Let the nature reveal itself

Einstein once said ,”God is subtle but he is not malicious”. Later he commented that what he had meant was that Nature conceals her mystery by means of her grandeur , not by her cunning. One may realize the truth of this statement as one is lowered down almost 80 meter before starting on a muddy and slippery 300 meter track and to finally realize the spectacular way in which mother Nature unveils its true beauty.

Not the destination but the journey

The Gondola which was used earlier by the Lobster Fishermen, has become one of key attractions for Jogjakarta Visit. Timang beach is about 3 hour driver from the main city of Jojgakarta and it includes a few kilometers on a bumpy road as well. Then there are two ways to reach Panjang Stone. One is a bridge and the other one is Gondola which was originally used by the Lobster fishermen.  The Gondola rides are managed by the trained operators.The Gondola Ride is around 3 minutes. The journey through bridge takes a tad longer .But it comes with its own thrill.In the end , it is the journey whether on Gondola or on the Bridge,  which is more exhilarating than feeling of reaching the final destination itself.

Morning at Mount Fuji

At this moment, you may say that I am over enthusiastic about Mount Fuji.But I had heard a lot of stories that many people are not able to witness sunrise due to clouds.I was sweating like a pig when I reached Mount Fuji Summit after 5 hours of hiking.But temperature was below 10 degree there.I could feel shivers going down my spine.A hot traditional hot Japanese Miso soup came to my rescue.So when Sun came out, it was a wonderful feeling.I suddenly remembered Beach Boys song .

My love like the warmth of the sun, it won’t ever die
(Warmth of the sun, it won’t ever die)
