To gorgeous Flores island

Denpasar, Indonesia

We woke up really early today and took a taxi to the airport, which wasn’t far, about 30mins away. It was a tiny airport so we checked in and made our way through departures really quickly.

We flew with Garuda Airlines to Bali which is a great airline to travel with and a nice change from low-budget airlines.

Once in Bali we checked straight in to fly with Merpati Airlines to Maumere in Flores noticing a nice 2-hour delay but at least it wasn’t our first flight and our second that was running late.

Merpati has a reputation of cancelling, delaying, and even crashing planes, which we discovered after booking it, so Chris for once wasn’t that excited about flying. In the airport, we made 2 new friends, Rod and Isa who were also going to Maumere so we decided to travel with them once we arrived.

But it was quite a surprisingly long journey there as the plane stopped off on the way to another island, Sumba, to drop and pick up more passengers, so we all had to get off and wait for a while, but a good excuse for a quick cigarette break!

Then, in Maumere airport, we took a taxi to 25kms away from the city to stay on a lovely beach at Sunset Cottages just in time to watch the sunset, which was gorgeous!

After this, we had a great evening with our new friends whilst Chris and Rod especially got drunk on local Arrack.

It got a bit messy!
