I spent an afternoon with this view..
I was so lucky to finally got a chance to visit Labuan Bajo since I heard lots of good stories and beautiful pictures about this place.
This pictures taken from our phinisi boat where we spent 5D 4N traveling all around Labuan Bajo and visited some islands around.
The boat itself called Samata, I highly recommend this boat if you have extra budget for living onboard. Besides, it will be way much better if you choose this option for staying while you’re in Labuan Bajo. They also have lots of option for living onboard provider that can suite your budget.
When we arrived at the airport, the crew welcome us and preparing transfer to the dock while the speedboat will take us to the boat. They already prepared afternoon snack which taste sooooo good.
Since we arrived a bit late then the captain decided to stayed there and moving to another place the next morning. Everyday the schedule is like that, stop in different islands for the night and leaving early morning so we woke up with different view.
They also offered lots of water sport activities and also ready to take you for hiking to the nearest island that has beautiful view.
Such a day well spent and good trip to remember.
One of my best birthday celebration!
Got a midnight surprise from my colleagues and boat crew, got a special message and call from my loved ones, then continue with non stop celebration during the day.
The chef prepared special meals for all of us then we managed to do hiking to this place called Padar Island.
It’s been a while I saw some pictures about this island and never crossed in my mind that I’ll spent my birthday there.
The view was awesome and worth the hiking time. We managed be there in the afternoon so we can enjoying sunset from up above, make a wishing stones, then continue with another surprises which was dinner at a remote island.
I didn’t know they will prepared dinner in that island, nobody there, only us and the boat crew. They setup the dinner table and some candles, it was beautiful.
I feel so blessed, guess I’m looking forward for my next birthday, really enjoying surprises that life bring into my life.
Taking picture with Komodo..
Another dream comes true haha.. the highlight of Labuan Bajo is actually this creatures.
At first we have planned to visit Komodo island but since they are now on rehabilitation because of the fire happened monts before we came so we change to visit Rinca Island.
They have 3 options for doing the trekking which was short, medium, and long route. My suggestion is always pick the long route because the price is all the same. Price I’m talking here is some amount of money we pay for the ranger who will guide us during the trip and helping took pictures with that kind of angle (looks like you’re really close with Komodo). Besides that we also need to pay for entrance fee as well.
We spent around 1 hour to walk and enjoying the views plus taking pictures 😊
Overall it was a very nice trip and I hope I can make another visit my loved ones.
