Motorcycling across the Desert to Get to Bromo Volcano
Tourists would go with jeeps and go straight down and arrive in front of the volcano—where they could take horse rides up to see the sulfur volcano—but I took a motorcycle ride from the other side, where we had to go through forests with wild monkeys and a small distance through the desert. If you're trying to catch the sunrise (which I did) you'd have to start at 2:30am to get to the peak before sunrise and in the process you'll be able to see the milky ways if it's not cloudy (I saw a shooting star while crossing the desert when it was pitch black at 3am).
