“Big tent” was my second home in Indonesia – were “born” this travel blog. The place where I started exploring Indonesian people’s daily life, was dreaming. Where I started to plan my trips and got new ideas, met interesting people.
The name “big tent” was given by my mom in a joke when she saw my Indonesian home picture. It was a typical Javanese house in the Kasongan area, Yogyakarta. House is one open space with bamboo plait (“gedheg”) instead of proper walls, without windows, and have quite big open ventilation spaces in the ceiling. The water is from the well, the bathroom is outside the house but here is a small closed yard. Is a place where you can see running mice, hear gecko and clean his shit (he makes it all the time in the same place – in the center of the house), be bitten by bees in front of the door, eat food which ants already tasted, watch how snails and lizards live their daily life.
Even if I moved out from my “big tent” now, but in general, I think, all the world is like one “big tent” where we live all together under the same sun and moon. Inspired by the life in “big tent” I continue my journey and share travel tips, adventures, and colorful life from Indonesia and other Asian countries.

Before I was never growing plants at home (a couple of cacti don’t count, they can grow by themselves :)). But Indonesia changes people :).
