The Calm Hotel, Manohara
Life's meant to be experienced. Eat, Pray, Love is for most part the reason why Indonesia is one of the most sought destinations to find oneself.
Though I came here not to do that, but live life, explore, and try new things. It's hard not to find yourself when you're surrounded by nature, calm creatures, and all the good things in life.
Something about the thought of exploring a completely different venue with different setting that pushes you to plan a trip outside Bali. 1 hour flight from Bali, and another car ride from the city of Yogyakarta, located is Borobudur.
You see, there's something special about a hotel on the same vicinity of a temple . First played with this thought for the convenience of getting for the Sunrise Tour at the temple that starts at 5 am. Arriving at the hotel ground, despite the hustle of the tourist trap, feels at ease stepping into lobby full of wood and music played by a local with a soft sound of a harp like.
Every melody is a tune that's somewhat relaxes the ear. Prepared with the cold drink and cold towel, all that humidity is nothing in comparison to vast landscape of green, wood, and stones. Did I also mention that the room comes with a charming backyard? Yes, we're home.
Let's keep a lifetime of memories on this open journal. Life's meant to be lived. Tons of countries to see, and experiences to be lived. Life's good if make you make it be.
