Flores / Komodo another kind of Paradise
One of the Upsides of living in Paradise, is the easy access to other Paradise Islands since Indonesia is an archipelago consisting of thousands of islands! In March I was lucky to have the opportunity to go to Flores / Komodo with a few friends. Leslie (www.jewelrygalboutique) and partner Ricky (aka Ramat owns Good Karma Cafe, Gili Trewangan), being a native of Flores had made all the arrangements. After a simple 1.5 hour flight, we landed and were whisked away on a boat adventure. The captain was a childhood friend of Ricki's and we stopped at deserted pink beaches, swam, snorkeled, hiked and dined on fresh seafood to our hearts content. I felt blessed to have this chance to experience one of nature's gorgeous pristine spots... although there was plastic on the journey. Stay tuned on how we tackle the trash problems in Paradise in an up-coming blog.
