My recent vacation to Samosir Island had been a short one. It was meant to be a reunion. My friend from Canada was coming to Indonesia for a holiday. She, my other friend from Medan area, and myself had not been seeing each other for 9 years (although we keep updating each other on WhatsApp, emails, phone calls, or even Skype calls) and we wanted to meet somewhere.
I was living in Duri, small area three hours from Pekanbaru (capital city of Riau Province in Sumatera Island), and my friend were born Pekanbaru and the other one is living in Medan Area so we thought that going to Samosir Island was a great idea. Tow out of three of us had not been to Samosir, although one of them had been there myriad time. It was great, because at least one of us could be guide for all of us.
It was a very short trip for such a big and beautiful area, so although we made seeing the most amazing ones, I felt like was not even close to enough. We decided only for the weekend because we already have our own plans, and that was it. So, the title for this post should be “How to NOT explore Samosir Island and Lake Toba in ONLY 2 days” – since it’s certainly won’t be enough.
