Where should we spend our honeymoon? My wife and I had gone over this topic several times. Six months before our wedding took place we remembered an invitation we had received a year ago: "Come, visit us in Indonesia!
" Friends of ours, Doris and Michael, were living in Malang (Java) in those days. Why not? We had never been to Asia before. Should be exciting. Let's go!
Some months later we were on our way. We had to fly from Duesseldorf (Germany) to Kuala-Lumpur (Malaysia), then to Jakarta
. "Malaysian Airlines" turned out to be great choice! They offered a menu card. And every (!) seat had its own LCD monitor for movies and video games. :-D At Jakarta, the Indonesian capital, we took a flight to Surabaya
our friends dab booked in advance for us. Surabaya is is located in Eastern Java. Not far away from our final destination: Malang.
