Welcome to my blog!
My name is Marintan Ompusunggu and I have been blogging since 2010. Last year, I decided to do a total makeover of this personal blog by removing posts which were not travel-related.
This blog will be my online travel journal. Hence, you will read posts about my trips all over the world and reviews of places that I like.
I was born and raised in Jakarta, Indonesia, but when I was a child I knew that one day I would not remain in the city. I would travel the world and explore the beauty of places I could then only see in the books or television.
My first international travel happened in 2013, I was one of the chosen bloggers invited by Selangor Tourism Board to visit Malaysia.
From then, I knew that traveling is something that I’d love to do. I had a drastic career change from being a journalist to a flight attendant in 2013. I am still flying until today and I am grateful that this job allows me to travel to new places while getting paid for it.
Traveling for me is not only about visiting places and posting pictures on social media. It is about discovering myself in a new place, getting to know a lot of people along the journey, enjoying the nature, and reflecting on my life purposes.
Why I’m blogging?
Writing is one of my biggest passions and I’d like to document important moments in my life. I want to make this blog my online travel journal.
I hope whoever reading this blog will find it helpful, especially when they are looking for information on places that I have traveled to.
My aim is to make this blog enjoyable to read and I wish that it will inspire people to travel the world so they can widen their horizons.
Have fun reading 🙂

Travel the world not to escape from your life, but to find out the reason why you were given this life.
