Gunung Bromo | East Java

The coldest place I’ve been in recent history.  Cold, windy, and *so* much fun.  The best part of putting this post together was reliving the ridiculousness of this day.

We packed 6 people + the driver into a jeep at 3:30am to go see sunrise over the mountain, rode tiny horses part of the way – just because we could, and were almost blown off the mountain by gale-force winds to see… NOTHING!  Bromo was covered in clouds the entire time we were there and we spent a lot of the time in thick fog, having our faces sandblasted on the Sea of Sand.  It would have been a legendary travel failure if I wasn’t with such an awesome group of friends.

Oh, and just for good measure, I quite nearly threw one of my rather expensive lenses off the volcano. Because that’s how I roll.

I may have to go back to Bromo again when it’s not low season to try again to catch those awesome postcard views of the sun rising over the volcanos.

Romulo Rejon - Hahaha I had a similar experience! Terrible weather and no views from Penanjakan viewpoint! Plus it was a hindu festival and it was crowded with locals climbing to the mountain to do some offerings… A great day though!
