I'm a Stanford grad student and I'm a foodie. Born and raised in Indonesia, I moved to United States when I was 18 to pursue my Bachelor's degree. Although I didn't grow up on traveling, I want to make up for it while I can especially before I enter the workforce in couple weeks.
I would rather have unplanned, more laid back travel plan than a very rigid one. Stopping by at coffee places along the way and have prolonged conversations is my traveling style. Even so, I would not compensate missing out on must-see destinations.
