Wanderlust Indonesia is a socialpreneur project in which we meant to add values of traveling by encountering travelers and locals. Thus, aside of enjoying Indonesian’s tourism spots, travelers could contribute for locals development by doing social works in targeted places.

This trip to Krakatoa actually my third attempts and succeed!! (Yipppe!). I used to wonder is there any ecotourism based or community based traveling before? And Wanderlust come in the right time. The idea of the trip is not only wandering around Sebesi Island and Krakatoa Island. Dini and her friends begin this start-up for making more meaningful holiday and helping local people in the same time. I love this idea that is why I went to Krakatoa with them. If travellers have their own religion, my religion would be eco-traveling (besides light traveling of course). Just check our photos when we did all the missions with the school kids! WE teach, WE dream together, WE help them to think about life, and WE learn from them as well!

Perjalanan ke Krakatau ini sebenarnya kali ketiganya saya mencoba dan berhasil!! (Yippee!). Saya dulu sempat berpikir apakah ada ekowisata atau perjalanan berbasis komunitas? Wanderlust kemudian datang di saat yang tepat. Ide perjalanan ini tidak hanya berkeliling di Pulau Sebesi dan Krakatau semata. Dini dan teman-temannya memulai start-up ini untuk membuat liburan lebih bermakna dan menolong warga lokal di waktu yang sama. Saya cinta dengan ide ini maka dari itu saya pergi ke Krakatau bersama dengan mereka. Jika para pejalan memiliki agama mereka sendiri, agama saya adalah eco-traveling (selain light traveling tentunya). Cek saja foto-foto kami ketika melakukan misi dengan anak sekolahan! KAMI mengajar, KAMI bermimpi bersama, KAMI membantu mereka untuk berpikir tentang kehidupan, dan KAMI  belajar dari mereka juga!
