In the Search of Inner Peace: Jogjakarta

Back in 2007, I came in to Jogjakarta for a school field trip. I was amazed by the city and always want to go back over and over again. That feeling, I don't see it becomes obsolete any time soon. Abundant blessings are showered to the city; beaches, mountains, and the city itself that spoils you with peace and calm surroundings. Earlier this year, I had a chance to go back to the city, and here are some places where I went. Enjoy!

1. Babo Cafe

Babo Cafe is one of go-to cafes during your stay in Jogjakarta. It is easy to access, located near behind Bethesda Hospital, not too far away from Galeria Mall. I was staying around Prawirotaman, and it costs only IDR 25k for a cab. The menu was quite good and affordable, but I wasn't hungry so I chose to order a cup of coffee to start the day. What I love the most is the interior and not-so-crowded situation that gave me a good mood while sipping my latte.

Definitely my go-to look while staying in Jogjakarta.

2. Pok Tunggal Beach

This beach is totally awesome. The beach is located in a line of beaches around Gunung Kidul (approx. 2 hours from the downtown of Jogjakarta). My visit was amazing, as it wasn't a peak season for holiday. Quiet, tranquil, and serene. You might not find any power sources (well, electricity) around the beach, as it hasn't reached by it. A perfect place to get a little time off from hasty situation for you guys who live in the capitals.

3. Kalibiru Village

During my stay in Jogjakarta, a friend of mine, @dibatiaraa, was being a savior. She offered her granny's place to stay. It was in Wates, 2 hours from Jogjakarta. The idea of her granny's location leads us to Kalibiru, Kulon Progo. The place was amazing that I can't word it. You guys must see it yourselves. Hills that surround Waduk Sermo on its center, a view you can see from an outbound stage, on the top of a high tree. A picturesque moment, indeed.
