Nusa Tenggara


It’s only a few months ago and I missed all of my travel pals already.

In travelling together you will see the real quality of each person that you may not see in daily routine life.You may find a little “crack” but still they are the best among the best I guess 🙂

Some of my friends start the journey from Bandung (West Java) using an old VW Combi. We call it “Odong-Odong Negriku”

In choosing a travel destination, we usually decide from the specialty of the location, and the destination we choose now is Mount Tambora, probably the most destructive stratovolcano (recorded) in Indonesia with Volcanic Explosivity Index (VEI) 7. And in exactly April 10 2015, Tambora celebrate 200 years of the explosion, the explosion that cause a year without a summer. source: WIkipedia.org

While some of my friends choose to use the Combi and make some stop in several beautiful places, I choose to  take the plane until Lombok Island.

I use the second flight to Lombok, while some friends arrived in the afternoon.

To kill the time, me and somefriends who arrived earlier (using Odong-Odong Nusantara) decide to relax at the beach.

Suprisingly we found several beautiful spots on the way there.

We make a stop to take some picture on a small hill that we believe will give the best view.

People think that the New 7 Wonder of Nature Committee will strike Komodo Island off after Indonesian Government step back from the election, that’s not true, since Komodo Island is the only place that has prehistoric animals living in, the island is still on the game.

The picture above show the color of the sand in Komodo Island area, which differentiate them to other beaches, a lot of unique things you can find here, not only the pink sand, but also the flora and the fauna, the animal called Komodo, that are believed as one of the living creatures from the dinosaur era. In these islands they still have a chance to live.

This National Park has been selected to be one of the finalist for the new 7 wonder of nature, unfortunately it will cost Indonesian Government a lot of money to make this island as the place for winner announcement.

People didn’t understand, that even though Indonesian Government decide not to give payment to make this island as the declaration place, it doesn’t mean this Island taken out from the election. Please help to vote for this National Park, to make sure that you can still see them in the future.
