Because there are promo tickets Citilink Sby-Lombok airplane, and fad booking is there any matching date. Finally desperate to buy tickets Surabaya-Lombok Rp. 450.000,- round-trip; March 28, 2013 at 03:30 PM and 1 April 2013 at 05:50 PM …. 🙂
After holding the ticket just thought to want to trip with whom … ???? Should I go alone?
While looking for travel friend, also looking for info about Lombok, then also join in Backpacker Lombok while making itinerary … 🙂
When looking for friends, there are friends who are interested but after looking for tickets promo was not able to ticket, finally canceled. Well, already the intention if it must be a solo trip, its okay if I go alone.
It turns out that on 29-31 March 2013 there is a friend from Jakarta who wants to Lombok as well, we finally made an appointment in Senggigi on March 30 morning. Pretty good friends for 2 days 🙂
But two weeks before my leave, I hear will be an audit on 28th March 2013. “whaattt … !!!” that’s right on my departure day to Lombok !!! With anxious hopes, talking to the bos. He said ‘it’s okay’, told to keep going that important material for the audit has been prepared. Thank you Mr. Bos ….. 🙂
Date 27 March 2013, the day before departure, the morning before going to the office, dropped to Tugu station Jogjakarta to buy tickets Sritanjung train to Surabaya, leaving at 07:35 AM arrive at Gubeng st. at 01:34 PM. After buy the ticket, just SMS a friend who in Surabaya, asking if from Gubeng to Juanda Airport far or not? How many hours away? He said far away, could be 1 hour more. Start to panic, because of the plane ticket was written 03:30 PM, it means it must have reached the airport at 02:30 PM. If calculated, the time is enough with the train record coming on time. But, because this is an economic train that is never in time, be increasingly panicked. Especially after arriving home, my father also asked, why buy a ticket Sritanjung, not Sancaka Pagi? Sancaka Pagi is bussines train. My relative who in Surabaya also sms, even told me to leave this evening, afraid tomorrow the time is not overtaken.
That night is really a dilemma, to ask the friends who have been on the economy train, ‘the same time arrival hours listed on the ticket is not?’. There is a responsible answer, there is a reply most late 1/2 hour.
Then sms to a friend who in Surabaya again, asked ‘if from Wonokromo st. to Airport far away?’ and the answer is a relief, “oh, if from Wonokromo st. is near, at least 30 minutes”.
Once calculated, approximate if the train is late 30 minutes, so arrived at wonokromo the latest at 02:00 PM, run out of taxi/taxi ride to the airport, fitting until the airport 02:30 PM.
And that night I sleep with anxious ..: p
On March 28 morning 2013, my father drove to the Lempuyangan station and still suggested to ride Sancaka Pagi. Finally before to Lempuyangan st.stop by Tugu st. to ask for tickets Sancaka Pagi. Obviously, the Sancaka ticket for the morning was sold out. Just pray its enough time …. 🙂
Exactly at 07:35 AM, I left for the sloop train to Surabaya and at 02:00 PM arrive at Wonokromo st. Fortunately, my relative has been picked up and immediately escorted to the airport, race against time.
And it turns out the plane delay 30 minutes and just departed at 04:00 PM. During the waiting room, I open Lombok backpacker, backpacker community groups in Lombok, and send a message to friends and exchange contacts, and he would pick me up when I got in Lombok. It’s really a relief, the first day in Lombok I’m not alone.
