Learning History: Just Visit It

Historical Trip + Coloring Doodle = Long Lasting Impression

It's been full of joy to get a trip, but spending penny on so-so trip just heard obvious less precious. By numbering calculation of stay accommodation, transportation, ticket of entrance, coin for street beggar, and any other possible fund are endless to talk. Wait, Escaping awhile from awkward calculation or you'll never get off.

Just pimp up your sight, every single venue you visit you notice something, even definitely exploring much more information from Tourist Information Center, friend, local settlement, or people around, are sort of the way you could add more value on your trip. Importantly just enjoy as cozy as possible, do not be mad for bad experience. Take it easy.

In addition, based on interest, I attempted to capture featured building/venue where I visited to emphasize the point of where people suggested to go. It aims to keep impression long lasting in the mean time convincing people to visit.

To be sincere, History class we may get in Elementary, Primary, Secondary or indeed College sometimes is not obvious to reveal what thing there is. For further, the only (in my opinion) way to make it works is by visit. Moreover we can get the breeze of historical/magical sense and exactly new experience. Visit it, then doodle it!

Borobudur Temple

A magnificent tangible inheritance from 800's A.C. is the remnant of Syailendra Dynasty glory buried for decades before re-excavation. Borobudur Temple situated in Magelang District , Central Java is recognized the biggest Buddhist structure in the world and has become one of world wonders.

Malaka - Malaysia


Malaka (Malacca), a historical city in Malaysia been well known for its influential history and cultural assimilation. For several turns Malaka governed alternately by occupation from Srivijaya Kingdom (Hindu), Sultanate (Islam), European countries occupation (Christian faith), Japanese, till present day re-existing as an independent Sultanate in Malaysia.
Malaka was the center of Malay World in the 15th century after moving the glory of Malays from Sumatra. The city has listed UNESCO World Heritage Site.

You're absolutely right. Though I think it's very important to get acquainted with cultural treasures in class or by having the luck living in an social environment with a taste for beauty, it always is a greater experience to see ( or hear in case of music ) them yourself. And that definitely goes for Borobudur.

Once more:I very much like your drawings :).

Thank you very much Colson,

Yes, it's also important to attend class, but would be more exciting and precious when we combine the method of learning by visiting the place we've studied :D
