Dreaming in Java… Post about how hard travelling can be…

After four days in a row waking up at three o’clock in the morning, walking (at least six kilometers per day) on indonesian volcanoes and temples of Java, spending at least seven hours a day in local buses, temperature jumps from +10 to +35 and a constant struggles with the local Internet, trust me, I had a right to be tired. And I was tired. Even after twelve hours of sleep, I’m still tired … but what is these twelve hours of sleep in the context of the previous four sleepless nights in a row… Due to the change in time it is hard to sleep here. Trust me that probably you will not have any dreams on Java… Furthermore, these daily fatigue caused by lack of sleep usually intensifies due to a constant battle with local residents. Battle for what? For everything! At every step, whatever transport you use – a taxi or local bus, they always want more money from you than from local residents. When you ask them what time does the bus leave they say that it leaves in 15 minutes. But you must know that this „15 minutes” means that the bus will leave when it will leave i.e. when it will be full. When you ask local people how long it takes to reach Bali by boat from Java they say (this time it is true) that it depends – sometimes one hour, sometimes even a whole day. When you ask them why it is like this they usually do not respond. You can know the answer only from your own experience. The answer is a traffic jam… Traffic jam in the harbour. Although the distance from Java to Bali is like 30 minutes for a man to swim, you can wait even a whole day on a boat until your boat will be allowed to get into the port … Arguing with local people about hotel bookings or your helplessness due to the fact that the driver of your bus stops the bus in the middle of the road for half an hour for no reason, is something normal here. What then can you do? The answer is: NOTHING. Just NOTHING. You must know that usually you do not have any influence on them. Indonesians do not explain anything to you (not just because most of them do not speak English …) and they always do what they want to do. They are how they are. The best thing you can do is just to laugh a lot, relax, chill and remember that in the end you are on your vacations 🙂 I reccomed you to smile as often as possible. Thanks to that your organism produces endorphins which make your holidays soooo much cooler 🙂 If this local, asian chaos annoys you too much you can always go for another holidays somewhere else… Although it is worth to be here cause nature is beautiful in Indonesia. What is the conclusion of this post? The conclusion is that the trips can sometimes be veeeryyy tiring;)

Greetings from Bali… 🙂
