Big Decision and Big Announcement! (Bahasa Indonesia)

Setelah beberapa saat, saya akhirnya masuk ke sebuah fase bernama “otak buntu”, dimana saya benar-benar tidak tahu harus menulis tentang apa.

Hal tersebut sebenarnya dikarenakan saya tidak melakukan hal-hal yang menarik beberapa minggu belakangan ini, sehingga sangat sulit untuk saya menulis sebuah artikel yang informatif dan menarik. Continue reading “Big Decision and Big Announcement! (Bahasa Indonesia)”

Big Decision and Big Announcement! (English)

As months has passed, there will be a certain times when you are at the point with seriously nothing interesting to write about.

Since I’ve been living quite a boring live for few weeks, it’s hard for me to keep up with updating my blog with an informative yet interesting story. Continue reading “Big Decision and Big Announcement! (English)”

Happy New Year 2018!

First of all, I would love to thank everyone for the enormous loves and supports from the first day I started my blogging journey until now.

Five months have passed and with thirty-three (33) stories published along the way, lessons learned and experiences gained.

January 2018, the beginning of my 6th’s month as a story teller for everyone out there, connected through the internet, with a goal to prove myself that I can do more than what I think I am capable of.

It’s all in the matter of perception, what you and everyone think about yourself is not going to define who you really are, at least that’s what I’m going to prove in seven months (5th of August 2018).

Happy New Year 2018!

– Ferry William (Medan, 1st of January 2018)

 

Wonderful Indonesia: Samosir Island Pt. 3 (Bahasa Indonesia)

Hari ketiga, hari terakhir pertualangan kami!

Setelah check-out dari hotel, kami pun menuju ke sisi lain pulau Samosir, yang merupakan satu-satunya jalan untuk mengakses pulau Samosir melalui jalan darat. Pulau Samosir sebenarny terhubung dengan pulau Sumatera di daerah barat pulau, menghubungkan kota Pangururan di Samosir dan Kota Tele di Sumatera Utara. Total perjalanan melalui darat memakan waktu sekitar 10 jam dari Samosir kembali ke Medan (Perjalanan dari Medan ke Samosir hanya memakan waktu 4-5 jam). Tapi semuanya terbayarkan dengan pemandangan yang spektakuler di sisi lain Samosir yang sangat jarang dilewati oleh turis-turis.

Wonderful Indonesia: Samosir Island Pt. 2 (Bahasa Indonesia)

Hari berikutnya, sial lagi!

Rencananya, kami akan menginap selama 2 malam di penginapan ini sesuai dengan booking-an kami, tapi, keesokan harinya, kami malah mendapatkan kabar bahwa penginapan tersebut penuh dan kami harus segera check-out pada saat itu juga.

Setelah berunding (lebih tepatnya marah-marah) dengan resepsionis disana, kami pun dipindahkan ke penginapan lain yang bernama The Samosir Villas. Memang harganya sedikit lebih mahal dari penginapan sebelumnya, tapi pemandangannya patut diacungi jempol.

Wonderful Indonesia: Samosir Island Pt. 3 (English)

Third day, marked as the last day of our trip!

After we checked out from the hotel, we proceed to the other side of Samosir Island which is the only way to access the island by car. The island is linked to the mainland of Sumatra on its western part by a narrow land, connecting the town of Pangururan on Samosir and Tele on mainland Sumatra. It took roughly around 10 hours to get back to Medan (We only spent roughly 4-5 hours from Medan to Samosir), but the scenery of the island totally worth the extra time spent.

Wonderful Indonesia: Samosir Island Pt. 2 (English)

 

The next day, yet another unfortunate thing happened.

We were supposed to stay at that cottage for two night as for the booking we made earlier, but, the next day after our first night, they told us that their cottage is full and we will need to check-out immediately.

After we talked and discussed for a while with the cottage’s reception, they managed to move us to other accommodation, with a more expensive price but quite a nice surrounding, named the Samosir Villas.
