AIESEC to Romania - Part 1 - Preparation
Hai! 3 minggu yang lalu gw baru balik dari Timisoara, Romania for volunteering exchange with AIESEC. So, I want to share my experience. So, this post will tell you wht I did for my preparations before going there.
VISA - FLIGHT - INSURANCE
Okay, jadi ceritanya gw interview via skype sama mereka terus pas udah keterima LET'S GO Project in Timisoara, Romania dan gw harus nunggu invitation letter dari embassy Romania buat bikin visa (yang lama banget nunggunya tapi harus di follow up terus). Nah, kedubes Romania di Indo ada di Menteng, sebelah JEC. Berhubung dokter mata gw dari kecil di JEC jadi udah biasa kesana hoho cara gampangnya bisa banget naik kereta ke Cikini terus tinggal jalan lewat gang yang ada The Heritage Hotel hehehe, sampe deh. I had a bad experience pas bikin visa. Gw kesana sampai 4 kali, karena yang pertamaa without announcement embassynya tutup dan mereka cuma buka seminggu 3 kali, pokoknya semua harus dicek online dulu kalau mau buat visa. Kedua kesana, TUTUP LAGI. Akhirnya udah takut banget gak sempet berangkat karena udah duluan beli tiket pesawat dan gak pasti nih kapan visa bakal jadi, ternyata ketiga kesana bikin walau kena omel-omel (P.S. Mr. nya agak galak dan tegas huhu) dan jadi dalam waktu 2 hari! Rabu kesana Jumat lsng jadi yayyyy hahaha tapi bikinnya penuh perjuangan, I did it all by myself (ohoho so proud) dan pas itu H-1 UAS Thermodynamics! Gak sampai situ, karena koper gw yang super gede itu bokap nyokap gak bolehin naik kereta dari Bucharest ke Timisoara, jadi gw langsung beli connecting flight Jkt-KL-Frankfurt-Munich-Timisoara haaaa so tired banyak bgt trasitnya. Oh iya! sebelum buat visa harus buat asuransi juga, dulu gw buat sendiri ke Mal Ambassador hehe 1 jam langsung jadi yayy. Nah, karena gw transit 2x di Schengen Area jadi harus punya Schengen visa, dan karena transitnya di Jerman jadi gw buatlah visa Schengen di kedubes Jerman di seberang GI hehehe. Itu juga lumayan cepat dan akhirnya berangkat tanpa harus reschedule flight yayy so lucky!!! And once again, I did it all by myself by public transport, so proud
SOUVENIRS - STUFFS
Harus banget nih beli souvenir yang banyak banyak hahaha karena dipakai banget pas global village, makanan kayak keripik-keripik gitu juga, kemarin gw bawa emping, kue gabus, peyek, tingting and they loveee it hahahaha! Dan perlu juga buat tuker-tukeran souvernir sama other EPs and team member and also for childrens(bcs my project is teaching elementary children) bisa juga nanti dijual pas global village esp batik batik hahahahaha. Bawa pakaian tradisional juga buat globvil dan.... BENDERA, kudu wajib mesti bgt hohoho. Disana chargernya sama kayak Indo jadi ga perlu adaptor hehehe, bawa sambel sachet juga hahaha soalnya makan disana kebab dan yang tradisional itu asam-asam huft. I went there in Winter, dan gw sarankan pas di Frankfurt atau transit dimanapun itu pakai longjohnnya, berangkat langsung pakai boots karena sampai disana gw gak pakai longjohn dan cuma selapis kemeja......langsung mimisan! Pas gw nyampe temperatur disana lagi dingin dinginnya -12 degree C....untung masih pake boots huhuhu. Pertama-tama pas mau berangkat kadang pengen batal aja karena repot banget huhu tp pas udah balik kesini, OMG it was truly once in a lifetime experience tht I wont ever forget! You'll know yourself more and your country as well and the great thing is you'll have friends from all around this world! And pieces of my heart now is spreading everywhere. 2015 begins really nice to me
