Last week, I and my friend went to Yogyakarta. An escape from our routine as we got 4 days off. 😀
Before we went there, we had made an itinerary. I even asked help from Mas Aan to advice us places to visit. We took some suggestions from him. Thanks, Mas Aan 😀
One problem that had been reminded by him was about transportation. Our budget made us impossible to rent a car. Using motorcycle also not an option as I can’t ride motorcycle hence it will be troublesome for my friend. 😦
When we arrived at Yogyakarta, it was raining. We had no choice instead of using taxi to go to our home-stay. On the way there, I saw some bus stops and saw buses with sign Trans Jogja. Due to quite tired, I didn’t ask anything to the taxi driver.
The next day, we planned to go using other public transportation, beside taxi because it was too costly. That was quite gambling as we had no idea about transportation at Yogyakarta. But God helped us. We met an old lady and talked to her and she said why don’t us use Trans Jogja. They cover many routes. She showed us the nearest bus stop and that was at Kopma UGM. We saw a map there and, voila, it seems our main problem about transportation was solved. By using this kind of transportation, we were able to save our cost for transportation and minimize to use taxi. Nice!!! 😀

Finally, we were able to enjoy our escape although quite tiring. 😀
