UK : Stonehenge – The Mysterious Place (VLOG)

If i can time travel, i think i would want to go back to the time whereby Stonehenge was constructed. 3000 BC to 2000 BC. I am still amazed and felt so curious on how the people or giant back then set up all these crazily heavy stones. With each stones weighing about 25 tons with 3metres high and 2 meters wide.

I kept circling and looking at those stones, and got mind-blown by it. Somehow it just captivates me. Too bad, we cannot get near it. We can only admire it from a far. (except Michael Bay and Transformer autobots) Haha.

For some reason, they prohibit us to bring our own transport near the mega-stones. So, we need to park our cars in their allocated parking lot, and wait for their shuttle bus to bring us there, or if you like to walk and enjoy the green pasture, you can walk from the ticketing place as well. But it may take a while, since it’s pretty far from the pick-up point. One reason that i heard from the people there is, they want to minimize the pollution around the stones. So, even though the shuttle has dropped you at the drop-off point, you still have to walk for 5-10 more minutes to get near to the stones.

There are so many stories behind this UNESCO HERITAGE SITE. Like legend said that Cyclops giant brought over the stones and arranged it there, cause no one is big and strong enough to move this kind of stones. Another story is the high priest of Celts constructed these for sacrificial ceremonial. Then, some other said that it was built by someone who has a strong astronomical background, who built this to tell us the time and calendar.

No one really know who and how this megalithic pre-historic monuments was built and for what purpose. But since it’s already there, i think it’s our part to take care of this mysterious world assets. and Thank you England for conserving this so well up till today. Such an amazing place indeed. Feels like you can get a lot of inspirations if you linger there longer with some beer and picnic. Haha. Love the spacious green field, the noise-free and the clear sky and the cold breeze.

Manchester United – Old Trafford

Helloo everyone, how was your Lebaran holiday?

Be it travelling abroad or local, or simply just enjoying your quality time with your loved ones in the perfect Jakarta’s traffic. I hope that it was a great one for you and your family!

As for myself, my family decided to go for UK on this year hari Raya. I never fancy a tour trip before. But this one is kinda different. I quite enjoyed the 2 weeks of tour trip conducted by Indonesia local travel agent.

I am not sure if it’s the schedule that was quite free for us to roam around the cities, or the fun tour-mates that we had. Haha.

Anyway, we took a 13hrs and 45 mins flight that goes directly to Manchester from Singapore. and since we are in Manchester, guess Old Trafford is the right place to visit for the very first destination.

Well, i am not a big fan of football actually. So i did not have that butterfly on my stomach kinda feeling like others may had. But to be honest, i am very impressed by this second biggest stadium in England, somehow it just sparks ‘magic’ to those who visited them.

Manchester United is one of the football’s most successful club. Big Thanks to Sir Alex Ferguson, the Red Devil’s former manager. Even though i don’t really understand how the football industries work. But Sir Alex Ferguson must had worked his a*s off to make this team to be one of the world-known football team.

I think not many football club have their own stadium. And their’s is the largest football club stadium in all over England.  What an achievement, isn’t it?

Moreover, they have their own stadium and museum tour. Whereby all MU and football fans from all around the world can taste the glorious home base of Manchester United!

We got our ticket for 16 GBP (SGD 28 // IDR 278.000) for the 1 hr stadium and museum tour. We supposed to see the whole stadium and the changing room with other rooms too. But since we were late for our appointed tour. We can only visit the main stadium only. =(..  If you’re not going with the tour (who already help you to arrange everything), You can purchase it online as well, and see the available time slot. and Remember, Dont be Lateeee..

And for you who could not wait to buy their souvenirs, fret not!

Just walk out from the museum, and walk to the other side of the stadium and you’ll find the megastore!

FunFact : Gelora Bung Karno ( Jakarta football stadium) is larger than Old Trafford. Where GBK has about 80,000 seats and 76,000 seats for Old Trafford.

*Hopefully Indonesia can have their own stadium tour someday, and every football fans from all around the world will come over to Jakarta just to see GBK.
