“Went to Nature”

Dear Traveller,

My name is Exa. I’m the second-grade student of Senior High School. Today, I’d like to tell you about my biggest journey when I spent my last semester break at North Sumatra and Lombok. It was my first time travelling by plane. Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks my heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes me; it should change me. It leaves marks on my memory, on my consciousness, on my heart, and on my body. I take something with me. Hopefully, I leave something good behind. That is why I love travelling which gives me lots of experiences about learning to live.

I spent my last semester break travelling to some places in Indonesia. Indonesia has many beautiful nature and cultures. A place has a different tradition itself. That makes Indonesia rich of cultures.  I was very interested and so excited.

The first spot was North Sumatra which is located in Sumatra Island. There are lots of tourist attraction which more than 20 spots. I visited Lake Toba which is an awesome natural and beautiful lake. Lake Toba is the most famous lake in Indonesia because of its large size and uniqueness in the form of an island in the middle of Lake Toba. With a length of about 100 KM and a width of about 30 KM, Lake Toba is the largest volcanic lake in Southeast Asia. Lake Toba is the most famous tourist spot in North Sumatra, so I don’t need to worry if you want to stay at Lake Toba because along the banks of Lake Toba there are many inns. I spent 3 days at Lake Toba. It was awesome! Next trip, I visited Medan Grand Mosque which was built in 1906 with a mixed style between the Middle East, Spain and India. Located on Jalan Sisingamangaraja. It is part of North Sumatra history. I learned lots of historical value. One day at Medan Grand Mosque, I think it was enough. Next spot in North Sumatra, I went to Brastagi. Berastagi is one of the cities in North Sumatra that has a cool climate. The location is not far from the city of Medan. I took the Sinabung or Sutra bus which was cheap and could take me to various interesting places in Berastagi, such as Kubu Hill, Gundaling Hill, Lingga Village, Lake Lau Kawar, Sikulikap Waterfall, Two-Colored Waterfall, Sidebuk-debuk Bath, Funland Mickey Holiday, Karo Heritage Museum, Tongkoh Botanical Gardens. Oh my gosh! It was the best moment and lots of experiences in North Sumatra.

I flew 2,575.5 km to Lombok. Lombok Tourism has become a special attraction for both local and foreign tourists. The first trip to Lombok, I visited Senggigi Beach. Senggigi Beach is one of the tourist attractions in Lombok that is most visited by tourists which is located in the western part of Lombok Island, Senggigi Beach has calm waves so it is suitable for swimming and snorkelling. I loved it! It wasn’t perfect if I didn’t visit Mount Rinjani. Mount Rinjani is the most famous tourist icon as well as tourist attractions in Lombok. With a height of more than 3,700 meters, Mount Rinjani is the second-highest volcano in Indonesia. For adherents of Hinduism, Mount Rinjani has its own spiritual value because it is considered to be the abode of the gods. It was a spectacular experience in Lombok. I spent 2 weeks at Lombok.

Before I went back to school. I bought some souvenirs for each destination which were given to my best friends. Oh my gosh! It was an amazing life experience to travel in Indonesia.

That was my adventure for the last semester break. How about you, guys?
