Indonesia - Medan - Samosir Island - Our car

Our car when doing a road trip in Samosir Island (North Sumatra, Indonesia)

When myself and friends visited Samosir Island, we did choose to stay in Tuk-tuk and by the Lake Toba.

But to get a more beautiful and interesting view of the Lake Toba, we needed to view it from above … That’s why we went to Sigarantung hill, near the place that is usually used for paragliding competition. I can see why that they use this place as the starting point of the glide as the view is beautiful and the hill is covered with green grass and trees.

There’s not much thing to do here besides eating boiled noodle with slices of chilli (cayenne pepper), and enjoy the scenery 😉

So here are a few shots of the view of Lake Toba from above :-), oh and my friend Lidya take a video when we up there 😉

Mixed Up Already

The things that I love are movies, music, and travel. I have an extended family in the movies world, called MoviegoersID, and we love to hang out and watch the movie together. How about music? Well, do you know The Corrs? Yep, they are a very talented family/musician that I deeply love since high school! If you love them, then we might get a long well ;-) . My love to music then grow to Sugarland, Christina Aguilera, The Script, and of course the one and only Anggun. Travel is the love that grows in me very late. At around 2011, I fell in love with travelling, and I tried my best to travel each month since that time. You can contact me at .
