Marine iguanas can only be found in Galapagos islands. And the hybrid between marine and land iguanas can only be found here. In South Plaza island. Do you know what is the difference between marine and land iguanas? Marine iguanas are black and land iguanas are yellow. The hybrid between the two has both black… Continue reading Iguana Island
One thing that can only happen in Galapagos. Your car is stopped by a tortoise. Of course everyone has to stop their car if they find a tortoise in their driveway. Not only because they are endangered, see how gigantic they are.
Rio From Above
I should have taken the heli ride during the day or sunset time. But, because i did not know that Rio's traffic could be as terrible as Jakarta, i was late and missed the time. The heli tour owner was very very nice to ask the pilot to wait for me though they should have… Continue reading Rio From Above
If you ask most people, they will say that number one thing to do when you are in Rio is to go to the Christ Redeemer. But not for me, not for me, i have a different idea. If you ask me, i will say: Skip the Christ Redeemer and Sugarloaf Mountain and take the… Continue reading Christ Redeemer
The most beautiful park in Rio, should i say. It is situated below the Christ Redeemer statue. You can see the statue looks so small from here. Can you spot it in my pictures?
Here are some pictures i got from a walking tour around a slum area in Rio. This tour would be an interesting choice for tourists from a developed country. But not for the ones from developing country. You must have seen this kind of area in your home country. Which was my case since i… Continue reading La Favella

I was there on a winter so not many people were on the beach. Even so, i still saw some people… Continue reading Copacabana & Ipanema
Before heading to Lencois Maranhenses, i have to take a stop in Sao Luiz first. At least for one night. Again, because of the non-convenient flight schedule. In Sao Luiz, I stayed at the old city area. There were many nice classical architectures but they all looked like they have been abandoned for a very… Continue reading Sao Luiz
A lagoon and a desert. That does not sound like a right combination. But apparently the two make a good place to visit. I have not been to many places around the world. But this probably is one unique place none can compare. Some say it feels like we are in Mars cause where on… Continue reading Lencois Maranhenses
I don’t know about you but i find camping in the Amazon jungle is such a cool experience. And yes i also know that it was dangerous. We slept in the wild and no one knew what animals lived there. In fact, around midnight there were angry monkeys making noises just few meters from our… Continue reading Jungle Camping
