We spent a month travelling from Bali to Flores via Lombok and the Gili islands in September 2015. This is the place to come if you want to experience world class diving and some stunning secluded beaches.

We started exploring the beautiful islands of the Komodo National Park on a luxury liveaboard, which has some beautiful secluded beaches. The scuba diving in the Komodo National Park was some of the best we've ever experienced and of course we met the famous Komodo Dragons. We based ourselves at Labuanbajo town to explore the rest of Flores island.

On Lombok island we trekked up to the Rinjani volcano and enjoyed the rainforest jungle scenery in the Rinjani National Park, including the Sindang and Tiu Kelep Waterfalls. During our trek up the mountain we camped at the crater rim of the Rinjani volcano enjoying some spectacular views, particularly at sunset and sunrise.

The Gili Islands just off Lombok are great for relaxation, partying, scuba diving and snorkelling.

Our favourite thing about travelling in Indonesia was the underwater world. Diving in the Komodo National Park and around the Gili islands was just incredible! We saw reef sharks and turtles in almost every dive and at one stage in the Komodo National Park we saw 2 Moray Eels fighting.

Bali island is great for the gay bars in Seminyak. Ubud in the centre of the island is a great base to discover the Hindu culture of the island. We also did an excellent cooking course in Ubud learning to cook Indonesian classic dishes like sayur urap and jagung.

Our Indonesia travel video was made using the video editor “MAGIX Movie Edit pro 2014″. The music used is Hundred Miles by Yall.
