Thetraveljunkie.org – This blog post is a series part II from blog post, A Walk Along Koonya Beach In Blairgowrie, Australia. I went for a coastal walk by the beach alone. I just strolled and listened to music. I exercised on the beach. I spent a glorious afternoon there. It was important to slow down and look at my life. To think about who I am – the empowering moments and the absolute f—ups that I’ve made, and how they are all part of who I am today. Blessed my life!

Check Out My AncestryDNA Results!

Thetraveljunkie.org – This year, I did what million people from all over the world have done and surrendered my spit to a home DNA-testing company. I hoped an AncestryDNA test would bring me the peace I needed; my Javanese family had never been able to give me any information about our family tree. I’d always longed for a country to attribute my brownness to, or for help answering the ubiquitous “Where are you from?” question. I’d spent years making up exotic-sounding combinations to justify my appearance (some days Javanese-Japanese-Swedish; other days half Polynesia, or half New Caledonian).

Meet The Bunny Rock At Montforts Beach, Australia

Thetraveljunkie.org – We had a really nice Easter Day! Then we decided to take a walk to the Montforts Beach, Blairgowrie, on the Mornington Peninsula.

The Bridgewater Bay With Tesalate, Australia

Thetraveljunkie.org – We came back to Melbourne in March for a few weeks holiday and had no idea we would end up here and not able to get back home to Indonesia. We had to do some online shopping for some clothes and essentials and amongst that we ordered a new Tesalate towel as we didn’t bring our Tesalate towels with us. We are super lucky to be isolating down on the Mornington Peninsula, Australia where we can still go to the beach to exercise including walking, swimming and surfing.
