After an 1 1/2 hour flight we landed in Yogakarta, found a small cafe, and fed the kids. We opted for the 300k IRP taxi straight to the archeological park in the interest of time. Total travel wimps - but hey - we've certainly paid our dues on plenty of crazy bus rides all through Southeast Asia previously. The taxi driver took us straight to our first choice hostel, which it turns out we were the only guests. The LPG guide about Borobudur was right - we were ...

We didn’t have a spectacular sunrise because it was cloudy. However, we did enjoy watching the light come up over the temple ...
... the middle of an airport. Once over our uncontrollable laughter that got us more nasty stares than if we'd just wet ourselves (apparently it's not normal to have fun) we proceeded to make our way to our hostel, Capsule Homestay. Being the organised dream team we are we had sensibly pre booked our first night on Booking.com to save ourselves the fuss of finding somewhere on our first night late in the evening in a new city. Little did we know, ...
