Return to Innocence

As someone who lives in a country that is an archipelago, flying is the main access when travel time is short. Having a hometown at the northernmost part of the country shortened the means of transport list as well! Add those with the rest of the journeys to go in a year? Sitting on the plane can be an art of itself!

Despite the risks and dramas which sometimes occur on the plane (why is getting off the plane in order of row is so difficult for people to fathom?!!), it is possible to keep everything in tact throughout the journey. Most especially when we know the reason we are on that plane at the first place.

How to make it counts, though?

“If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay at home.” — James Michener

As many people who have been reading my blogs all these times must have noticed, I took some times off blogging. The main reason is, I have so many things to do in the real life. The other reason is the fact that I asked some professionals who have been reading blogs for some years to review this blog of mine. More about this second reason will be shared in the next blog. For now, I want to share why I started this blog with the quote above. Because after traveling to three islands in the beginning of October 2011, Penang – Singapore – Bali, I am reminded of what I learned back in March 2011 when I went to Medan – Penang – Lake Toba for the first time.

That a tourist and a traveler are not the same!

Now what?

That is the first question in my head when the new things (and people) started coming into my life. It took time for me to get used to each and everyone of them. Needless to say, it’s been challenging.

Change, after all, is not always an easy thing.

To accept them is one thing, to make the most out of them is another. In fact, it almost felt like I was paying an old debt. I mean, I had been praying for them and once I had them, I’d better knew exactly what to do! Let me choose one example – my internet connection. I lived with a super lame connection for years. I’m glad I survived but for sure, life would be so much better with a good one. However, getting a better one doesn’t make life easier.

 

If anything, it makes life even more challenging.
