Every year, I take a boat trip with a group of friends to the land that time forgot—Komodo island in Indonesia. This is the habitat of the famous Komodo Dragon, the world’s largest lizard. The dragon picked its home well, for this is one of the most alluring places on earth and certainly one of my favorites. We make our home on the boat and dive all day into the crystal-clear waters that surround the island. At sunset, we get back on the boat for cocktails—we come well supplied!—or take to the pink sands on the beach to watch the sunset. The perfect ending to another beautiful day in paradise.
To enjoy this unique tropical experience, take a flight from Bali to Flores. From there, get on a boat and lose yourself in the warm waters and endless skies. The modern world will seem a million miles away and you may even catch a glimpse of Komodo’s little dinosaur, if you are brave enough to trek into the jungle.
