I have been on many different boats and ships in my life and I loved every single one of them. From a rusty fisherman boat in Pulau Seribu and Bunaken, speed boat in the jungle of Sebangau National Park in Central Kalimantan, narrow motor boat on the shallow Krueng Sabee river in Aceh, water taxi… Read More Boating in a Mangrove Forest
One of the things that we love here in Le Sac Perdu HQ is taking a ride on a funicular. Why is that? I guess the answer would be Why Not 🙂 And that is exactly what happened during my petit voyage in Penang just a while back. I simply could not resist when one of the… Read More Another Ride Up!
We really love funiculars here at le sac perdu HQ 🙂 It was a gloomy afternoon when I decided to go up the Petrin Hill in Prague. The infamous hill was mentioned af few times in Milan Kundera’s novel The Unbearable Lightness of Being, and not in the loveliest light (people either got killed or killed themselves… Read More The Grassy Hill of Petrin

But my trip to Ranukumbolo kind of mend it a little bit although there was still no… Read More The Art of Not Knowing
Whenever I got a chance to escape the big city, I grab that chance instantly. No matter just for a night or a long weekend, but I’m there. Just pack my weekender bag and I’m all set. A great way to recuperate and be ready to be in the ‘jungle’ once more. So, people here… Read More A Day At The Beach
Imagine yourself being on the Swiss Alps. A land filled with greens, herds of cow, blossoming flowers, and wood houses. I guess for some reasons those things always reminds me of an old movie I used to watch when I was younger. Will I ever experienced it?? I sure do. On a fine summer day,… Read More Being Heidi For A Day
