Missing Switzerland

March 26, 2016
Forest in Bulle

I’ve been busy with my internship in Jakarta. I’ve been drained by my internship, I can’t travel much these days, therefore I’m on ‘Travel Hiatus’ until I get the chance to escape. And the only things that keeps me going on with my life are my novels. When I can’t go anywhere and feel trapped, my novels take me to places. Well, at least in my imagination. Lately, I’ve been loving Cecelia Ahern books and my current favorite is “How to Fall in Love”. It’s an amazingly dark but humorous, romantic book. Cecelia Ahern is also the author of “P.S I Love You” and “Love, Rosie” (original title is “Where Rainbow Ends”).

I really miss traveling when I was in Europe. Right now I can only look at beautiful landscapes through Pinterest or travel books I bought from bookstore. And also regarding the recent news about another attacks in Belgium and Turkey, my heart just felt miserable and sorrow. I don’t know anything about terrorism, politics, or anything related to that but those stupid actions are certainly because of an egoistic thinking where they think it will benefited them where they only make everything worse.

And here’s some #throwback pictures when I was in Switzerland and felt like I was in my own Eden. Can’t wait to go back to paradise where know I can call them my second home.

Quoting my favorite phrase from How to Fall in Love novel:

“I realised I don’t love Maria. Whether I’m with her or not isn’t going to determine whether I live or die. My problem was, I was unhappy with me. You made me like me again. You helped me live my life again. And whether I have you or not, it won’t mean I’ll jump, or end my life. I need to be happy with me. All those things we did for Maria, I enjoyed them because I did them with you. I had fun with you. She may have been the reason, but you were the cause. While you were trying to make Maria fall in love with me, and make me fall in love with life, I fell in love with you” -Adam, How to Fall in Love
