In everyday life, there are in fact certain experiences that shape our perception of discovery. For me, there was one discovery that had a huge impact on what I think about discovery. This is the story about the time I travelled to several islands in Indonesia for the first time. It is a fact that I am a city person. I was born in a city, grew up in a city and so did my parents. I’ve never really known what it is like to live outside the city in Indonesia if short retreat trips are not included. Last vacation, my parents and i went away from the buzzing city of Jakarta and went to this small town, almost a village near the sea. Unlike the city, the town was very small and very forlorn looking. The worst part was that there was no wi-fi. This is every teenager’s nightmare, staying for a few weeks in a place without wi-fi. However, this suburb life made me discover the beauty of Indonesia’s islands. Instead of looking at my phone, I looked at the Indonesian island with jungles and hills. I did not expect to discover all the quirky animals and the spectacular views. There was a peaceful moment there when I stayed there instead of the city. it changed me and I understood after that discoveries can be absolutely beautiful and life-changing. I discovered peace outside of the city and I hope that I can go back there soon to find more beauty in nature.
