Sejenak kembali ke masa kecil saya (ga kecil-kecil banget se). Waktu itu saya duduk di kelas 3 SMP. Saya ikut study tour ke Bali bersama sekolah.
Bali beda jauh dengan Jawa, ya budayanya ya rumah adatnya ya bahasanya.Menurut saya setiap tempat yang dilewati adalah “tempat wisata” (pikir saya waktu itu). Dan sehabis pulang dari Bali, saya masih penasaran dengan Bali “suatu saat nanti aku harus exploring Bali!!” (lagi hegheg..).
When i was in the 3rd grade of junior high school, i went to Bali for a holiday tour with all of 3rd grade students in my school. That was the 1st time i went far away from my town without my parents. I was very excited that time. I heard so many great stories about that island of God, and that made me more curious about Bali. We went there by bus “Tami Jaya”. Early morning we arrived at Bali strait, and we crossed the sea by Ferry.AwwH that was the 1st time i step my path in the ferry ship!! I crossed the ocean by ship!!! Even i never use a small boat as a transport before!! Finally i went out from Java Island. I entered Bali. I felt a different atmosphere there (I dunno which athmosphere zone is.. could be stratosphere or thermospher)
I went to some beautiful and unique places there, such as : Tanah Lot Temple Beach, Kuta Beach, Sanur Beach, Besakih Temple, Goa Lawah, Kintamani, Lake Batur and Mount Batur sight seeing, Barong and Legong Dance performance, Sukawati art market, Bedugul and Alas Kedaton monkey forest. Ooowh I remember all that places! Cool.. ^_^
In my opinion Bali was so beautiful, I could see their culture, religion activity, and building architecture really different from my culture in Yogyakarta. And after I cameback to Yogya, I still curious about Bali, because our school tour was just a short tour that only spent 5 days and 4 nite. “ I must back there again someday!! I would explore it much more!!” that was my dream when I was in junior high school ^_^. Hmm it was a simple dream…damn simple.
