When Dom left, of course it was not the same! However, there was still a couple of places I wanted to visit before leaving in Indonesia so I ventured alone on the last leg of my trip.

This last part of the journey was mainly for diving. I could not leave Indonesia without diving the amazing Komodo National Park and Lembeh.

Since I had quite some time available, I decided to do the journey from Bali to Komodo overland and stop along the way.

From Bali I caught the ferry to Gili Trawangan where I stopped a few days to catch up with a couple of friends. The second part of the journey was very long! I got from Gili Trawangan to Lombok by boat, then crossed Lombok by bus and caught another ferry to Sumbawa.

I got back on the bus across Sumbawa and finally a last ferry to Labuan Bajo (longest ferry journey ever, 8 hours!). The whole trip took about 33 hours! I know it was a little crazy but at least I got to see the beautiful land.

Labuan Bajo is the starting point for daily diving trips and liveaboards to Komodo National Park. I chose to dive with Dive Komodo, a dive operator that was recommended by friends.

I decided not to do a liveaboard this time and just did 3 day trips, 3 dives each day.

It was absolutely fantastic and I was lucky to get to dive three of the best dive sites in the National Park: Castle Rock, Crystal Rock and The Cauldron. I saw Manta Rays, White Tip Sharks, Turtles, fantastic soft and hard corals and much more!
