Bintan! Woohoo for TW. He has a work trip for the rest of the week and he is over on one of the Indonesian Islands right now, Bintan. Initially, he wasn’t sure if it was Batam or Bintan but Bintan it is.
TW thinks it is amazing that he can just get on a ferry, for 40 minutes, to go to another country. I mean heaps of countries in the world can drive or get a ferry to another. It isn’t something so practical in Australia though.
We can drive to Malaysia from here as well so the ferry isn’t even the easiest way to get to another country. It is pretty cool though.
The ferry trip is pretty easy. You are going to another country so do have to book in advance and take your passport with you. The process once at the wharf is similar, but slightly less effort, to going on an international flight.
This trip is a work trip, being a big conference he has to share a room.
Twin beds are so close to each other it may as well be a king bed. I’m not 100% sure twin beds like this are great for strangers sharing.
Based on his excitement and the number of photos he took and sent over, TW likes the hotel and his room. Apart from some bumps I think he even enjoyed the trip over.
