Mt Bromo a must see item when visiting Indonesia

Waking up for 3:30am for a tour to do a “must see, must do” item in  Indonesia, is sometimes a sacrifice that you need to make. Thankfully I didn’t need to shower before hand I could literally roll out of bed at 3:15am, throw some clothes on and meet the group. Before heading to the small town of Wonotoro, I was told to bring warm clothes and that it would be very chilly there. Men walked around selling toques and mittens, the Indonesians...

Looking into a Volcano at Mt Bromo

Did you ever wonder what it would be like to look inside of a volcano? At Indonesia’s Mt. Bromo, you can see for yourself. The journey begins in Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park, in the far east of Java. We arrived at our hotel the day before and rested up for a middle-of-the-night departure for sunrise. After sunrise we took jeeps across the sand sea and hiked up Mt. Bromo. Here, some chose to ride horses up the volcano side. The hike wasn’t...

We met, bleary eyed and only half alert, at 3 AM to climb with our already-aching bones into Jeeps that were made before I was born. It wasn't a great beginning. I love a good sunrise, but I kept questioning in my...

A trip to Komodo National Park

Before my trip to Indonesia I had heard of the famous Komodo Island and the Komodo Dragons that lived there. I didn’t however realize that there was such a thing as Komodo National Park and that it occupied the “Komodo Islands” which consists of 3 big islands and several smaller ones in the area where Komodo dragons live and it is the only area in the world where they live in the wild. The islands are Komodo, Rinca, and Padar and on our two...

Close encounters with the dragons of Komodo

Some people will tell you, sincerely, that the movie King Kong was inspired by an expedition to Komodo Island. Others will tell you, with as much conviction, that the island was the basis for Jurassic Park. Neither is necessarily wrong, neither is necessarily right. Regardless, stepping off the boat, walking down the small wooden pier and into the forest feels like a trip back in time – to a land where the lost animals of history rule supreme. The Komodo...
