Itinerary, hmmm, it’s direct to Gili Meno, Lombok
An appointment with some friend … Checked
I went to Adisucipto Airport in Jogjakarta at 03.00 pm because the flight was at 05.45 pm. Arriving in the airport, we were checked in to the desk officer, then got in to the waiting room. My heart was beating so high. It was my best vacation because I was traveling with my fiance.
The time was 06.15 pm, there was announcement from the flight, I asked to the officer why the flight was not on time. They gave us the surprised news that was an incident of Garuda in Lombok Airport which Airport would be closed until unlimited time. Surprised me, I only thought how I can reach Lombok without took a flight.
I called my friend who will take a flight from Bali to Lombok. All flight could not be arrived in Lombok. Then I gave another plan to take a fast boat from Padangbai Bali to Gili Trawangan.
