this is my travel photo diary to the group of islands called Karimun Jawa end of last year.
it was my first time backpacking with friends..and the whole thing felt so different compared to normal trips that i've had done before..where we usually stay at nice hotels or resorts with all the convenience they provide.
this time, we get to mix ourselves with the locals. we can see what they do everyday, and how they live so happily even with the limited sources! it's amazing to have such experience..
we stayed at a place called Wisma Apung or The Floating House.
it's a place owned by a local; a nice woman with some helpers and a son. the house has many small rooms to be rented to the tourists.
it's called the Floating House because it's built on top of the sea! everything is limited... from 6am to 6pm, the electricity will be shut down. but it's actually no biggie at all, since we are always out to the ocean and other islands in that time (we do snorkeling in the middle of the ocean every single day!!) ;)
and the coolest part of this house is; they have SHARKS as pets!! how awesome is that!
feeding the sharks, fishing at night, warm gestures from the locals, lunches at different islands everyday, beautiful place, and fun friends...really really good memories.... <3 <3
