BOOK LAUNCH: Travel Young at TOMS Grand Indonesia



At the end of last year, I did not only got engaged but also got the chance to launch my (long-awaited) new book, Travel YoungThe book was officially launched on 21 December 2015 in TOMS, Central Department Store, Grand Indonesia. TOMS is definitely one of my favourite brands in the world, thanks to its awesome concept that when you buy a pair of shoes, you are also giving another pair to someone in need. They were going to open their first store in Indonesia, and I was flattered that they wanted me to launch my book to “open” their store!

The book launch was a rather intimate one due to the limited space, but I was really happy because a lot of media friends came, a couple of close friends, and my partner were there to give their utmost support. :)

Travel Young is basically a travel memoir that documents my journey to a number of destinations, mainly outside Indonesia, to attend conferences or speak on behalf of young Indonesians in international forums. I shared my journey to those places, as well as my journey on growing up and embracing adulthood — a process I had never thought could be documented in writing.

Have you read Travel Young? If so, kindly let me know what you think! And if you haven’t, go grab it at the nearest book stores (including online).
