An Unmissable Experience In Central Java

Thetravelunkie.org – In Central Java we visited Surakarta, Wonogiri, Klaten, and Gunung Kidul. We parked everywhere and we walked for a little while to take some photos all around.

I think every single tourist there got one but being able to see the jungle whilst driving, listening to music and feeling the breeze on your face is an unmissable experience.

To Travel Is To Live With ANA Airways

Thetraveljunkie.org – A shot from a breathtaking ANA Airways between Tokyo and Jakarta. The pictures have a weird quality that make them look like paintings. To travel is to live. These days, travel usually begins with a mouse click – airlines, destinations, restaurants, hotels, even the best gear for an expedition, much of it either booked or ordered after minutes, or in some cases hours, of scrolling, linking, and clicking.

LET’S DANCE ANA AIRWAYS

Thetraveljunkie.org – When in the Sendai airport for our flight to Tokyo with ANA Airways, I took a long stroll through the whole airport to stretch my legs. It felt great to walk.
