Dear readers,

You all probably already realized that this travel blog hasn't been updated for a really long time now. Nothing serious, just being busy and lazy actually. However, expect a reborn sometime in the future. Meanwhile, I just started a new personal blog and promised to update it frequently here.

See ya all!

Summer 2009 Updates

Gili Meno, Lombok

Here we are in the summer, which hasn't been so sunny afterall. Yet, your ticket is booked, and you're waiting last minutes to pack your clothes. Haven't got any ticket yet? Tight on budget? Worry not, there are still things to grab. Like the Air Asia's latest promotion, which is pretty mind-blowing.

Yup, you read it alright! They erased fuel surcharge before (read here) and now there is also no admin fee, so you only pay the fare and airport tax. And since sometime the fare is 0 (zero), the total price would be absolutely a bargain!

Another freebies to win from Lonelyplanet. Email them here with the answers. The first question is very easy for me :)

This is our last poll result. I asked about your favorite mode of transportation to explore the world.

Twenty one people took the poll. Thanks! The most preferable is airplane (28%), the runner ups go to both car (19%) and motorbike (19%). Train (9%) and bicycle (9%) both go third. There people opt to trek (4%), hitchhike (4%) and make it on hot-air baloon (4%). Yet bus, chopper and animals are the least preferred.

To wrap up this update, I link you to this funny and creative in-flight security video from New Zealand Airlines. It's a part of their new marketing campaign "nothing to hide". See the commercial here. They said it's featured by their real flight captains and stewards, all of them wear nothing but shoes and go all out with their painted naked bodies. Well, I'm pretty sure that from now on, the passengers wouldn't simply ignore the 'safety' of the flight anymore. Happy travel!

Ya james, Night life in Goa in India is great. You will think you are not in a country you are at a meeting point where all people are coming to meet. :) that's the importance of that place.
