a pleasure-hunting monkey.


“The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page,”
-St. Augustine

Edededan belongs to Edna Tarigan,  a Jakarta-based pleasure hunter a.k.a a Jakarta-based travel writer working as a journalist in the daily life.

I began my professional carrier as a journalist since 2010 in Jakarta, lived in Bali from 2014 to 2015, then moved back to Jakarta to chase my dreams. Here my LinkedIn to see more about my professional background.

Edna in Hebrew means ‘pleasure’. Some friends call me Ed, Edna and the others call me Edan which means ‘crazy’ in Indonesian.

I write anything related to traveling, culinary, nature, culture and other tourism attraction especially in Indonesia.
