Parangtritis, Yogyakarta

I figure I’d better finish off the Yogyakarta 2014 photos before I revisit. At this rate, it might take me 5 years to complete blogging about a new place ๐Ÿ™‚

It was near to Indonesia’s presidential elections. Sentiments ran high, many took to the streets with their bikes and rallies, waving party flags loud and proud. Neither the sun nor rain could dampen their spirits.

We ended up going to Parangtritis beach, a popular tourist spot for both locals and foreigners. It was quite a distance from Yogyakarta town, perhaps it seemed longer to us due to the rain and traffic from rally bikes.

But got there we did, and what a sight for sore eyes it was.

Our guide drove us to a spot where we had to climb stairs to the top of a small hill so we could see the stretch of the beach. Only locals would know of this spot, it seems.

All right, I’m done with Yogyakarta 2014. Who even remembers what else happened there and then? Not me. (About) time to move on.
