Mataram Airport waiting area

The Sheraton 'executive' waiting area

The last few days have been very relaxing; lounging by the pool, reading, listening to music and eating good food. Its so easy to get lazy :)

But enough of the life of luxury, frankly I can't afford it for long and also its not very exciting after awhile.

After all the fiasco with the ferry to get to Lombok, I booked a flight back to Bali instead of having to go through all that again. I thought we had made a good choice...

Well, its Saturday afternoon and I'm sitting at Mataram Airport on Lombok waiting for my flight back to Denpasar...and I just got word that Denpasar Airport is closed so I can't leave. Apparantly Bali is being swamped by storms.Its 5.15pm and my flight was supposed to leave at 4pm.

Not good news seeing as I have a connecting flight to Kuala Lumpur tonight.

On the bright side although the airport has NO facilities and the seats are metal with no backs, I found that there is a lounge for guests of the Sheraton so I have scored myself a cosy position for the duration at least. Unfortunately no free food and drinks like the Qantas lounge *sigh*.
