About

Agustinus is an Indonesian travel writer and travel photographer.

He started a ‘Grand Overland Journey,’ in 2005 from Beijing, and dreamed to reach South Africa totally by land with an optimistic budget of US$2000. His journey has taken him across Himalaya, South Asia, Afghanistan, Iran and ex-Soviet Central Asian republics. 

He was stranded and stayed for three years in Afghanistan. His third book, Zero: When the Journey Takes You Home, pioneered a new genre in Indonesian travel literature by allowing readers to experience the writer’s physical, spiritual and emotional journey. He can speak sixteen languages.
