Caught 0930 Trans Nusa plane from Bali's Denpasar airport to Flores. Flight smooth and I was so grateful for it rather than the 24 hour ferry over the choppy sea! Beautiful scenery en route. Landed at Labuan Bajo and after annoying taxi negotiations made it into town. A bit ramshackle and filled with mainly dive shops but scenery overlooking Komodo and Rinca islands gorgeous. Holed up in an Italian restaurant for lunch, then A went out to find us some accommodation. Once checked in to Gardena Hotel up on hill we went in search of some diving options for next couple of days. Turned out to be harder work than expected – particularly me getting an upgrade from Scuba Diver to Open Water Diver which seemed too difficult for many we spoke to! Finally settled on Bajo Dive Club, late in the evening, as I could complete my Open Water dives on the same trip as A the following day. Beer in Blue Marlin dive bar to watch the sunset then ate in Aneka Rasa restaurant – local Indonesian place – with dive shop guys.
