Hello all!! So I am temporarily back in the Netherlands now during this sabbatical vacation month of mine. As you can read there, and my Instagram followers (@azilko) would have known, this past week I went to two European countries: Romania and Greece.

While above you can find my plan for the posts in this trip series, I am afraid these posts will not come quite soon; given that I am going on my second trip this month to the Caribbean in the next a few days, haha😆 . So these posts would have to wait until I am back later on😉 .

Anyway, so how were Romania and Greece? Well, in one word, it was awesome! Technically this trip was my first real (read: long-ish) trip since my Spring Trip to Baltic this Spring (haha😛 ); and it came just after I (pretty much) finished my PhD. So the timing was perfect as I pushed through during the Summer (where pretty much everyone else in my group went on vacations; and weekend trips do not count, of course😉 ); and I did need the time to relax and rest my brain🙂 .

It was also nice that it coincided with the wedding of a friend of mine in Bucharest; and that my parents were able to travel with me.

I think this is all I have for now. As usual, here are some (beautiful) teasers from this trip!

Halo semua! Jadi ceritanya sekarang aku sedang sementara kembali ke Belanda di tengah-tengah bulan sabatikalku ini. Seperti yang bisa dibaca di sana, dan yang followers Instagramku (@azilko) tentu sudah ketahui, seminggu terakhir ini aku pergi ke dua negara Eropa: Romania dan Yunani.

Walaupun di atas bisa dibaca rencana posting-posting-ku untuk seri perjalanan ini, sayangnya posting-posting itu tidak bisa kutuliskan segera; ini disebabkan aku akan pergi dalam acara jalan-jalan kedua bulan ini ke Karibia dalam waktu beberapa hari ke depan, haha😆 . Jadilah posting-posting itumesti menunggu setelah aku kembali nanti deh😉 .

Anyway, bagaimanakah Romania dan Yunani? Yah, dalam satu kata sih, keren banget! Secara teknis ini adalah perjalanan pertamaku yang agak panjangan sedikit semenjak perjalanan musim semiku ke Baltik musim semi yang lalu (haha😛 ); dan juga bertepatan dengan waktu ketika aku baru saja (kurang lebih) menyelesaikan PhD/S3-ku. Jadilah timing-nya juga pas sekali karena aku memaksakan diri sepanjang musim panas (dimana semua orang lain di grupku pergi liburan loh; dan perjalanan akhir pekan tentu nggak dihitung yah, haha😉 ); dan jadilah aku membutuhkan waktu untuk bersantai dan mengistirahatkan pikiranku🙂 .

Seru juga dimana waktu ini kebetulan pas dengan acara pernikahannya seorang temanku di Bucharest; dan juga orangtuaku bisa ikutan jalan-jalan denganku.

Aku rasa segini dulu deh yang bisa kutuliskan sekarang. Seperti biasanya, di atas aku unggah beberapa teasers (kece) dari perjalanan ini!
