Day 27: From A Distance

Oh bugger! I forgot to post this one last night, I was too tired after posting my Lombok travelogue. Anyhoo, better late than never. Here's my "From A Distance" photo. This photo was taken at Selaparang International Airport, Lombok. On the left is LIFT's (my husband's flight school) hangar from a distance, they park their Liberty XL2 aircraft there too!

Travelogue: Lombok (Day 5)

Well it was our last day in Lombok! Started the morning with super early breakfast (at 6.30 AM) with Jonah and Monique. Because Jonah due to fly at 8. 00 AM so we had to wake up early. Waking up early in the morning is a bit annoying yet you know what they say, waking up early means keeping your eye open to every available opportunity. Well, that's quite true. By waking up early I got the chance to have breakfast with my husband, no queue at the egg station (yay buffet breakfast!!!) and can put a lot of things on my plate shamelessly because no one was there to see it! Hahaha ((:

Before we checked out at the hotel, we spent some time at the pool bar and had a conversation with random stranger. This matured German guy actually has been living in Lombok for 23 years of his life. He's an engineer and a world traveler yet he always comes back to Lombok. He's in love with this place since the first time he got here. Well, after experiencing Lombok these past few days, I can see what he means. Lombok is indeed one beautiful place.

Then we went straight to Selaparang International Airport, which will be closed on September 30th 2011. So on my next trip, I'd be arriving to the Bandara International Lombok (BIL Airport). I was sad to leave Lombok and Jonah. But on a happier note, my husband came to the departure gate. He has airport pass so he could go in and accompany us until embarkation time. We said goodbye at the boarding room and kept on waving at each other through my way into the airplane. I flew back to Jakarta with another MD aircraft, this time it was a MD 90 also operated by Lion Air. As usual my fear of flying was making me super nervous yet God is so good to me. The weather was nice, the flight was turbulence free and we landed back safely in Jakarta. I'm so grateful for the wonderful trip, Lord Jesus! Thank You!

PS: See you soon, hubby! Hugs and Kisses.

Travelogue: Lombok / Gili Trawangan (Day 4)

We had a quick breakfast that morning, because we were going to catch early boat to Gili Trawangan. We stopped by a couple times on the road just to take pictures, the scenery looks so stunning! Even the view from the boat also super stunning. I love my beautiful country from the depths of my soul!

Then after 30 or 40 minutes boat ride, we arrived at Gili Trawangan! I'm in love with the crystal turquoise and deep blue seas, fine white sand beaches, the tinkle of a bicycle bell, the sound of horse hooves trotting along and some good music. For the first one hour, we rented bicycle (IDR 20,000/bicycle/hour - around USD 2.50/bicycle/hour) and explored half the island.  Wow really, this Lombok trip made me do things I haven't done in years! First beach volleyball, riding bicycle and also some beach gymnastic (you'll understand when you see the pictures below). And oh, if you decided to come to Gili Trawangan, I must tell you that 90% of the tourists are foreigners (where are my fellow Indonesians?) and most of them are European. I heard people speaking French, German, Dutch, Russian and some other languages I don't recognize. The rest of of the foreigners were Australians (judging from their accents) and few Americans. So if you're European than maybe only the view is different, but the people you see are mostly your fellow Europeans.

After we returned the bicycles, we chillaxed at this beachfront cafe called "Egoiste", good food, great spot at the beach and free wi-fi! Huraaahh! I was able to upload some pictures to both instagram and twitter account ((: My husband's fellow pilot friends were also came to Gili Trawangan so at the end of the day we hung out for a while before we left the island. It was really one great sunday (: I'll see you again soon Gili Trawangan!
