Heading to Saumlaki Island

Greetings from the remote island of Saumlaki! Bordered by West Papua on the east, East Timor on the west and Australia on the south, Saumlaki is one rather big island amongst hundreds in the Tanimbar Islands, located on the most south-east corner of Indonesia archipelago. 1,5 hour flight using small airplane from Ambon, I can't say it's a pleasing flight. But all the bumps and all soon replaced by the beauty of this barely known place.

the only plane that fly to the island is this one

I'll write you soon and post some photos of this island in the next few days, since it's quite difficult to get an internet connection here. In the mean time, have a great time, everyone!

this tight!
