I am currently updating from Manohara Hotel, Borobudur. Today is my second visit to Borobudur. My first was in 2010. Because it is the weekend, the temple gets very crowded. Also, there will be Buddhist procession. Minus the crowd, it is great to finally meet Candi Borobudur again. And my stay at Manohara is pleasant. But how did I get here is another story. I haven’t been having enough sleep so I am going to bed. This is just an update 🙂
I have been to Indonesia thrice. Next month will be my fourth and this time, I will be exploring the country with my mom. The thing about this daughter-mother trip is I don’t know where to begin. I have the starting point and I know where it will end. I do not have the in between. I definitely want to revisit Jogja and Borobudur. When we should do it, I do not know. The other day, mom asked whether I had everything planned. I was flipping through the LP guide book and shrugged. “Nah, read this.” It has been two weeks now. I am still waiting for my mom to tell me about places she wants to visit.
14 Dec 2014 Copenhagen, Denmark It was Sunday and it was the day Rebecca and Solveign sent me off to my hostel. And just like the day before, we walked. It was also the day I really felt like a serious backpacker because I was carrying a big backpack behind me and a small one in front of me. Pretty heavy stuff I had on my body and to walk 20 minutes with two heavy backpacks was not fun, at all.
I had been a victim of an unfortunate event but I managed to arrive Aarhus on Dec 18 at 6.40pm, about three hours behind schedule. To cut a long story short, I missed my noon bus because I got lost looking for a train station. Anyway, the wind in this part of Jutland was colder than in Copenhagen when I arrived. Currently, it reads 6°C for both regions and according to my weather forecast, snow is expected in Copenhagen on Thursday while Aarhus will be snowing on Saturday. I am contemplating extending my stay. *sigh*
I finally arrived Denmark on Dec 12. Copenhagen is such a cosy city in the winter with friendly streets. So it is easy to get lost and easy find your way home. This is Copenhagen in a day, guided by my two Danes friends before I take the streets alone.
