The Indonesia Tour de Horror 2014

Meski di Vietnam sekarang saya berpikir tentang Indonesia setiap hari. Aku kangen teman-teman saya disana, pantai bagus, wanita cantik, tapi banyak saya rindu makanan maknyuus. Pada April 24 Vietnam visa saya habis dan kemudian gue pulang ke Indonesia. Tapi mau apa ketika saya kembali? Saya sudah jalan-jalan semua Java, Bali, dan Lombok pakai motor. Sudah melakukan video pendek dengan teman saya Riyanni. Melakukan New Famili 100 dengan teman saya Jenn. Apa mungkin aku bisa lakukan untuk melebihi semua itu?

Although I am in Vietnam right now I still think about Indonesia every day. I miss my friends, the great beaches, the beautiful women, and most of all the delicious food! On April 24th my Vietnam visa expires and then I will be heading home to Indonesia. But what to do when I get back? I’ve already motorcycled all of Java, Bali, and Lombok. I did a short tourism film with my friend Riyanni. I got to go on national TV and do a game show with my friend Jenn. What can I possibly do to top all of that?

Kemudian saya punya ide!

  And then it hit me!

Indonesia punya tempat berhantu banyak… jadi mengapa tidak jalan-jalan ke sebanyak mungkin lokasi berhantu yang aku bisa! Coba lihat apa petualangan menakutkan yang gue dapat temukan! Aku juga bisa rekam semua itu pada video dan buat YouTube series untuk dokumentasikan penemuan saya. Itu akan jadi riset yang bagus juga untuk buku pertama saya — yang akan berisi tentang Indonesia 🙂 Ketika bule pikir tentang Indonesia mereka hanya tahu Bali. Gue mau buktikan kalau ada banyak hal lain di negara menakjubkan ini dan tidak cuma satu pulau.

Indonesia has no shortage of haunted sites…so why not travel around and visit as many haunted places as I can! Let’s see what kind of scary adventures I can get myself into. Plus I can document it all on video and do a series of YouTube videos (or vlogs) documenting my findings. It will also be great research for my first book — which will be on Indonesia 🙂 When foreigners think of Indonesia they only think of Bali. I want to prove that there is so much more to this amazing country that just that one island.

Jadi di bulan Mei gue akan pergi untuk Tur de Horor, petualangan besar ke sebanyak mungkin lokasi berhantu di Indonesia yang gue bisa temukan. Satu2nya masalah? Indonesia adalah negara besar dan gue baru enam bulan disana, gue tidak mungkin tau semua lokasi berhantu. Itu adalah kenapa saya perlu bantuan kamu. Saya mau kamu memberitahu ke mana saya harus pergi jadi gue bisa mulai merencanakan rute saya.

So this May I will be departing on my Tour de Horror, a grand adventure to as many haunted locations in Indonesia as I can find. The only problem? Indonesia is such a huge country and having only spent six months there, I cannot possibly hope to know of all the haunted hotspots. That is why I need your help. I want you to tell me where to go visit so that I can start planning a route.
