A Road Trip to Jogjakarta – Part 1


I’m very lucky this Christmas get a chance to have a road trip to Special Region of Jogjakarta a.k.a Daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta.

Monday afternoon my brother suddenly called, “Do you want to join us to Jogjakarta?” and of course I said ” Yes! I’d love too!”

“Get prepared I’ll pick you up at 9”

Tighten your seat-belt, it’s gonna be a long journey!

===========

Jakarta

At 9pm my brother pick me up, we check up all the tires, full fill the gasoline, and finally depart to the first meeting point, Km 19 of Jakarta – Cikampek highway and meet another group there

We choose to take the south line of Java instead of the north, since usually most of Trucks and Buses choose to use the north.

Here is the track that we choose:

Jakarta Bandung via Cipularang highway – Nagreg – Tasikmalaya – Ciamis – Banyumas – Kebumen – Wates – Wonosari
(Wates and Wonosari are still part of Daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta / DIY )

*Cipularang highway is part of Jakarta Cikampek highway that lead us to Bandung.

After several hours, we make a long stop at Banjar to have our breakfast. Banjar is only about two hours from the outer side of Ciamis, West Java.
