Weekend Getaway at Puncak, Bogor

Have you every heard people complaining on social media on how bad the traffic in Jakarta is, every long weekend? Especially those routes to other neighbor cities surrounding Jakarta, like Bandung, Bogor, or Puncak. Well, those people are maybe just like me, who sometimes got sick spending long weekend in Jakarta. In which, what you can do is literally just going to the malls, watching movies, eating out, etc. Sooo boring! It was just one of those week, which I felt like going somewhere to spend the long weekend outside Jakarta. My friends and I decided to have a short weekend getaway in Puncak, Bogor. Sounds common? Well, yes indeed. But actually, it’s still better than going to the malls, isn’t it? There are several things you can do for weekend getaway there.

A Homey Seattle

“So, where will you go next after here and Orlando?” A shopkeeper at Georgetown, Washington DC, asked me after we talked about the (my) trip there to US. Remember when I said that almost all of the shopkeepers in Georgetown were ultimately friendly?

“Not much. I’ll go to Seattle after the Orlando trip,” I said, putting back the bag I just looked around back to the display rack.

“Oh, wow! You’re going to west coast?” He widened his eyes. I looked at him, a bit surprised and confused seeing his excessive response. “That is totally awesome! People said west coast, especially Seattle is really nice. I, myself, have never got the chance to be there. It’s too far away from here,” he continued.

This time, I widened my eyes. Felt a bit surprised again as I thought that most of Americans must have been going to visit almost every states of their country. At least, Seattle, a seaport city at the west coast. Turns out, I’m just that fortunate to be able to visit a couple of states in US on my first visit there, while their very own residents didn’t always have the chance to visit other states.
