"Neither the place nor the time that matter... But whom you spend it with..."My first trip to Pameungpeuk was a year ago, with my classmates, and non-classmates actually. It's 9 of us, in a medium car, not SUV nor van. So you can imagine how crowded inside the car.
Oh, by the way, Pameungpeuk is a region in southern Garut, West Java. It is known for its natural spot like beach, waterfall, and conservation. And for this second trip there, I was with my friends from Gemati (a Magelang group in my college), Amalia, Tutik, Bayu, Andre, Kiky, Nico, and Hamzah. We were planning to depart by night, so the car's rent fee was going to be optimally used by coming back on the next night. Such a reckless decision since there's none of us that really know how to drive. All guys here didn't have their driving license yet, except for Nico, that turn out to have a "shotgun-driving-license". I have advised them to go on daylight, but they insisted.
And the night came, we gathered at the car's parking lot in campus. We departed at about 9 p.m., Nico was the first driver. It turn out to be fine. Seeing that made us feel more at ease. From 8 of us, there're just 2 that have visited Pameungpeuk before, Hamzah and me. And somehow I just can't sleep that night. I closed my eyes, but didn't sleep. I knew that there have been driver change once. Andre drove from the time we started to enter Gunung Gelap. The road through the mountain was extremely curved, made me couldn't sleep even more. Plus, it was rain all the way from Garut and getting bigger once we arrived at the mountain, with the strong wind, that really made an unforgettable journey for me. The road inside was okay, until we almost reached Pameungpeuk, the road was so "no-no". Finally, we arrived at Pameungpeuk region at about 2.30 a.m. We still need to drive about 20 minutes to get to the beach.
