AirAsia plays with passengers Every once in a while I do get to fly short distances in Indonesia. Because I don't fly to very exotic destinations which can only be reached once every few days, I often have the choice between several operators. That puts back the fun in flying a little bit, because looking for the right tickets is part of the travel already.

Buka botol in B.A.T.S. It was a regular Friday night on which my girlfriend and I decided to go clubbing. Not that same night because that would mean we had to hurry to go out, something that is not really beneficial and something I don't want to do at all. So not tonight, but the next night, the malam minggu (the evening before Sunday, so Saturday night) we would go to Jakarta.

The bus trip from Surabaya to Malang Sitting in a bus is not something that I do with the greatest love. However every once in a while I will still do something that I don't want to do every single day. After the flight from Yogyakarta to Surabaya in the early morning, I didn't reach my final destination for the day - by far. But fortunately I had already taken that into account when I booked the ticket. At that time I decided to use only public transport to find my way to Malang, which was my final destination for the day.
