Many years ago I was amazed by advertising one brand of TV with a beautiful picture on the screen. it was a picture of the 70 islands in Palau

and I dreamed to visit the place .. although Indonesia and Palau are neighbors share maritime boundaries, but there are no direct flights to Palau from my country. Palau seemed so far away from Indonesia hehe .. because I have to fly to the Philippines(manila) first and then to Palau(koror)

and when I was there I was informed that seventy Islands barred by sea because it is a protected area. and the only way to visit is to fly over the islands. Phew I must be dreaming again hehe

and finally on my last day in Palau, one of the company’s staff of scenic flights called me and I was surprised with the good news: You will fly today!
