    Labuan Bajo

    July 31, 2019 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    I had one day in Labuan Bajo by myself which I used to enjoy the view of the harbour from a really nice coffee place and a stroll around the kampung next to the harbour. It's a great place to explore local life. I really enjoyed chatting with the locals and taking photos.Read more

    Labuan Bajo - Early evening

    July 31, 2019 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    I wish I'd had more time in this authentic little town. The kampung was very colourful, however there was also a lot of garbage - as usual. Later I went uphill to watch the sunset or what could be seen of it behind the clouds.Read more

    Komodo III, Bali

    May 21, 2019 in Indonesia ⋅ 🌧 30 °C

    Die letzte Nacht im Dorf ist kurz, wir verabschieden uns in der Früh von unseren herzlichen Gastgebern und fahren ein letztes mal mit der Nusschale raus. Wir sind an einer Insel verabredet, Flores Dive sammelt uns dort ein und fährt uns zu Tauchspots. Überraschenderweise klappt das auf die Minute genau. Meine Freunde gehen tauschen und ich schau mir das von oben mit dem Schnorchel an. Das erste mal sehe ich Schildkröten auf dem Meeresgrund schlafen und Rochen an mir vorbei ziehen. Nach insgesamt 3 Spots sind wir vollkommen fertig und schippern zurück nach Lubanbajo. Am darauf folgenden Tag fliege ich nach Bali und verbringe ein paar Tage mir Sören, Surfen und frischen Thunfisch.Read more

    Indonesia - Labuan Bajo

    We're in Bajo. Think white beaches, jungle, boats and fish. Beautiful sunshine 28 degrees. It's all of those things.... Except... Nobler forgot to check when monsoon season is, and guess what.... It's now!!!


    Wake up to a massive downpour on our tin shack.

    The tin shack has 3 elevations basically open to the elements... So we have loads of bugs including a giant hornet!! Ahh!!

    I'm writing this at 1000hrs why? Because Jose noblanos is sick again. We reckon off the planes sardine curry... Perhaps not the greatest choice in hindsight. Every (currently) 8-20mins he's off to the WC. As soon as he can go half an hour though we're off exploring.... He's just gone again but has to take the tennis racket bug electrocution device with him (supplied with the shack obviously) as the massive hornet has taken up residency in the bathroom... Of course he has!!!

    He has also defined 'I don't feel great so I am sick' I was like, so every time I bleed I'm sick? He's like 'no, that's self inflicted!' Ahhhhh!!!!!!!!

    Went for a bit of a mooch but after 200 yards Noblet had to run back to the room whilst having stones thrown at him by some begging child because he wouldn't give him money. He turned to give chase but decided to sort his aim out before he redecorated our hotel.

    The boats here are very skinny things which used to be made from a single tree trunk, they're now made from
    Fibreglass but they are all made on the island as there is an insane kayak import tax. They have a float on one side and a small outboard motor. They can fit 1/2 fishermen in.

    Decided against going too far aling the coast as it was all rocks and
    The tide was coming in so followed Noblet home.

    Had some beers while he bled and sorted out a trip to the volcanoes on the other side of the island.

    Had a lonely fish and chips with banana coladas for tea (while the cat's away!!!...)
