The Komodo Islands

The Komodo Islands didn’t disappoint. We stopped in a few stunning anchorages: great snorkelling, beautiful rugged landscape to admire and plenty of wildlife. We were joined by our friends on Impetuous Too, whom we had last seen in Fiji and now have a third crew member onboard: one-year old Ravi!

After a few days in the Komodos it was time to move on (change of season means we need to get our skates on). Unfortunately, we had to say goodbye to s/v Rampetamper, our sailing buddies since the Solomon Islands. Such is life… I’m sure we will meet again soon!

And what about those famous dragons? We looked and looked and looked … but unfortunately failed to spot one. They must have all been hiding. 🐉
