The world around Bolilanga Island – Togian Islands

The Bolilanga Island – I would to recommend this island off the coast of Central Sulawesi for a vacation without hesitation.  However if you prefer to be in touch with somebody in the outside world – take with you a satellite phone.

Sunset over Mekong river in Luang Prabang.

I visit Luang Prabang many times. I come to this lovely town by plane, bus and boat. The river journey by boat is by far the greatest. Take your time and travel 2 days from Thai border to Luang Prabang by a local barge called in Laos the slow boat.


Sumbanese river near Indian Ocean.

I was one of the many witnesses of a funeral ceremony in one village in West Sumba. At noon I went to the river looking for a cool breeze. The boys from nearby villages had already bathed in the water.
