by saving up… As much as I want to go to Leh and Kashmir, for now, I have my own priority as I’ve been saving up for my next destination myself. But hey, I may finally stop by India in 2021 or so! πŸ˜‰

Speaking of which, on this week’s $10 series we’re also gonna talk about another city in India. After covering some other cities from Mumbai to Darjeeling, today we’ve got Radhika of Nomllers to talk about Leh in Ladakh and see how far you could get there within the budget.

Some Things I’ve Learned From My First Family Travel as an Adult

As you might already know, I just recently finished my trip to Dieng and Bali with my family. That was my first family travel as an adult. I mean, I traveled with just my Mom and my brother, and without my Dad and my sister but still…

For those who don’t know about me and my family background, it’s fair to say that we’re not much of travelers as a family. I remember when we were kids, I always complained about how I wanted to travel somewhere else for a vacation. The reason being was that our teacher usually asked to write our vacation story when we were back to school. And I got tired of writing about my Grandma’s house because that was probably the only place we usually went to for the school break.

Looking back, I guess it was the reason why travel bugs bit me more than anything else. I simply just want to see more parts of the world because I didn’t get a chance to do it. The other thing, I suppose it also has something to do with my Dad being the kind of person who’s more comfortable to stay at home.

The older I get, the more I understand the whys. However, above all the things, I came to understand that Mom is pretty much like me. She likes to do new things, exploring places is her favorite, etc. One of the many reasons why we asked her whether she’d join us to Dieng and Bali. In which she said yes without any hesitation.
