Growing up and living in the heart of Jakarta, we are constantly inspired by people who spend their lives in completely different environments. We’re not gonna lie, it’s always a love and hate relationship with Jakarta. There is so much to do, yet so little time. In between, a serious itch to hit the open road and to cross seas always calls.
Whether it’s a homecoming journey, a halfway meeting point with your long-distance lover, or a 2-hour drive out of the city, the definition of traveling is no longer a luxury, but a necessity. This time, on an editorial shoot with Planet Surf, the legendary clothing line that influenced most of our youth, we took a moment to wander in time and place. As mundane traveling places rebound and reintroduce themselves as somehow rather poetic: airport terminals, harbours, motels, and train stations. Undeniably, those places have become sanctuaries for those who have failed to find home in the ordinary world.
After we come home from a long trip, the city remains the same, but something in ourselves do change. Home is awesome, just make sure you leave once a year to recognise it. Bon voyage.
