A fellow world traveler told Amanda and I we could take a ferry to Batam Island, and get a glorious full page visa in our passport. When two girls obsessed with their goal of filling up every page in their passport finds out a detail like that, well, it would be a tragedy not to act immediately!
So, after conquering Singpaore, we had one crazy day in Indonesia.
We wanted to see the Indonesian island we were on, so following our massages we started walking back to the ferry terminal. It turned into the most dangerous walk of our lives!! 3 hours of walking into traffic, few sidewalks, and the midday sun beating down on us. We came across only a handful of walkers, but 100’s of friendly faces in cars and on motorcycles waving, saying hello how are you, and do you need a taxi. Delirious from our power walk, possibly dehydrated, and slightly lost with 20 minutes to spare before the ferry was to take off back to Singapore, we haggled with a guy in an alley, next to a run down taxi to rush us back to the ferry terminal! We made it!!
