This trip was one of the unexpected getaway I’ve experienced so far. We sailed through the sea of Flores for 4 days. Passing by island after island with crazy current hitting the boat, with some having a bad seasick. And spending most of the nights gazing at the stars. The boat took us from Lombok to Gili Laba, Moyo Island, Pink Beach, Komodo Island and Komodo Village and to Labuan Bajo.

Saya tak mabuk laut tapi saya mabuk darat.

From the sea we hiked up a 9-11km trail to reached Waerebo. Waerebo is a native village in Flores Island. Hiking up there was close to hell for me. Not seeing any signs of reaching points really tested me mentally. I was in the verge of giving up. I was really not prepared for this hike at all. At all. Steep sloppy stony trail for 6 long hours.
When we finally reached Wearebo, we were custom to their welcoming ceremony and the words that was given from Bapak Rafael nearly brought us to tears. It is one of those indescribable moments in my life.

Despite the lost of my wallet and I also made my girlfriend freaked the hell out of her life, I had an amazing incredible time with these people (Maros, Kareem, Ain, Bhai, Ikmal, Mierul and Ming) island hopping, hiking, trekking and ending it with a warm welcome from the people of Waerebo.
Penuh hikmah disebalik dugaan.
