The One With All The Wisdom

I just took a quiz about "What Type of Traveller Are You?" from HostelWorld.com, and I got this result. Somehow it's true.


The other possible results are these:
The YOLO Fiend 
People may judge you for using this word, but you don't care. You don't get to travel much, but when you do, everything excites you. You seize every opportunity and you never use the word 'no'...sometimes you can't help but look around and think 'How did I get here?'. Your constant positviity is infectious (you always have a companion cheering you on) and you live every travel day as if it might be your last. That is The Motto after all... 
The Trailblazer 
'Mainstream tourism' is a phrase that offends you more than people who eat in McDonald's when they're away from home. Guide books are for the fearful, and you are afraid of nothing. You're constantly trying to seek out new and unexplored territories and venture as far away from the beaten track as you possibly can. Your finely tuned sense for danger means you know how to avoid trouble and your trusty gut has never let you down. Be proud of your intrepid nature, but don't judge those who need the guidebook, everyone's different... 
The Princess 
There's nothing wrong with needing a few creature comforts while you're on the road. Some people are perfectly happy without showering every day, using moisturiser or sleeping with bugs in their room, but that's just not you (we get it, spiders are scary and they can crawl into your mouth when you're sleeping). You need to know when you can expect the next bathroom and that your dorm is bug-free. Kudos to you for keeping some standards while you're out there, just don't be afraid to let loose once in a while...
I used to be The YOLO Fiend.
I always admire The Trailblazer and want to make friends with many of them, but I might never be one of them because I like going to mainstream tourist places, to eat franchise foods in other countries (sometimes it's fun to know how McDonald's menu differed in other places :P), and to read guidebooks.
I really hate traveling with The Princess, so troublesome.

What's your type?

Jeju Island in 3 Days

Jeju Island, the Hawaii of Korea, where couples usually go for honeymoon, and the place of many UNESCO Nature Heritage sites, is really beautiful and romantic. Some people say we need to spend at least 1 week to explore and experience the most of this island, but in my opinion 3 days are enough. Trust me, many places in Jeju only look good in advertisement, they're good at selling it. There are no interesting places in the North and West part of Jeju Island, so you can focus on East and South. East and South parts are amazingly naturally beautiful! Here's the itinerary I recommend.

Day-1: East of Jeju Island

Manjanggul / Manjang Cave
Spending time: 30-45 minutes
Hallasan, located in the middle of Jeju Island is the only volcanic mountain in Korea. It created several small volcanic mountains throughout Jeju Island, called Oreum in Korean. One of the biggest Oreum is Geomun Oreum, famous with its large lava tube system and designated as a UNESCO Natural Heritage site. It has few l…

Review: Homestay Cahaya Sikunir Dieng

Mencari penginapan di Dieng itu susah-susah gampang. Disana tidak ada hotel, adanya penginapan rumahan atau homestay. Beberapa turis kadang menginap di kota Wonosobo, sekitar sejam dari Dieng, demi mendapat penginapan yang bagus. Pilihan di travel apps hanya sedikit dan kurang cocok. Setelah browsing sana-sini, terutama baca review blog orang, saya hubungi beberapa homestay di Dieng baik lewat telpon maupun Whatsapp. Saat kami sudah mulai road trip Jawa Tengah tanggal 12 Desember, kami masih belum tau mau menginap dimana di Dieng tanggal 17 Desember nya. Karena waktu itu kami belum fix juga sih mau berapa malam di Dieng, 1 atau 2 malam? Kalau 2 malam, keduanya di homestay yang sama atau ganti homestay?

Akhirnya tanggal 16 Desember, sehari sebelum ke Dieng (saat itu kami di Solo), kami memutuskan untuk menginap 2 malam di Dieng. Malam pertama di Homestay Cahaya Sikunir, karena keesokan subuh nya mau sok-sokan melihat sunrise di Bukit Sikunir, dan malam kedua di Homestay Serayu. Untuk

Transportation in Jeju Island

These are some remarks regarding public transportation in Jeju.
Buses in Jeju Island accept Seoul's t-money card. You can buy and top-up it in convenience store, like GS25 and Family Mart.City buses normally charge 1000won for cash, or 950won for t-money card. If you pay by card, tap it to the machine when you aboard and when you alight. If you transit between 2 buses during a certain times, fee for the next bus can be 0won, or free.Intercity buses vary depends on the distance, usually between 1000-3000won. There's no different fee paying with cash or card. When you aboard the bus, tell the driver about your destination, he will tell you how much it is, and you have to pay there directly. If you pay by card, no need to tap it again when you get off.There are 2 bus terminals in Seogwipo city. The main bus terminal is in the south-east of downtown, near the Jeongbang Waterfall, which is also the old one. The second one is to the right of the E-mart in front of the World Cup Stad…
