Travelogue: 2018 in Review

Tuesday, December 25, 2018

I was planning to write an apology introduction for being so silent in here, (unfortunately, this is my fifth and last post of the year) but I decided I didn't have to. If you were wondering why though, I can honestly say that I got caught up with a lot of unexpected changes of life in the first quarter of the year, which eventually lead us to the present day. Maybe these changes had affected the way I open up, and sort of taught me that it's enough to keep things just for myself. Memories of new people I've met, new places I've gone to, new spices for my taste bud; treating them as they were my safe haven.

2018 has been the year of many first/s and trying to figure things out in a lot of aspects. On May, my first photo book called In Transit: 23 got published by Kamboja Press. On July, I attended my first photojournalism training in India. On September, I had my first exhibition and sold some of my risograph prints. On a glance, I don't have any reason to be ungrateful for 2018 which has given me so many new opportunities. But the in-between has also been tough: new living condition, an absence of a figure, many failed applications followed by endless nights of self-doubt, and the list goes on. I don't know how many times I've heard this, but where did the time go? I really wonder.

This year's travelogue consists of my trip to India, a camping trip to Situgunung, Mt. Merbabu, and Bali.
I hope you enjoy the celebratory of my intimate moments! (prompts is from The Moon Lists, as usual)
