9 months has passed and new sunshine has come to our life. Gembolan has turned into Oliq: the latest backpacker in our small family.

During the pregnancy period, with bulging belly, relentlessly we prepared our baby to become a travel addict. Traveler from the womb. To be fair, it also satisfied our hunger of traveling.

Cibodas, Aceh, Batu Karas and Green Canyon, Ciater, Delhi and Agra, Phuket, Kuala Lumpur, Ciwidey, Merapi, Siung and Wediombo in Gunungkidul are among those visited.

Today Oliq is 22 days old and is ready to conquer the world. After all, he is named after Thariq bin Ziyad, the conquerer of Spain.
