Today is an exciting day as is the day to meet Holly for our Flores trip. Checking out of my little haven of a hostel after extending for 2 more nights,a guy called Chris from Hamburg is also going to the airport and offers to share the taxi to airport. It’s a small world as find out he is on same flight and planning to do same trip for Komodo dragons!
Catching up and seeing Holly is fab and end up having plenty of time to do that at the airport as we are delayed by 3 hours which we were told happens all the time! They do look after you food wise though and get a rice and pork meal before get on plane and food on the plane eveb if it’s not great lol.
Flying into Flores is so scenic and never knew there were so many islands. The colours of the water and beaches looks breathtaking and try to take a few pictures from the plane. Its just island after island which is very cool. Luckily the flight is quicker than expected and as we land its funny seeing the airport as its so modern and looks a little out of place to rest of island, but good to see they are investing in it to make it easier to get to which can notice from our Garuda plane due to it being such new aircraft.
