claudiakaunang Saya sedikit khawatir ketika ferry yang saya tumpangi merapat di Sea Terminal Douglas, ibukota Isle of Man. Perasaan khawatir ini sama seperti 4 tahun yang lalu saat melintasi perbatasan darat Slovenia - Kroasia dengan dikawal 2 orang polisi karena saya dianggap ilegal masuk ke wilayahnya. Padahal, sebulan sebelumnya saya sudah konfirmasi ke kedutaan Kroasia di Jakarta tentang kasus saya. Walau akhirnya tidak jadi ditahan, peristiwa ini membuat saya lebih hati-hati soal visa.

Isle of Man adalah pulau kecil diantara Inggris dan Irlandia, luasnya lebih besar daripada Singapura dan lebih kecil daripada Iceland. Pemerintahannya memegang kuasa 'Crown Teritory' dari UK tapi negara ini tidak termasuk bagian UK maupun EU. Karena tidak termasuk dari bagian mana-mana ini yang membuat saya khawatir. Apalagi sekitar 15 menit sebelum tiba, crew kapal memberitahu kalau ada batasan membawa makanan untuk memasuki pulau ini. Pikiran saya, kalau makanan saja dibatasi bagaimana dengan orangnya? Jangan-jangan saya nanti ditolak masuk karena tidak memiliki ijin... Ternyata kekhawatiran saya tidak beralasan, pada saat ferry merapat, petugas-petugas pelabuhan tidak memeriksa bawaan maupun paspor, walaupun dari gerak geriknya saya tahu kalau mereka mengawasi penumpang yang baru mendarat.

Lesson learnt. Always check everything before you go. I'm not saying that holding an Indonesian passport will make you less fortunate to travel the world, no, it's not about our passport. I'm reaching my 60th country this year and I'm proud to say that I have 5 valid multiple visas in this passport. I did all the visa application process by myself and went through everything (immigration officers, borders, customs, etc) mostly alone.

So don't get scared. Traveling the world, applying visa or getting what you want is not always about money or how much we have. Miracles don't come unless we work hard and smart. Get up and fight, plan, prepare and travel. Work hard and smart today so you can be here tomorrow.

Have a great weekend everybody!

keewa I remember I had a slight fever when I took this picture and I still went out to enjoy some nice weather but it was still chilly out so probably wasn't the best idea, it was still a good day. #mist #fog #bridge #dayatthepark #sunshine #ExploreEdmonton #alberta #spring #chilly #needablanket #memories #enjoytheday #view #bridgeview #almostsunset 1d
