My Unforgettable Moment

          One of the moments that I can't seem to forget happened around 6 years ago, and it was when my family and I went to Bali by car. Yes, you read it right. We went there by car. It took approximately 2 days (if it's non-stop) for us to get to Bali. It was very tiring but also fun, because I could experience a new thing. We decided to go there by car because we wanted to visit the cities that we passed before arriving in our final destination which was Bali, such as Yogyakarta, so that we could visit many places and not only Bali.
          During the trip, I literally just slept and slept in the car. But sometimes when I woke up, I could see the beautiful scenery of nature beside the road that we passed. I remember I passed so many rice fields, which I believe they're not there anymore by this time because they are now replaced by settlement. Most of the times, we stopped at the restaurants that we found to have a meal. Just any restaurant that we could find.
          Before we left the Java Island to cross the sea and get to Bali Island, we went to visit Yogyakarta. We stayed in a hotel for a day. We also visited some of the famous places located in or near Yogyakarta, such as Borobudur Temple and Malioboro Market. That time was my first time visiting Yogyakarta, and Yogyakarta was a beautiful city, especially the Borobudur Temple. It was a very historical place with lots of uniqueness in it. 
          After we spent a day in Yogyakarta, we then left Yogyakarta and continued our trip to Bali. Because we had to cross the sea to get to Bali Island and of course, we couldn't do that by car, we went to Ketapang Harbour in East Java and got onto the Ferry Ship. The ferry ride took around 4 to 5 hours. It was fun to ride a ferry because I could see the beautiful scenery of the sea.
          Finally, we arrived in Gilimanuk Harbour and we got off the Ferry Ship. After arriving in Bali, the place that we first visited was the hotel we would be staying in during our holiday in Bali. I was very happy the moment I inhaled the smell of the beach, because from that I knew that I was only a step away from the beach. I spent a total of 5 days in Bali, and I visited so many interesing places, especially the famous Tanah Lot and Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK).
          I've never traveled to somewhere far by car, instead I usually traveled by plane. At first, I was against it when my family said they wanted to go to Bali by car, because I thought it would be very exhausting and not fun at all. But after I experienced it, it was not that bad. I mean, yes, it was exhausting and all, but at the same time it was very challenging and I had a lot of fun. I had a lot of fun because I got to visit many places other than just Bali. It was such an unforgettable moment for me!
