Okay, finally I promised I will finish my story about my trip to Karimun Java Island. So where were we?
So after snorkeling, we went to one of the small island nearby. Sorry I really couldn’t recall the name (>_<) Lesson for myself, next time really have to write my journey down, or start the blog earlier, no more procrastination! ;P
Anyway, the small island was so beautiful, the water was so clear that you can see the fish and also some green algae. It is heaven on earth. Majestic! Here’s the picture!
It’s so beautiful isn’t it? When I see this, I feel all that long journey by buses and ferry was totally worth it! The sea and the blue sky just seems to merge in gradation over the horizon. We alighted from the boat and started to walk around the island , and taking loads of picture that I can’t share it all with you, but I share the picture we take in every corner of the island. We’re a bit of narcissist, I’ll tell you! 😉
“Perhaps it is too late. I want to run the beach’s length, because it never ends.”
We lost track of time over there, just enjoying the view, the beach, the sands on our feet and to spend it with bestfriend, it’s just wonderful! From this island we hopped again to another island nearby to eat and relax before going back to the mainland to catch the sunset by the pier. They have delicious coconut drinks!
“I shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach.”
When we got back to the mainland, we went back to our live-in house to shower first. But we took a little too much time that we missed the sunset by the pier when we walked back there. But, we still got some nice pics of the evening.
To wrap up the day, we went for dinner in the so-called “town centre” where there’s a big football field, where at night they have people gather around to have dinner (fresh seafood dishes) and just chitchatting. The seafood was so good AND cheap! We ordered 1 lobster and 1 octopus (there were quite big!). It was a great day! We got back to the house and rest for the next day.
Day 3 was pretty relax, we went for snorkeling and island hopping again. It was a sunny day, which I must admit I hate though I love the beach and the sea, but sun just not my buddy. Oh, I might forgot to mentioned, during this trip we met a group of people from Jakarta that also on holiday. We joined together during island hopping and stuff under the same tour package. I love to travel and meet new people, although also for 2 days we got to know each other quite well and keep in contact till know. Great, isn’t it? How strangers meet in a cross path and become friends thereafter? 🙂 Anyway, here’s some of the snapshot we took when snorkeling in few spots, wandering around the islands (for lunch), jumped in water with sharks and finally we managed to catch the sunset!
Snorkel under the sea!
We met this sweet little girl who is the small snack shop in the island, she even wanted to take picture with us. She said she wants to learn how to speak English so that she can talk to the tourist that come to the island. One of our tour group friend told her some simple conversational sentences and brought her to talked to tourist couple there. She’s a bit shy at first, but then she really talked to them! So cute 🙂
This is our little tour group. Crazy and super fun people, haha!
This little boy posed in front of us when he saw us with camera, super cute!
The hill of LOVE
Day 3 is a wrapped! The next day was time for us to go back to Solo, again with the almost-15-hour journey by ferry and buses. I was having an amazing time in Karimun Java island, it is so beautiful! Super recommended for your travel destination, I believe you can actually arrange for better transportation so the travel time not as crazy. In my case, we’re did not make any plans and just a spontaneous trip we did! That’s Karimun Java for you, but wait!
My holiday was not done yet! After went back to Solo, the next day (my second last day for this holiday), we went to Jogjakarta! So, to be continued… 😉
