"...Wisdom Traveler is about moving on and stepping outside the comfort of locality, past glory and traditions in order to capture the hidden beauty of something foreign and the passions behind them. It is a cultural movement in finding something new to learn and in sharing something good to others by trying to understand various local wisdom within the colorful tapestry that weaved Indonesia together.

"It is all about celebrating and sharing these stories to learn how they can be relevant in our everyday life and eventually, as world citizen to take these stories beyond local border and bring them globally. Working with other cultures to find the inter-connection and mold them into one wisdom that can build a shared feeling of respect to build a better future."
