Travel Blogs from Jakarta
Airport bound finally my 2am flight has arrived. Still sleep deprived I feel I may struggle to stay awake and hear my boarding call. So, with that I am going to try having a nap and re-blog once I have arrive in the big city.

How has this hotel rated in the past?
This hotel has become my second home over years. The staff always remember me even as I have grown up and changed. Prices are on the rise with competition on the way but that still wont stop me from popping in even when not staying here.
