Until I posted on http://www.backpackerindonesia.com forum I got a new friend who would join me to go to Bali. It was random idea to go on Christmas holiday because I got several days off before joining Rinjani trip for the new year holiday (previous post). Here was the agenda :
Dec 24 : morning flight to Surabaya, had a full day enjoying city explore. Had night train to Banyuwangi. In the train we met several other backpackers who shared the same feeling about low cost traveling.
Dec 25 : arrived Banyuwangi at dawn and continued to take 45-60 minutes ferry to Bali. And off to Menjangan island directly. We met another two friends at Menjangan which had been in contact before, and we organized the share cost for one day menjangan snorkeling, it was about 150K each including the boat and a guide.
