You only need to post the message on one board instead of three (since all of the messages post to the front page).

Regarding ocean travel, I've looked into this. It's not any cheaper to take a boat instead of flying. It's actually more expensive based on what I've seen. Try Air Asia out of Kuala Lumpur.

As per above, flying is way cheaper than taking a boat. Perhaps you've read "Treasure Island" too many times my friend ;-)

Am locking this thread and the conversation can continue in the Indonesia branch as that is the most pertinent. Please don't cross post like this :)
