Like popstars in Borobudur – Indonesia

If you’ve always dreamed of being in the spotlight like soccer players or popstars, then you have to take a tour around here.
We are in one of the highlights of Indonesia: the temple of Borobudur.

Needless to say how exciting it is to visit one of the wonders of the planet..
We come here with our inseparable backpack and a scooter (rented in the guesthouse of yogyakarta) and we’re immediately attacked by an impressive crowd of Indonesians!

Yes, clearly tourists around here have a particular effect, almost of veneration.
Firstly a couple, then a bunch of kids, then an entire group of students! Everyone wants to take a picture with the “strange” tourists, or maybe they find us particularly beautiful? 😉



We are just an attraction for them, something new that draws their attention.. something different from the routine of a life the seems always the same in who knows what village or Indonesian countryside..
And at the end of the day, we all have a reation to what is new and different.. What makes them different from us? Nothing.. If we love traveling so deeply, it is because we are so deeply similar to them.
