WW: St. George’s, the Capital City of Grenada

I know it’s a #throwback edition of my visit to Grenada, the Island of Spice as I made my journey there in 2017. 
But as I was just finishing the video of my little adventure down here (better late than never) brings me all those good memories back. And I have to say, St. George’s, the capital city of Grenada, has a lot to offer.

I stayed in Grenada for 4 days and most of them were filled with endless meetings.
Nevertheless, Grenada has been a wonderful host and we really got a chance to actually see the city.

had so much fun diving in Grenada..
So besides diving and Catamaran sail, I did visit Fort Frederick, the historical site of the country as well as the best spot to see the city from above.
Not to mention a little stroll we had in the local market.
As I have probably mentioned before, Indonesia and Grenada are closely related, as we both

Mini me and I way back then..
I was there for a UN meetings and in between, we managed to see the beauty of the lovely state in the West Indies of the Caribbean.
I was lucky to stay at the Radisson Hotel right by the Grand Anse Beach.
The hotel is lovely and I had the full view on sunset on the beach.  

Let's explore the beach..

Down town at the city, we strolled around the market and bought some souvenirs.
We went up hill to see the bird eyes' view of the St. George's.
I love it!

right in the middle of the city

The rainbow..

Here are some photos I took along the way.
Most of them were taken around Grand Anse beach, the famous white-sandy beach in the country, as well as downtown.

WW: Family Trip to Cirebon, West Java

Cirebon, here we come!
Have you been to or heard about Cirebon before?

It is one of the historical cities in West Java, which happens to be the hometown of my late grandpa from my father's side.
The last time I visited this place was when I was 16 year-old. Ages ago!
Well, we did stop by for a while, only for a quick lunch, when we headed back home from Semarang to Jakarta.
But this time, we really spent the whole day exploring this lovely city again.

We went here with my mom and aunties as well as my little brother and his wife plus my niece. It was quite a big group, around 11 people all together.
The trip was fun and full of great food as well as laughter.
Plus visits to our ancestors' palaces.
Here are some snaps from Sunyaragi Palace, Sang Cipta Rasa Mosque and Kasepuhan Palace, Cirebon

The roof of the Mosque..all made of Teak Wood. Beautifully crafted!
