I have spent my travel time through my home country -Indonesia- and it would be my favorite travel destination , where I could find so many nice places to discover, one of many countries in the world with its archipelagos scattered along the equatorial line, comprising of 17,504 large and small islands as the homeland of the peoples with more than 400 languages and dialects spoken in its different ethnic groups, and it was a great appreciation to our founding father on their hard works to unite those into one INDONESIA in one of a philosophy ‘BHINEKA TUNGGAL IKA’ which means UNITY in DIVERSITY. This would also be my great appreciation introducing Indonesia to the brotherhood peoples of this travel community, know each other and sharing a travel experience through this wonderful virtualtourist community.
