The Sail from Banda Aceh to Weh Island

Many times when I travel I realize that I want to share what I see to my friends, family, and to the world. So here is the first video blog I made. It captures my trip from Banda Aceh to Weh Island last Monday, June 13, 2011.

I travel a lot to this island, for working or just to spend some good weekends. We can reach this islad by ferry ship (or should we call it boat?). It takes only 1 hour by fast ferry and 2.5 hour by the slow ferry from Banda Aceh to get there. Weh island has beautiful beaches and great underwater parks. You can dive, snorkel, or simply lay down on your hammock from dawn til dusk. However, this trip that I recorded was a business trip. We organized a workshop and focused group discussion to develop the guidelines for disaster reporting. There were 17 journalists with us in this mission. I will share some interesting points that we discussed there in another writing in this blog. :)
