A Getaway from Concrete Jungle: Bira Island

"Heaven was an inch before our eyes." 

On November 2011, a group of my University friends and me planned an escape from the sturdy routines of mad Jakarta. We drifted to Thousand Island located remote from mainland of Jakarta for a holiday. Bira island was selected as our destination. Using traditional wooden ship, we departed from Muara Angke harbor and moored for another 6-hours. Sea's zephyr welcomed us with 32 degree celcius plus heat-shock. We met a fellow mate from a friend of mine and several other travelers (even a Dutch lady who celebrates her University graduation by solo traveling to SE Asia) who shared same passion to enjoy the sea's life. Spending our time sightseeing, snorkeling, and relaxing, nothing could beat this Heaven on Earth.
