Let’s put it this way: I’m not a big fans of camping. Too much hassles of building the tent, taking gas stove and all canned food, cooking utensils. And most of all, to have less decent toilet. That’s why, when my son want to go camping, I only have one condition: I will only going to do Glamorous Camping, or more commonly known as Glamping.
In Glamorous Camping, the campsite owner basically take care of your needs, from food, building and tearing down the tent, and setting up the bonfire. All you need to do is bring yourself, and some personal stuff like soap and medication. Don’t forget to bring some marshmallow too.
To be honest, this camping trip is the first in the last 22 years. I kind of enjoy the camping trip. I enjoyed sleeping in nature, with nature’s sound instead of Air Conditioner, wake up early watching the sunrise in the fresh cool mountain air, and the morning hiking to the most secluded beautiful place accessible only by foot. And Glamorous Camping site provide just what I need to go back to nature

And in case you pass through them, they will greet you and offer the food, with the signature smile of Yogyakarta.

With black instead of white sands, Parangtritis beach in South Yogyakarta might not qualify as picture perfect beach. It is also a bit dirty from natural and human made garbage.
