Hi There!

My name is Dada Sabra Sathilla, an Indonesian Travel Blogger. I am a free-spirited girl who love to travel. By far I’ve been visited 34 countries in Asia, Europe, and North America : Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam, Cambodia, Hong Kong, China, Japan, Taiwan, Qatar, Turkey, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Vatican, Slovenia, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Czech Republic, Greece, Macedonia, Montenegro, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Monaco, Spain, United Kingdom, and United States.

Previously I lived in Hanoi, Vietnam and Wisconsin, United States

When I’m not wandering around the world to satisfy my curiosity, I work from 9 to 5 just like most adults. I am a marketing & communications professional with years of experience as a tv journalist & public relations/marketing communications manager. This blog is my way to explore my other interests. Culture, history, architecture, and art are things that fascinated me the most in every journey. I love to meet people from different cultural backgrounds and immerse myself in new cultures. I write about places I’ve visited, mostly about the journey, food and my experiences to share & help you plan your trip. You can also read my articles on Okezone.com, Kompas.com, Koran Tempo, National Geographic magazine, Mytrip, Majalah MyTrip, also my travel videos on NET TV, Net CJ app, & Narasi TV.

  1. Hi there,

    Supposing i am an indonesian, and i plan to travel to Istanbul, Balkan countries and Greece, could u be kind enough to advice me on visa application?

    As i understand it, Schengen Visa multiply entry only valid if wr enter Balkan countries through one or the Schengen countries. How do I go about in this because i will fly through Istanbul first as my entry point? 😰🙏

    1. If you are Indonesian, you can apply Turkey e-visa online. The process is easy and fast. Where will you go after that? I suggest to fly/ go on a boat to Greece. You need to obtain a Schengen visa beforehand to enter Greece since it’s part of the EU. And if you want to do an overland tour around Balkan countries, maybe you can do as I had done: Thessaloniki, Greece to Skopje, Macedonia by bus; Skopje to Kotor/ Herceg Novi, Montenegro by bus; Herceg Novi to Dubrovnik, Croatia by bus; Dubrovnik to Mostar, Bosnia & Herzegovina by bus (take a train if you want to continue to Sarajevo); and from Mostar to Ljubljana, Slovenia by bus. Use Schengen visa to Slovenia since it is part of the EU and your Schengen visa also valid to enter Montenegro. The other Balkan countries allow Indonesian passport holders to enter their territory by showing a Schengen visa. Just prepare yourself for the passport check quite often at the border of each country. Hope my explanation helps! Safe travels
