First of all, i think i had lost my sense of writing. I'm not thinking that writing is fun as much as when I'm still a kid. I'm reducing at writing skill. And I'm regretting it. I think i will start to write again with blogging my life journal. My experiences in life.
What i want to tell in this post is: my JOURNEY to SUMATERA
I don't know why but i always want to go to this Island. Maybe it's because i have lots of friends from this Island but I'm never step on this Island. Actually, I'm never been out from Java Island before. So this journey will be exciting.
It's started when i was going home from Purwokerto to Bogor for my Holidays. Then mom asked me where did i want to go for my Holiday? Then my brother gave us a stupendous idea to go ride a ship to cross to Sumatera. My Dad was an expert on sea things like that. And yes of course we accept that brilliant idea. Thanks, bro!
We leave house on Sunday morning at 6.30 a.m. It'll be a long way until we arrive on the harbor. So we must go on early morning. We arrived on the Merak Harbor on 9 o'clock. That's very fast and fortunately we didn't catch in traffic jam.
We bought the ticket for crossing the Island with ship. It's about Rp 232,500.00. Then we waited the ship anchored to the dock. We got a little Green ship this time (I'm forget what its name). I'm so excited to see the ship came near us and opened his Doors to let our car to go inside it.
We got parking place near the Doors for roll-out. It means that we'll be the First to come out when the ship has arrived in the next Harbor. Then we moved out from car and started to explore the ship!
I and my brother were taking some pictures while we explored the ship. We went to the roof of the ship and stayed there. It wasn't so crowded there. Actually only I and my brother were there on the ship roof. Above the captain's room.
We took other pictures there. And when the ship passed the PACC ship (one of Singapore's ship, brought some chemistry materials i think), we got some Photos too. It was very big ship. But the next ship that passed was bigger. The oil tank ship. It's so long and big! Very gorgeous!
Then we saw Sebesi Island, one of the Islands you must visit when you're on trip to Krakatoa. But what excited me so much was when I saw a pair of DOLPHINS jump out from sea and amused people in ship! They're so amazing! That was the First time I saw dolphins on my naked eyes, not on the movies or TVs. Adorable. After got lots of pictures, we chatted there until we saw the Sumatera Island! I'm so excited! Then Dad called and told us to go downstairs. It's time to go inside the car again and cruised to Sumatera!
First time we landed on Sumatera, we shouted each other and yelled: Hooray! We had stepped on Sumatera! Except my Dad. He had been in this Island so many Times. Actually i think he had gone around Indonesia while he was taking his jobs.
And we were hungry. We needed to lunch. But Dad said that there was a city called Kalianda near the Harbor and there was Beach on there and maybe we could find some foods on the beach. So, there we went! But unfortunately, ok, it's Sumatera. It's not Java anymore. In Java, you may find much food stands around the recreation Place. But here, there are no enough foods for lunch on the Beach. So we must back again to the city and had lunch on a Padang's restaurant.
Next, the Beach! It's different from the Beach around Java Island. It has White sand and very adorable color of water (It's not so chocolate, like the sea on Java). It's mixed between Green and blue. And it was decorated by much of coral Reefs, clam shells, and its makes the Beach much more beautiful!
I couldn't hold my desire to take some other pictures on Beach and went to play on the seashore. We played with the waves, found some shells, and it was an enormous fun we had!
Oh, i almost forgot, the name of the Beach is: eMBe Beach, South Lampung. Bro told that it was abbreviation from Merak-Belantung Beach. Sounds reasonable.
Next stunning place is Menara Siger, or Siger Tower near the Harbor. This place can be seen even when we still on the ship! It has a bright yellow color and unique architectures. It's traditional Building from Lampung.
Bad luck, it's not open that day. We just had to around the Building outside and took some incredible Photos. Maybe pictures talks more much better than just words.
Last, we're going home. And on the ship, we could see the sunset. Nice.
