Along the way Bali to Sumbawa


Last Friday, we flew to Bali for a short overnight stay . The next morning our Group of 14 flew to Bima on the island of Sumbawa where we boarded a propeller plane for Labuan Bajo on the island of Flores. A charming village town reminiscent of Mersing but more heavily populated. From Labuan Bajo we took a speedboat to our 'live-aboard " vessel the Sea Safari - a charming replica of a Bugis schooner with wooden decks and cabins - which was to be our home for the 3 days. Sunset on the top deck curled up in a comfy deck chair with the breeze in my hair was one of many highlights of the trip !
