A Change of Plans

A travel blog entry by jasonandgaryn


... the way they do. It was quite a beautiful site to see.

When we were ready to leave this area and head back to Ruteng, Gusti's rented motorbike was not working. After a few minutes of a few different people trying to fix it, Gusti sent the other motorbike driver to find a mechanic. Keep in mind, we were in a fairly remote village. It's not like they could call CAA and someone would come to tow the bike away. Having said that, a ...

Riung, Indonesia: Squelch of Poo Between Toes

A travel blog entry by samber

This is a top pick!

The gloss of finding paradise lost is starting to lose it's lustre due to the headache of travelling from place to place. The morning started off ok. We hired a motorbike and went for a drive to a traditional local village which was highlighted as a must see in the area. Nestled in a clearing in the jungle underneath the shadow of a volcano was the small village of Bena. Home to nine clans where two lines of thatched roof huts surround a central burial ...

The journey was on a single track road over the 'mountains' of central Flores and was beautiful and scenic all the way. Although only 65 kilometres it took 4hrs 15mins because we went at about ...

Close encounter with a volcano

A travel blog entry by mickoobyrne


Set off from Ende in bright sunshine following the beautiful coastal bays and headlands for another few hours of "S" bends and green rainforest. Honestly some of the bends are 165 Degrees and there is bend after bend, a 90 degree seems like a straight. I was just enjoying how great it all was and how much I thought Flores must be one of the most beautiful places on earth when I rounded a corner and there in front of me about 10 ks away was a volcano! It looked like it had ...
