Dive Komodo

Komodo. The island of the dragons. F*ck dragons. We, sir, have scuba dived it. See, Komodo island is also home to some of the best diving on Earth. Literally. It’s so colourful, so diverse that I saw a shark, a turtle and a manta ray all in the same day. No, really I did!

So anyway, I finished the dive early because I was getting cold and tired, but mum and Guy, our group’s dive master, kept on going while I lounged on the roof of the dive boat. As for what went on underwater, you can check out mum’s blog at http://travelswithanineyearold.com/2011/05/19/sharks-in-the-land-of-the-dragons/ for more details. Bye all!

Bali and back

So. Here we are. Sitting at computers in a restaurant in Labuan Bajo.  Back from our brief visa run to Bali. It was actually quite fun in Seminyak and Denpasar. We were mainly (surprise, surprise) sitting on our arses in a restaurant with WiFi. But we did go to periplus to get some books. I got Percy Jackson and the titan’s curse and The knife of never letting go.

We also got a bedtime book about philosophy and such. And to be honest, that was our trip to Bali. Sorry for not having much to write about. :(


The boringest island

Hello all! I haven’t posted recently because I’ve been on Sumbawa. Sumbawa is a very boring island. We came in at the port of Poto Tano, then drove on and spent the night in Taliwang, and drove on to Rantung, which had supposedly got beginner surf. But the surf was huge and there were loads of rocks too.

So we stayed the night there and in the morning drove to the capital, Sumbawa Besar, in search of internet. None to be found. So we got our laundry done and legged it. And that’s how we got to flores.
