Dream of a lifetime (Day 1)

 

Every man has dreams. Something precious… Something that we long for… Something that we want to get or to do.. no matter what the cost is. I believe that we all have this in ourself. No matter how big or small that dream is… we still have it. The choice is all yours, whether you want to go for it… or to let it go. But… when you decide to go for it… fight for it… chase it till the end… succeed.. or die trying!!

For some people, they dream of wealth, power, world peace, land, happiness, health, home, or even woman😈 …. Sometimes, they dream something unique or different in a way (i.e. climbing Mt. Everest). How about your dream??🙂

As for me… I have a lot of dreams. Thanks to my family and friends,… some of them have already been done. But the others are still left to be accomplished. And now… I am getting close to the time where I have to complete one of my dreams which has been running trough my head for the past 8 years. This one is not really something big scale like saving the world or become a president😀 … it just something that I want to do, as someone who loves his country. Someone who wants to know what his country has, and enjoy it to the fullest😀 The dream… is…

7 days road trip of Java Island🙂

Check it out, dudes!!!….

The dream is not as simple as it seems. It needs a good plan… and a good plan needs a good source of information… and a good source of information, is YOU🙂 This is because I do understand that I have very little knowledge about doing the road trip, route to the other city, the traffic information, the place to stay, the beautiful or unique place to go to, the food specialty of certain places, and the custom (i.e. Not to wear green color clothing in the south coast). So thats why I share my plan to you in this blog… per day… in hoping that you could share your valuable knowlegdes of certain places to me.. and of course to the other readers too😀

Thus… please share with me through your comment if you have:

1. Ideas or infos about what to do and not to do at the place that I am going to
2. Tips and tricks at certain places that I am going to go to (i.e. How to haggle the price for the local products? :D)
3. Interesting and unique places that I definitely have to visit along the way of my road trip (i.e. In Jogja, visit Prambanan:D)
4. Specialty food in those places that I am going to visit🙂
5. Any other infos that might be useful during the trip

So… thank you in advance for your infos🙂 I am going to update each post based on your comments:mrgreen:

Hmm… enough introduction😀 So… this will be the first post of this topic. I am going to give the general plan for this trip as well as the details for the 1st day🙂

General plan:

Day 1 : Bandung-Purwokerto
Day 2 : Purwokerto-Jogjakarta
Day 3 : Jogjakarta
Day 4 : Jogjakarta-Malang
Day 5 : Malang-Surabaya
Day 6 : Surabaya-Semarang
Day 7 : Semarang-Cirebon-Bandung

1st Day (Bandung-Purwokerto)

Bandung Pangandaran Purwokerto

Doing the road trip with only one or two people doesn’t seem to be interesting at all. So… thats why I am planning to do it with 4 to 6 people🙂 The more the merrier… and of course… its much cheaper that way😛 Hehehhe…. So far, we still have another two empty slot to be filled. Interested to join us??😀

We are going to do the road trip using a car. Since we are staying at Bandung, this will be our starting point. The first heading is to Purwokerto🙂 But.. we are not going to directly go to Purwokerto. Instead, we are thinking of going to Pangandaran beach first before we continue the trip to Purwokerto. So… for the first day, we are going to leave Bandung early in the morning, probably around 4 am. The intention is to reach Pangandaran aournd 8-9 am.

In this place, we are going to have breakfast and spend around 2 to 3 hours in the beach while waiting for lunch. After lunch… continue the trip to Purwokerto. I am not really sure how long will it takes from Pangandaran to Purwokerto (probably around 4-5 hours. Any ideas, dudes??). The first thing to do when we reach Purwokerto is to find a place to stay for the night (any ideas about a decent hotel with a reasonable price??). In this place….. we are thinking of visiting Batu Raden😀 Stay there for a few hours and go to the city for dinner. Then, go around the city and back to the hotel around 12 pm (any ideas about good places to go to??). The next thing to do is to sleep😀 Hehehe…

So.. thats the plan for the 1st day🙂 Please share your thought so that we can make the trip worthwhile😀 Thanks in advance dudes….:mrgreen:

  16. I agree with Glitterpury, I think Dinasty Hotel is good and comfortable enough (I’ve ever lived in Purwokerto for 3 years).

    any ideas about good places to go to??

    I want to promote my city, the neighbour of Purwokerto, i.e. Banjarnegara
    It takes about 2 hour from Purwokerto to Banjarnegara. Actually Banjarnegara is only a small city, but we have some interesting places to go and handicraft to buy.
    About 1,5 hour from Purwokerto you will enter “the gate” of Banjarnegara in which you can buy special ceramics. I think you heve ever heard about Dieng. Dieng is one beautiful place we have.
    I think you can find more information in my blog:
