Hey you guys!
Welcome to my VISTA #2! My recent trip was to Australia aaaand I think it is very obvious since I mentioned about it. A lot. Uh-huh, if you pay attention to it, on my blog posts, I mentioned about it again and again hahaha I am just too excited because it was my first ever solo traveling (more post about solo traveling here and here)
But anyway, let’s take a break from Australia trip for now. I was scrolling down on my travel pictures and I found this one. So I took this picture at Senggigi Beach, Lombok, Nusa Tenggara Barat, Indonesia. It is an old picture though, I took this picture last year. So, before I went to Lombok, I haven’t had any vacation for 2 years which made me bitter all the time (sorry folks that affected by that!). After I graduated, at first I wanted to pursue my degree but I didn’t get the scholarship. I decided to give it one year, if I still haven’t got it then I will apply for job and scholarship at the same time. I resigned my job as an assistant lecturer and decided to study German (still do until now by the way!). At that time, I was applying for a scholarship in Germany but got rejected. That time, I had dilemma, you know like you still want to study but you cant be jobless for way too long so I need a job. After finishing my German course, I took a certification. I was really bitter all the time because even though I was unemployed, I haven’t had any chance to go out as in vacation. After I took another certification – yep, I took 2 certifications in less than one month, I decided to go on a vacation.
Whenever and wherever I go, I always chase them, at least I got to get sunrise or sunset! I am a sunrise/sunset chaser I guess!
I decided to go to Lombok with a tour agency. It was a 4D3N trip but I decided to go there earlier so it was 5D4N for me. This picture was taken on my 3rd day in Lombok. On my third day in Lombok, we went to Gili Trawangan and spent our day there. After that, on our way back home we got the chance to see sunset at the beach. We were given 2 options, which were Senggigi Beach and I forgot the other beach but those two beaches are close with each other. On my first day, I went to Senggigi Beach alone so I did not really mind which beach to choose. The others decided to choose Senggigi Beach since it is famous for its sunset. It was pretty cloudy though but when I see the reflection of the sunlight, I was mesmerized. Wow, it is so beautiful! It was a really nice and quiet evening for us at the beach. Very calming. Very beautiful. I felt more relaxed there. You could say that I always love sunrise, sunset, beach, mountain well basically nature! I always think how amazing the nature is. That’s why whenever and wherever I go, I always chase them, at least I got to get sunrise or sunset! I am a sunrise/sunset chaser I guess!
You could reflect on yourself if you are having a really really bad mood. Maybe you just need vacation just like I did!
After that trip, I became less and less bitter. Now, I am back to my cheerful self! So I guess what made me so bitter all the time in life was because I just need some getaway! So maybe, you could reflect on yourself if you are having a really really bad mood. Maybe you just need vacation just like I did!
Well, have you ever experienced this mood like me? What did you do to ease that bitterness? If you travel like I did, where did you go? Leave me some comments below! 🙂
