What You Could Get For $10 In Cusco – The Other 2Ms That Are Not Macchu Picchu!

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Hi everyone!

Back again at What You Could Get In The City For $10 series, and this time, we’re going back to Peru after I posted some random facts about the country for the World Cup 2018.

In fact, the reason why I wrote the previous post was that I got connected with Owen from My Turn To Travel. When he said that he wanted to cover Cusco, writing something about the World Cup was pretty much like a momentum so I did. 😀

Also, I’m excited since this is gonna be the first city that we will cover in the series that is located in Latin America. So, over to Owen! 😉

Stone Garden GeoPark: The Merge of Machu Picchu and Capadoccia in Bandung, Indonesia

Reading Time: 11 minutes

I don’t know about you, but I’m kind of a sucky traveler when it comes to my hometown.

Like, I could tell you where to get the best midiye dolma in Izmir, but I gotta think hard if you asked me about the best place to go shopping or the best coffee shop in Bandung. And I wouldn’t guarantee that I could eventually find the answer. 😛

The thing is, despite the fact that I’ve spent 20++ years in Bandung, I rarely have time to explore the city for the sake of being local. I mean, you probably know by now that I’m not exactly a cafe-hopper, and more often than not… I always get too lazy to go out as I only imagine the possibilities to face the traffic jam. Especially during the weekend!

I mean, seriously… As a passenger, I just don’t want to spend extra money for cabs. As a driver, I just can’t hold on to my dear life to drive in the bad traffic. And I’ve been living like a spoiled brat long enough in my life to not consider the other options of public transportations.

So on this post, I would like to share a hidden gem in Bandung that I have visited for the first time a few weeks ago. Located in the west part of Bandung, Stone Garden Geo Park could be reached more than 2 hours from Bandung city center by car with traffic jam.

The good thing is that you could also reach this off-beaten spot in Bandung by train. And that’s what I did when I visited the place. 😉

If You’re One of These 4 Passenger Types, Just Know That You’re Probably A Pain in the Ass for Someone at the Airport!

Reading Time: 8 minutes

After I graduated from college, despite the fact that I hold a bachelor’s degree in International Relations, I decided to start my career in the aviation industry. To be more specific, my first professional job was as a Guest Service Assistant for some airline that you’re probably already familiar with if you’re a frequent flyer around Southeast Asia region.

Back in the days, just like pretty much all students in International Relations, I was also looking into the opportunities to work in the high politic sector like in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or embassies. In Indonesia, you need to pass some certain tests to get a position in the ministry as a civil servant. And by the time I graduated, the tests got postponed for some reasons.

So, just like pretty much everyone who just graduated from college, I had to bury my dreams and get some back-up. And for this, I chose the aviation industry dealing with customer service.

I thought this must have been not so hard. I only had to deal with people and as a bonus, I would get to relocate and even better some staff discount for airfare.
