I am now writing from the airplane to Singapore. I am traveling alone. I applied the Nederland visa on the 1st of August and got it on the 14th of August. My travel insurance is from 15-28 August only. I directly search for tickets to Europe but very expensive. I wanna try multiple city but end up the same amount of money. I would like to see more place (was considering Maldives, Thailand, Turkey) but I can’t leave my son too long. So I prefer to go directly. Return ticket is started from 950 USD. For 2-3 days I searched like maniac, only to see all the prices went up. Then I thought, if I am accepted to the higher step of the scholarship (announcement on the 22nd of August), then I must go home before 12 of September. If I don’t, I can go home up to 27th of September (expiry of my schengen visa). But it means, I will be away for almost a month. I think I will just come home around 7-8 of September. Which is exactly 20 days (3 weeks) still a long time.
Since everything was sudden, I have not prepared much for the trip. I guess I’ll go by day trip and see where I’ll go.
Hamburg-Brussels=55.000 (yes, it’s right. I hope I can do it)
total so far: 6.000.000. I should buy cheap ticket to go back home. Maybe around 4.000.000 until home. Seems like impossible, but hoping for cheaper price on September.
Early morning I went to Lubuklinggau airport. I just take 1 bag and cabin bag with me. It is more than 7kg maybe but I can’t remove anything anymore. I’ll buy another bag when I reached Europe.
My passport was still at my friend’s office, I ordered a motorbike driver from a App to send it to the airport. 9am I was in Jakarta, and my flight will be at 2pm. I’ve got 5 hours transit. I met with 2 first timers girls and spent time chit chating. I got the passport and went in to print boarding pass and flying. Got delay for 40 minutes and on the air for 10 minutes (busy airport).
I reached the home I am going to sleep in, it’s not that far but I was toooo tired. I didn’t eat proper food for lunch and dinner. After 4 times changing MRT and LRT, I reached. I can’t take money from ATM nor I can buy ticket with card so I must buy S$20 tourist pass for 3 days with S$10 deposit. But today my trip was only S$1.8.
I finally can eat, shower and rest. OMG Alhamdullilah.
I will post video on Singapore inshallah.
