    Hello from Maumere, Flores

    October 24, 2018 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    We land in Maumere, the biggest town on the Flores Island. We spend sometime trying to find a motorbike to rent, without much luck and then head to some nice beach front bungalows, and arrive after dark.
    It's nice to wake up the next morning and have a suprise as to what it looks like where you are. Here and on many parts of the island the beach disappears at high tide and many have grey black sand. We spend a lazy relaxing day at our bungalow and Lila practises snorkeling in the sea and is more confident each time :)

    Under the sea adventures

    October 26, 2018 in Indonesia ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    Today we go on a little boat trip to visit the Maumere Bay, which is home to several islands and some amazing reefs. In 1992 there was an earthquake and subsequent tsunami in Maumere which resulted in significant damage to the reefs, however now recovering. Fisherman also practice bomb fishing, which has hurt the reefs as well.

    We head out on a wooden boat together with a Canadian family and German couple. Our first stop is an amazing reef wall, home to some lovely corals and lots of small tropical fish. Lila is excited to see Nemo and sea stars and lots of little tropical fish. Our second site is another equally if not more amazing reef wall with great coral and a huge amount of sea life. One of the others on the boat saw a shark, but we didn't see it. We then stop for a quick swim at the crack caused by the earthquake in 1992. There is some beautiful coral which has grown in this crack attracting some sealife. We stop for lunch at a picturesque beach before heading for another snorkel stop in more choppy waters. We then head back to our bungalows after a very nice day under the sea :)

    Back to Maumere Bay

    November 9, 2018 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 33 °C

    We head back to the bungalows we stayed at when we first arrived in Flores in the Maumere Bay. It's a nice relaxed place to stay while we decide what to do for the last week and half of our trip. Lila and I have a little snorkel in the afternoon at the front of our bungalow. The coral is pretty destroyed but is regrowing and we see quite a lot of little fish. Lila is getting a lot more comfortable with snorkeling and loves to practice her swimming.Read more

    Kélimutu : le volcan aux 3 lacs

    October 9, 2016 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 33 °C

    Les touristiques qui loge à Moni au pieds du Kélimutu se lève tôt pour aller voir le lever du soleil. Ils restent jusqu'à 9h et redescendent. Nous arrivons donc vers 9h. Le Kélimutu est à nous. Les lacs changent de couleur avec le soleil qui atteint sont zénith. Magnifique. Des petits singes sortent de nulle part pour se servir dans les poubelles.
    Nous repartons vers Maumere. Stop à Koka beach. Peut être la plus belle plage du monde. Puis pour un poisson grillé encore quelques heures sur la route avant d'arriver à Lena house bungalow au bord de la mer. Top.
