Reaching Semarang

Busy morning!
That night, I slept over at friend's house and woke up early to catch the morning train. I honestly felt anxious of the thought that I'd miss the train because usually travelling with parents, if I oversleep there will always be someone who does the job waking me up from dreaming.
Countless of what ifs ran through my mind (what if we lost our way/our belongings got stolen/us girls got scammed?) and I remember kept assuring myself there is the fun of travelling-to let yourself go into the unknown and see how many spontaneous itinerary changes you can do to save your holiday (I'm a Perceiving type anyway), but still...
anyway at the end of the trip, turned out every scenario of misfortune only existed in this overthinker mind

It was my first long train ride, and the moment I saw the view from the window, I was sure it wouldn't be the last. Alongside watching scenery and play with our phones, 80% all we did was sleeping hahah no other entertainment 'cause the TV in front of us played this dance movie repeatedly for 8 hours straight (!!!)
Oh, and the train has charging socket available at every seat row, woohoo!

Arrived at last. Semarang's Tawang station looked historical, and it really is!
After dropped our luggages at the hotel we'd stay in the next 3 days, we had lunch at Chinatown area.
Then meeting the son of my tutor; the childhood friend of mine who has painstakingly come from Ambarawa, only to go back to Ambarawa again bringing 2 lost children haha.
By the time we arrived at our Ambarawa guest house, it was already evening. We were really exhausted from the 2 hour bus ride (the bus has natural wind-powered air conditioner huhu) + whole day public transportation travel and rushed to the bathroom after. I think it was one of the greatest shower I've ever had!
