1. At the new year eve 2012 as usual , me and my cousin had a regular activity. It was
gathering to celebrate new years and set off fireworks . We shared each other our own
experience and of course laugh together. Aji my aunt’s son who was very innocent at all he
always became the jokes when we still having chat together. Different with Helmi, he always
gives humorous which was made to break the ice. While we talked each other, We also
planned to have vacation together. Armed with people’s stories on the blog about a trip to
Karimunjawa , we finally decided going there in February . Unfortunately after we looked for
infos about that, we got the result that in January through March is the month where there
was no crossing by ferry from Jepara to Karimunjawa. Then we decided to go there in July
2012 to see the paradise in the north of java .
In 5 July 2012 we had been in Jepara because it was the city where our grandpa lived
here. Finally the day we were waiting for is coming. I went to Karimunjawa Island with 5
others. My uncle drove us down to the Kartini Port. Here was the place that required us to reregister and gathered with the other tour group. We will spend 4 days and 3 nights.
We got into the boat Muria . This boat is not too big but comfortable. The trip to
Karimun with KMP Muria would take approximately 6 hours. Unfortunately there was
something trouble, the halyard stuck in the propeller fan. Consequently the departure was
delayed until 1 hour.
Arriving in Karimunjawa, we immediately checked in homestay, unpack, cleaned-up
and looking for dinner. On that night I decided to sleep early to restore power that has been
drained today .
Saturday till Sunday was the best day I was waiting for because I could do my hobby, it
was playing water. Saturday to Sunday schedule was so full time. It began with ice breaking
then snorkeling on the island of
Menjangan Besar, Menjangan Kecil , Cemara Besar,
Tengah, Kecil, Gosong, etc. Then we grilled fish.
Armed with a snorkel, fins, and mask borrowing from the swim equipment rent. Then
went to the port. Along the way to snorkelling spots I was amazed the beauty of the
surrounding scenery. Amazing ..! Without further ado, all the equipment we had being wear
and.. BYUURR!! Just dabbling with seawater for a while, it feels cold and the seawater
seems so clear. So looking downed, there was a lot of fish over here. The coral reefs here are
still very nice and I think it should be preserved. I feel very happy because that was the first
2. time I could joy and see the underwater paradise which is located on the northern tip of Java
After snorkelling, certainly we felt starving. We had a lunch was always accompanied
by grilled fish menus which is very tasty. Near the beach there were a shark breeding. Here
we could swim with small sharks . But I decided not to swim. Then in the afternoon we saw
beautiful sunset in the nirvana beach.
The next day at 07.00 we were already in the Port returned to Jepara. At 14.00 we
arrived in Jepara. When I got there, we still might wait my uncle to pick us to our
