Planning Our Trip

I am super excited right now. In fact, this is the most excited I’ve been in a while. Some other single ladies I know asked if I’d be interested in going with them on a little trip. Why is that so exciting, you ask? Well, we’re going to spend two weeks this summer thousands of miles away from home! It has been sooo long since I’ve did anything either this fun or this spontaneous.

An old friend of mine shot me an email last month talking about getting together. We hung out for a bit and then I remembered why we used to get along so great. We started buddying around and then I met some of her other friends, and together we’re like a match made in heaven (even if we are a little bit dangerous). Well, it turns out they are a very adventurous group and a few months ago they decided to take a trip to Indonesia. There were four girls going but one had to back out at the last minute, and Megan decided that since I fit in so well with the group that they’d ask if I wanted to go. Heck yeah, I’ll go.

Believe it or not, we’re not just going to stay at some posh spa / resort, sitting on the beach for two weeks. These ladies are crazy. We’re actually going to visit four or five different islands while we’re there. Of course we’re going to party it up on the weekends, but throughout the week we plan on going to some pretty remote places. We’re spending some time hiking, going to parks, and even visiting a volcano!

I thought we’d be spending a lot of time on boats while we were there, since Indonesia is a big group of islands, but I couldn’t be more wrong. It turns out Indonesia’s also a bit bigger than I thought. We’re going to be flying from island to island staying at hotel murah, but Megan did her research and booked our flights on a local airline called Lion Air. According to her, the prices were very good and the place is pretty well reviewed. Of course, I don’t really know much about flying at all. The only flights I’ve ever taken have been paid for by work, but from what Megan was saying we’re getting a heck of a deal. It’s been way too long since I’ve did anything this fun and this adventurous. I’m really looking forward to seeing what Indonesia has in store for me.
