flying solo



This post is in lieu of the 2nd anniversary of  “Indonesia in My Pocket”

The most fun time in my life in the last two years was when I traveled solo to New York City.  I traveled all the way across the Pacific ocean and thousands of km away from where I live, by myself, for the first time since I became a mother.  I thank my wonderful husband for letting me have “me time” and looking after the boys for two and a half weeks.

I like holidaying with my family, but it’s nice to travel just by myself too.  No kids tagging along, no nagging husband.  For a short period it’s just nice to have myself for myself.  Being away from my little family make me appreciate what I have and when I am back I am fully recharged to be a better mother and wife.

    • Dari Perth aku flew to Melbourne dulu which was about 3.5 hours, then Melb – LA 13 jam-an kali, trus LA _ NYC about 3 hrs kalo ga salah…pokoknya lumayan pegel deh Feb 🙂 But lucky the flight all the way and back was smooth and pretty good, thanks to Qantas 🙂


  1. Cakep loh fotonya, chic gitu kesannya!!
    NYC is one of my favorite place to go. Pilihan yg tepat. I had the chance to travel with my mom and my sister sans kids or hubby. It was a different kind of trip, just enjoying the togetherness of my mother and sister after so many years living apart. But I was so glad to be back home at the end of the trip like you said…to be a better mother and wife:):)


    • Ma kasih Gaareal 🙂 Iya, bener kan…after a me time kita jadi semangat lagi untuk jadi ibu dan istri yang baik hehehe… Your trip sounded fun too, I would love to do it if only i had sister :p Yeah NYC is always fun, especially for the girls trip! 🙂


    • I thank you darling…soalnya belom perna nih ikutan give away kayak gini, selama ini nge-blogging cuma untuk dibaca sendiri aza, but lately setelah kenal beberapa blogger baru berani dey ikut ini dan itu 🙂 xx


  2. Aak at first i think you travel to Solo mbak, hahaha.. *dasarcahndeso.. eh mbak, ah sudahlah ikut2an Febi aja manggil mbak gpp yaa hihihihi… keren abis deh.. harusnya judulnya travel with style to NYC 🙂


  3. Yup, me time memang perlu untuk re-charge ya Mbak, dan for the hubby . . dia juga jadi lebih bisa appreciate peran sang istri karena dia juga merasakan repotnya mengurus keluarga selama ditinggal sang istri 🙂


    • Aaah…good to hear from the male point of view Chris! 🙂 Betul sekali, jadi suami juga bisa merasakan repotnya ngurus anak dan pernak pernik rumah tangga kan ya!
      Kita suka gantian sih, jadi ada waktunya I gotta let him go on “his time” too…biasanya mancing or hiking 🙂 🙂
