Be a Responsible Traveler

Everybody loves traveling, who doesn't anyway ? After months or years hectic with their office-hours routinity, people usually will find their selves need to traveling badly. Some will traveling domestic, some of them who have more money will go abroad to enjoy their travel time. Well, no matter where n how you will go to spend your relax time, one thing you must do is BE A RESPONSIBLE TRAVELER !!!

Being a responsible traveler here is about cleanliness. For about more than twenty times I traveled around the Indonesia and two south-east asian countries (thailand and vietnam which are very damn clean country). Sometimes I really feel ashamed with my country Indonesia - I've been to Bali, Yogyakarta, Belitung and other parts of Indonesia and I always found almost the same cases where people throwing their trash to the street (or even in the tourism object area) as like as them so innocent kids. Even my friends who traveled with me, I'll tell you, I onced ask a friend who littering his trash just like that to the street 'why did you do that ?', with feeling no guilty he answered 'I didn't see trash can near'. Can you imagine ? he blame for no trash can near the area. Have you ever guy thinks if Thailand and Vietnam can keep their countries cleanliness, why we can't ?

You guys can do couple things to be a responsible traveler :

- First, do not littering. No matter what style you choose while traveling, as a tourist or a backpacker. Do not even try to littering. Put your trash into trash can. Remember, any small trash that we throw will affect the entire world. It could bring flood and any other disaster. It is affect to global warming. In fact people who carelessly littering in a public will commited as a criminal offence.
- When you find there is no trash can near you, do put the trash into your bag first or your pocket before you can find the real trash can to throw it into.
- It will be good if you bring plastic bag everytime you travel. So, you can put your trash into it. BUT,  remember when you find trash can, do not throw the plastic bag, remove only the content so you can re-use the plastic bag again next time.

Over all of those three points, one thing you should remember while traveling is 'treat the places you visit like your own home'.

duh lama banget ga kesini...
kalau semua orang sadar seperti ini, semua terlihat indah kali ya...
semoga alam ini indah bukan karena adaperaturan tapi karena kesadaran diri sendiri yang selalu menjaganya.
