born to travel publications
Our latest book published by Gramedia Pustaka Utama in mid 2017. Written with other 10 fellow travelers, it’s more on how to capture the spirit of traveling rather than the destination itself.

Travel Contributor

Disgiovery and publications are no strangers to each other. I have been writing some articles related to travel (and photography) and getting publicized by major print/online media in Indonesia. I don’t only write, I take pictures as well.  I don’t only travel, I explore with words and enthusiasm.

Print Media

Travel writing (and photography) for major print media is one achievement I’ve finally managed to reach. To name a few brand: GetAway, Venture, Cosmopolitan, HerWorld, Panorama, MyTrip, Get Lost, and XpressAir in-flight magazine.

I have also blogged some creative process of these articles:

Panorama | Antara Kuntilanak & Pontianak
Terpana Kerala On Panorama
Cosmo Men’s Surprise
Venture | Campuhan’s Pilgrims
GetAway! | Mengembara Bira Besar

Online Media

Book Publications on Major Publishers

Singgah (2013) is my first book published by Gramedia, the largest book publisher in Indonesia. I wrote one travel fiction in this book, along with other short stories written by 10 other writers.
Menghirup Dunia
Menghirup Dunia, my second book (written with 5 other travelers) published by Grasindo. It’s about how our travel experience has changed our perspective of life.

Traveling has brought me to the different perspective of life, of the world unimaginable before. This has inspired me to write travel fiction as well.  I have published a book and an e-book about travel fiction along with other (travel) writer fellows. Those are Singgah (published by Gramedia) and Supernatural (published by The Hermes).

Traveling has also met me with wonderful people all around the world.  They created moments for me to write them into true travel stories.  Fiction aside, I’m also going to release a travel book published by Gramedia in early 2015.  Wish us luck!
