I Better to Cooked Instant Noodle Than do Mount Merapi Trekking Just Like My Guest

OMG is the first word that I can say when welcoming my guest in Boma House, you know what? cause they said to me “Bima I’m so excited today that you gonna arrange my Mount Merapi Trekking for me TONIGHT!” Yeah I’m not in a joke right now but I’m pretty sure that one of the important reason for this two Singaporean guy to stay in Yogyakarta is for the trekking in Merapi Mountain. Even for me who just a newbie in a mount trekking, I just reach the 3rd stage from total 5 stages in Lawu Mountain than I prefer to cooked my lovely Instant Noodle than continue to the top, LOL

During this 3 years in airbnb experience I server many times the Mount Merapi trekking tours to all guests and friends who come from the internet, email, facebook, and a whatsapp, yes thanks God I’ve got a friend who really concern about doing this extreme program in very convenient and safe. As I know that this lovely Merapi known as the most active volcano in Indonesia which has periodically eruption every 5-6 years, the worse eruption that I ever feel is at 2006 and 2010 which is make my city like a desert with 5 cm dust all around the city, my friend just told me that lets riding with a horse and wear a hat so we just look like a cowboy in Texas.

If not concern about my lazy style of trekking journey, I just saw the photos from my friend that this experience is incredible, the sunrise was really amazing, and Oh My God, think that I have my own helicopter to take me to the top, and I will go to Mount Merapi every single morning to enjoy the AMAZING SUNRISE!
