Though we live in the different place, have different passion and goal, but one thing for sure, WE LOVE INDONESIA AND WE PROUD OF IT! That’s the reason why Travenesia was born for a humble mission: to make you sure that wherever and whenever we are, no matter how great other countries we’ve been to, Indonesia will always in our heart, place where we were born, grew up, where we suppose to be. Not just a travel blog, dude! Indonesia has lots of great things to share, even the bentor!
Live in a different place doesn’t mean it’s difficult for us to travel together. Yes, we make our own journeys, but if we have the time why don’t we set the date and meet somewhere? So pack the bags, buy the tickets and go! Explore Indonesia and show the uniqueness to the world!
