There are many reasons to travel to Indonesia. Gaining SM seemes an obvious one these days. In addition a good reason for me was the chance, to pull myself away from a busy eversday life and dip into a colorful and unknown universe - and come back fresh and "rebooted" only a few days later. And of course I wanted fly a lot... It's my pleasure to let you take part in my trip with Turkish Airlines to Jakarta / Indonesia. Let me concentrate on pictures and short explanations: The trip started on a Friday afternoon with a feeder flight from Cologne to Istanbul. Even though CGN is my home airport it was my 1st departure from Terminal 2. CIP is the lounge Turkish uses for its departures. There is a nice view to the tarmac, but apart from this there is nothing to write home about. TK 1624 was operated by A320 (TC-JCS / "Adilcevaz"). I like about Turkish, that they have little Menus even on 2-3 hour flights from Central Europe to Istanbul. Next point of interest was the International CIP Lounge used by TK, where my travel buddy for the remaining legs showed up after a little while. A little later TC-JNE ("Kayseri") took us from IST to SIN and on to CGK. Here is the A332 waiting for us to reboard at SIN: Perfect "base camp" for our small dip into a parallel universe was the Intercontinental in Jakarta.
