The Indonesian capital of Jakarta is not often where most foreign tourists visit. They might think of Bali or a beach. But for this traveler, a mileage run opportunity made itself available. I took it and wound up having a delightful Labor Day 2015 in the process.
With a single post, I found a deal of a lifetime. $314 all in to go from San Francisco to Moscow, Russia, and you better believe I jumped all over it. That’s not to say this trip was without difficulty, but these are the kinds of opportunities that come along perhaps once every 3-5 years.
