Hi! Hola! Ciao! Cześć! G’Day!
Welcome to my blog! I don’t know how you landed here, but I’m so glad you did! This is my very first entry so if you’re reading this, consider yourself very special as I invite you to join my journey in becoming the #1 blogger in the world! (Haha! In my wildest dream! I feel like I am already using too many exclamation marks in this post).
Now, let’s get to know each other! My name is Indira, a 90s kid currently based in Jakarta, Indonesia. Just like most, I love to travel and have been working at tech-travel/hospitality companies. I daydream a lot about globetrotting – so far, only 25 countries visited! I was lucky enough to have moved around since I was a fat baby and so far, I have lived in 4 countries and 7 different cities. This has shaped my belief that home is really not a place as I tend to find home in the people I love (scattered in different continents) and good food (Hainanese chicken rice definitely tastes like home to me). However, this is not without a downside, my journey was certainly not all rainbow and butterflies. Although I am forever grateful to have been exposed to many different cultures since a young age, moving around also meant leaving and starting new. It was never easy; transferring schools, being the “new girl”, fitting-in, adjusting and especially leaving friends, lover, family (off to University) and my cats! Yes, another important fact about me: I am a cat lady! (I am that girl who records her sleeping cats and post them on social media – everyone must witness the cuteness I am seeing! I.Just.Cant!). I am often described as shy, quiet and calm (though those closest to me would beg to differ ha!).
I decided to start this simply as a mean to improve my writing, a space where I can spill my endless train of thoughts and once it’s hopefully up and running, I will be able to get into web-design whilst producing quality content! I am still unsure where I want this blog to lead to or which category this fits into, but I know I’d want to share about Travel, Cultures and occasional Life-Events. So suit yourselves and enjoy!

Yours truly, Indira.
