Our sailing trip around the islands of Komodo is one of our favourite moments in Flores. Not only did we hike, snorkel, swim, and see manta rays and a turtle, but we also managed to relax on the boat! The view of the islands of Komodo was spectacular.

Sailing around the islands of the Komodo National Park is one of the must-do activities when you are in Flores. The National Park stretches a total area of 1,733 km2, which includes the three famous islands: Komodo, Padar, and Rinca, as well as 26 smaller and lesser-known islands. The three main islands are huge in size and although they look quite close to each other on the map, they are not exactly near. The sailing trip is a perfect choiceRead more

I have been to Lombok and South Sulawesi, as well as the remote Ora Beach and I never saw anything like the beaches in Kei!

(Read the Part 1 first) After successfully got a good deal for the room, we dropped dead to sleep. We were just tooooo tired! I blamed the World Cup Final for this! 😀 We hadn’t had a good sleep until that afternoon. We were even woken up by a knock on a door and were asked whether we wanted to join for the snorkelling but we refused. We needed a good sleep. Come back tomorrow 😛 . We woke upRead more
(Embrace yourself, this is going to be a loooong post!) Yes, I went to Indonesia last June. It was honestly a sudden decision. Mom had been bragging me about coming back and I kept on resisting; hoping that I could plan an escape to somewhere in Europe. After days of "yes" and "no", eventually, I decided to go back.
