    Abrupt departure

    March 20 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Due to the current circumstances because of Corona and advice from all sides, we decided to go to the airport to jump on the last flight home via Singapore. Things are so uncertain at the moment and move so quickly that we didn’t want to risk to be stuck in Indonesia, which closed it’s borders for foreigners today. Unfortunately we didn’t even have the time for a proper goodbye and everything happened too quickly. We just now at the moment that we will not abandon the project because of our leaving!
    Luckily everything worked out fine and the people from SilkAir, Singapore Airlines and the airports did an amazing job to get us home! We are happy to be home!
    Now we will have to figure out how to spend our voluntary quarantine for the next 14 days...

    Tropical paradise

    March 4 in Indonesia ⋅ ☁️ 29 °C

    What an paradisiac place we got to know: Coral Eye on Bangka Island is a dream come true. Surrounded by the most biodiverse ecosystems, we enjoyed diving in the coralreefs, paddling through the mangroves and seeing fields of seagrass. As a marine research center, scientists from all over the world come here to study the life beneath the sea. Probably the best place to put knowledge into action to protect and preserve this unique place.
    We hope to be back!

    Diving with Turtles

    February 26 in Indonesia ⋅ ☁️ 29 °C

    Many years ago, turtles were hunted and eaten in this place. Many stakeholders including governments, tourist sector and good people helped to prohibit this old tradition.
    Now, the population of green turtles and other species in Bunaken Marine Park is healthy and numerous again.
    If you dive here you have 100% chances to encounter a turtle, and they are huge! 😍

    Today, also @siladenresort is protecting or relocating unsafe turtle nests in order to ensure the turtles get born and go to the ocean. As these, play a key role on the health of the reef.
