Solitude for a badass traveller


Solitude, a much-needed one. I rarely get one, mind you. My idea, a tropical island, somewhere far away from civilisation. The island surrounded by crystal clear seawater, swaying coconut trees, intoxicating scent of the wild flora, white perfect sand and non-stop fresh breeze. Yes, that’s my idea of solitude.

But in the mean time, I’ll settle for this cold bitter coffee, kretek and soothing classical music in the background.
