hahahahaha. So if I come to visit you in Bali, I can just hop on the back of your Motor Sepeda, close my eyes and not open them until we reach the destination? Actually I love them...B has two large BMWs in the shed right now just waiting for warm weather :-) Too large for me, I can't even hold them upright.

Hey, Paul, I see you've graduated from that peddle power bicycle, which you wrote about a few posts back, to a 'sepeda motor'. The worst place I've been to for motorbike traffic in Indo is Yogyakarta, where there are a large number of universities and hence students. Incidentally there are also a large number of hospitals in Yogya, funnily enough. 😲

Where Horses and Bikes are the Taxis of Choice

Where Horses and Bikes are the Taxis of Choice

Marooned on the Gili Isles, (off the west coast of Lombok, Indonesia) I had plenty time to consider how people, luggage and supplies are moved around this haven for sun-worshipers, would be divers, and those into serious relaxation; where the...

Heading For Flores, For here There Be Dragons!

Ok, I know, technically there aren’t any dragons on the island ofFlores itself but I promise, more of the big scaly fellows later. This trip was long overdue and so it was with great excitementthat I landed in Ende, the old capital of this Island,...

How can you describe so well Flores? It's exactly like this. And now that you have been there, haven't you ever dive? C'mon! You are in a diving paradise, (Komodo is one of my favourite spots) maybe with this I can help: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@catalina-serrano-madrid/the-best-diving-spots I'm planning my holidays and I was thinking to go to a new place, but all your reads are making me want to repeat (also is so huge that you don't have time to see everything in just one trip)!

that's right, sunsets are very cool there, and also, SURF..!!! Lombok is just 30 minutes away by tail boat to Gili. For diving Gili Islands are amazing, but don't forget Suñawesi and Komodo (Flores).

Thanks Catalina, I remember when Ubud was truly an artist village, not much more. Still nice, with some cool boutiques and restaurants, but lots of mopeds now. I learned dive in Hawaii and Bali, was never impressed with diving in Bali. Have never been to Gilli Island. Went to Lombok which is being touted as the new Bali - great diving there. I would like to explore more of central Java if I can. Agree on Kuta, except the sunsets are stunning (especially from Kudeta).
