I really need to kick-out the mind stress. I spent the weekend 23-24 December in a short adventure in Sukabumi, West Java. Me+friends had a one night camping and rafting at Citarik, Sukabumi …woohoo! We arrived in Arus Liar camp on Sunday around 3 PM then checked-in the tent camp. Matrass & sleeping bags, meals-drink-snacks (Sundanese cuisines), clean toilet & shower are the tent facilities in a gorgeous camping ground. No worries of building-up the tent or cooking. There were even a “concierge” aka field manager checking our need regularly. We were enjoying the hilss and rice paddies view so much and listening to the sound of night small creatures was some experience.
Welcome...after 6 hours journey...
Just chill...view from our tent...

The next day at 8 AM was the rafting day on Citarik river…woohoo… We bought a 9 km package and that 2 hours was fun! The 2 guides were very friendly. Next time I should try the 17 km package. The photo captured below was the best moment :p
