Oceans and Seas » Indian » Java Sea May 11th 2016

écrit par Sylvain: Avec un peu plus de cinq mois de retard, je voulais quand même vous partager notre sélection de photos, faite il y a trop longtemps maintenant!.. surement à cause de la nostalgie de nos aventures, même si notre quotidien est loin d'être monotone! C'est donc le 10 mai que nous avons quitté notre île d'adoption avec des petits avions, loin du confort de l'A380, pour arriver à Bali en fin de journée... très vite le contraste avec la circulation et la chaleur nous fait comprendre que nous changeons de monde! Les souvenirs de nos précédents voyages en Asie resurgissent. Ce sera le lendemain matin que nous découvrirons le cadre magnifique de notre hôtel, le Ubud Bungalow sur Monkey Forest road, là ou nous avons décidé de nous établir pour 12jours avec nos 50kgs ... read more

Three days at sea after visit to GBR although we saw lots of islands including Wednesday, Thursday and Friday in the Torres Straits where they used to trade the heads of tasty Europeans with the people of Papua New Guinea.

Everyone in Bali is either royalty or an artist. When the Muslims forced the Hindus out of Java the artistic and royalty went to Bali in the 16th and 17th century. I left yesterday and went through LA and then had a 13 hour flight to S. Korea. I will be meeting Paul Martin, Linda and Patt here in Seoul and then we will get to Bali just after midnight. Korean ... read more
