A collection of Trinity's short stories about her traveling experience really inspiring. I'm reading this while doing my working holiday in outback area, Northern Territory, Australia. Some stories inside this book open my mind about a lot of countries over the world that really great to visit.

Minus 1 star only because some stories feel obsolete compare to current generation, in my opinion

It's always fresh and laughable even I already read this series for dozens time. Trinity is obviously a pioneer of pop travelogue books.
The way she wrote no perceived as a "guru" book. But from her stories, I've got my bravery for several solo backpacking since then.
Every time I need to re-read this series, it's always been a sign that I'm in the middle of "sakaw" of getaway trip.

This book is great.

It's been a while for not to read an enjoyable book. But this is the one. I can finish it in only 2-3 days, because it's so adventurous and funny.

There's some of ungkapan basa jawa that can't be explained.
I wonder if the non Javanese people could understand the fun of it! :)

Well, it's great for people who seek for a light and giving a lot of information book. And I really like to see the author! he he...I also wondering what did she does for a living so she can travel around t

This book really tickles me. Me the one who love to reads stories bout places around the world, me who enjoys watching traveling stories, me who always dreams to travel. But don’t have the courage yet to even take the first step.

Trinity wrote her traveling stories in a unique way. Kinda like she’s talking in front of you. Very much funny and from this book I could learn a lot. Highly recommended for those travelers or backpackers wannabe like me.

The Naked Traveler by Trinity is one of the best Traveling books I've ever read in my whole life. Too bad, there's no English version. But if there is, I'm pretty much sure it will be a best-seller.
She's so cool and here trips are totally amazing. The story of a true Indonesian woman's adventure. Funny, sharp, cool, and most of all, DAMN you Trinity, you're such a lucky lady!
Worth to buy and read.

Because I love traveling so much, the 1st time I saw this title, I was interested to read this.
Eventhough I traveled to many countries before, I haven't notice the things that Ms. Trinity wrote in this book.
It's aquite refreshing book with lots of funny stories inside.
I'm still in the middle of finishing this book..

Pretty much have good sense of humor on her story. All the backpackers must have been through the same thing. So for the beginner on traveling, you can get something from this book. Much to learn out there. So, hope to start the experience. And all things happen the way it is. But the truth is much more when you face it.

I loves this book a lot... She is not only telling us how beautiful Europe is... or how lovely our country is... (INDONESIA, heheheheh).... She also telling us the people that she met, the tricky thing when you lost your wallet or when you almost drive everybody in the plane kills you because you are late....

IT IS A VERY GOOD BOOK especially for those traveler

Well, trinity is simple told her story through her writings. Not how we could reach the destination, not how much money we need, but she tell us about her unforgettable moment whilst travelling around the world.

Trinity juga humoris dan asik bahasanya jadi gak bikin bosen. Paling suka kalo mbak trinity cerita clubbing gitu lucu aja.
I really love this book, so I gave 5 stars :)

A must-read for an around-the-world-backpacker-wannabe, a not-really-must-read-but-very enjoyable-to for the already backpackers :) Written in daily-conversational and full of details, every little one shaping up a big adventure :)

I was actually dissapointed the first time i found out it doesn't have any technical tips on how to be a backpacker. But it turns out to be a very interesting and amusing book. Added value is in Trinity's very genuine-young people style of writing. Greaat job!!! ...more

The best travel writer I know so far. She writes about things beyond the traveling itself and sometimes gives us her personal insight that somehow inspires us. But Idk why this is the only book I bought (and read) though she got 5 (cmiiw) books in this series already.
