46 – the year of staying domestic

Today marks a full year of me completely not going anywhere outside Indonesia. Yours truly is now officially a domestic person.

At risk of sounding like a total snob or whatever, I honestly have never stayed in the country for so long since 2008. It actually feels almost unreal now that I’ve gone fully domestic for so long now.

Now don’t get me wrong, I am in no way claiming myself as a world traveler or the like, oh no no. I am definitely not loaded enough to do so nor do I have the free time. I’ve only gone to a tiny bit of countries every now and then.

It’s just that.. There’s always that tiny excitement of being completely anonymous in a completely unfamiliar place. That sense of not having anything to look after but yourself and your happiness. The liberating feeling of being detached from your daily thoughts & worries. I need to regain that to keep my mind working well.

Sigh. Right, self. First we get through whatever is happening right now, then we go wandering off to sun shine and fresh air, alright? One step at a time.
