Desa Ngadas: The Village Above the Clouds

The kind people of Desa Ngadas will forever touch my heart. 

The whole Tengger Tribe showed me such benevolence that I couldn’t imagine that I deserved. Desa Ngadas is the highest village in Java and one of the coldest but its people are the warmest and welcoming of all.  They are simply the most wonderful people I have ever met by far in my life.

Luxurious Experience in Thunderbird Resort, La Union

Photo by Thunderbird Resort

More than a year ago, I was so near to everyone’s ultimate destination; a romantic paradise atop cliff covered with picture perfect whitewashed houses painted its dome blue, that is the Santorini, Greece. It just few hours’ flight away from Tripoli where I used to work, but unseen circumstances came, went home in unexpected time and failed to visit it. Depressing! Good thing is I don’t need to buy an expensive plane ticket just to see those white – blue houses in the Mediterranean for amazingly we have our own here in Philippines.
