Indonesian transport or how to buy 3 times the same ticket to go back to Bali. thanks to the agencies!!
Je vous avais parle des pitoyables transports en Indonésie, probablement les pires des pays que nous avons fait. Voici une anecdote cauchemardesque (en Anglais) d un hollandais que nous avons croise sur le bateau pour aller a Flores. Apres le bateau qui arrivait a Flores le mardi soir, il avait un billet bateau+bus le mercredi matin (30H) et arriver a Bali le jeudi matin, son vol international étant a minuit le jeudi soir...
Hello to all, Indonesien transports are probably the worse of all countries we did in Asia. Here is the story of a guy we met in the boat from Lombok to Flores. he had bought a ticket to go back to bali (boat + bus, 30 h) for wednesday (we arrived in flores in tuesday). I let you read below:

After the Komodo trip I just had 2 days to get back to Den Pasar, from where my flight would leave to Holland. I had bought a 30 hour bustrip in Lombok, all the way back to Den Pasar. When I arived at Floiris, I discovered that there was no ferry the next morning, and also no bus....
So I tried to arange a flight from Floris, but it was booked full.They told me to try to fly from Bima in Sumbawa.So after all I found a kaptain who wanted to bring me to Sumbawa the same evening for too much money offcource(no time to waste I thought) At 5 in the morning I was in Sumbawa and found a Guy with a car who wanted to bring me to Bima.
In bima I went to a travel agent. They told me they could still arange a flight.I just had to wait in their office. They would call me. At 5 in the afternoon(!!!), indeed I was ca lled with the message that this flight was also booked full...But there was a 24 hour bus which would leave in half an hour from the busstation.At the busstation I heared that this bus had an accident and couldn't start...but I found an other bus. This bust started at 8:30 and I could still sit all the way in the back of the bus....nice...
The next morning (the day of my flight back) the bus stopped in Badas busstation, west of Sumbawa for breakfast. I asked how long whe would stop. They told me 6 hours. Whe had to wait for other passengers.I would arive in Den passar at 23:30......too late...But...There was another!!! bus which would start in 20 minutes all the way to Denpassar. It would be there at 19:00
So I bought my 3th bussticket to Den Passar. And finally I was there. at 20:00. without sleeping for 3 days...
So I just made it back home...now I am going to pack for my trip to Brazil. I think I will take it a little more easy there.The French girl I met in Gili will come to Brazil too the last two weeks of my Hollidays so it's gona be fun.
