Apr 30, 2017 - Last few days in Indonesia

Before you read this,I put an other one up from days before so if you only reading this and haven't read about our mountain climbing to Gunung Inerie yet, I suggest to read that first. One thing is sure and people should know...internet in Flores is rubbish. I couldn't join or use internet for days. One day I said, I'll be here tomorrow and then 3 days nothing. People started to worry. Well,I'm fine just couldn't use internet. Now, we are in Maumere and sitting in the middle of nowhere where we came by motorbike taxis. They had to...

Jan 24, 2010 - Across Flores, the Kelimutu

“Two million rupiahs for the trip to Maumere”, I had told the guy at the Gardena hotel open air lobby yesterday when he asked if I wanted a car. “On Java and Sumatra I normally pay 300.000 to 350.000 per day, so for four days and one day to drive back that would be about 1.750.000; two million should be a good price”, I had explained to him. At the Golo hotel they had asked 3 million and at the travel agency down the street 2 million and a half, but I reckoned that out of season that was over the top and indeed an hour later the lobby guy...

Sep 15, 2008 - Flores - Abschied von Ankermi

Einen Monat sind wir jetzt da, abgesehen von dem kurzen Ausflug zu den Waljägern auf Lembata, und die Zeit ist uns nicht lang geworden. Unter den "Sail Indonesia"-Teilnehmern waren viele, die einen Großteil ihres Lebens auf den Meeren in allen Teilen der Welt zugebracht haben, mit denen man aber durchaus nicht nur über ihren Sport reden konnte, zB mit Ulla und Peter aus Schweden. Er ist gebürtiger Ungar und war mit seinen Eltern nach dem 2. Weltkrieg nach Wien gekommen und seine Eltern sind dort auch vor Kurzem gestorben. Er selbst ging...

Aug 24, 2008 - Flores - das neue Ankermi

Flores - das neue Ankermi Nusa Tenggara, unter diesem schönen Namen faßt man die Inseln im Südosten des indonesichen Archipels zusammen, alles was östlich von Bali liegt, also Lombok, Sumbawa, Komodo und Rinca, Flores natürlich, die größte in diesem Inselhaufen und danach die Inseln des Solor- und Alor-Archipels. Dass wir hier so gerne her fahren, liegt nicht nur an dem Korallenmeer mit seinen herrlichen Riffen zum Schnorcheln sondern vor allem an Claudia und Kermi, die hier ein Ressort und eine Tauchbasis betreiben. Seit knapp einem Jahr...

May 31, 2006 - Ankermi

Die Busfahrt von Labuanbajo nach Ruteng dauert 5 Stunden und fuehrt uns durch wilde Dschungelberge. An mehreren Stellen sehen wir Hangrutsche, aber die Strasse ist ueberall zumindest einspurig befahrbar. Wir waeren in Ruteng gerne einige Tage geblieben, weil wir die schoenen Reisterrassen hier nur vom Vorbeifahren im Jahr 2002 kennen. Aber es regnet und alles ist schmutzig und wir beschliessen, morgen mit Doro und Micha weiter zu fahren. Sie verlassen uns am naechsten Tag nach 5 Stunden in Bajava und wir fahren weitere sechs Stunden nach...

May 2, 2005 - Moni, Indonesia

In Moni, near the larger town of Ende, we stayed in picturesque bungalows that look out across the road to a large green valley surrounded by high ridges. The rooms, though, we very basic and not so comfortable. Andy and I took a walk at dusk down to where the road flattens out in the valley floor. We were looking for photo possibilities, but we just missed the light. At 4:30 am. we drove about 30 min. to the parking lot at the Kelimutu Volcano. There we parked and walked about 20 min. in the dark with a couple other small groups up to the...

Apr 29, 2005 - Maumere, Indonesia

I talked with the guy who gave me the ride from the airport about taking me across the island to Lubuanbajo on the western shore. I had to either take the buses, which have a poor reputation even among the locals, or hire a car and take a tour of about 5 days. I checked with a couple of other guys about this and got an idea of the prices. The tour sounded great. We would drive to several locations of various interest-traditional villages, crafts, volcanos, lakes, rice terraces-and check into a hotel each night. This came to about $300 plus...
