  • Cerita

Hari berlalu seperti biasanya. Jarum jam bergerak ke arah kanan. Tetapi ada yang membuat hari ini spesial karena saya kedatangan tamu. Ya ! Seorang traveler dan juga blogger dari Jerman bernama Matthias ( https://sandflug.wordpress.com/ ). Dia hendak menuju Pangandaran, Jawa Barat setelah menghabiskan waktu di Yogyakarta. Saya menawarkan untuk mengunjungi Jawa Tengah, tepatnya Banjarnegara yang memiliki daya tarik wisata yang begitu indah. Pagi itu kami berangkat menuju Desa Gumelem. Sebuah desa wisata Banjarnegara yang dikenal berbagai macam objek wisatanya. Kami mengendarai motor menuju kesana sekitar 80 menit dari pusat kota ke arah barat. Matthias sangat menyukai Banjarnegara terutama makanannya, lezat katanya.

  • How to get there

If you use your own vehicle, you can just drive it from Wonosobo to Dieng. The sign and people will help you. If you choose public transport you can use mini bus and the price depends to each driver. Maybe Rp 15.000 – Rp 25.000, not sure about this because the last time I use public transport was 5 years ago.
