Airports are fun, not only in Indonesia, but everywhere on the world. After flying to Indonesia several times I have seen the airports of Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Zurich, Singapore, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Jogjakarta, Denpasar, Surabaya and Makassar. Not an impressive number, but itís still growing longer. However the remote destinations always seem more attractive for me, a local flight in Indonesia, from Makassar to Jogja, with a short stop at Surabaya made me smile while thinking of it just recently. Itís just one of those experiences I should not forget about.
