The Komodo Islands was the 4th stop on our Indonesia #TripofWonders tour, the first leg of my 1-month Indonesia adventure. This leg was definitely my favorite. Just the thought of meeting real-life dragons & venturing to the remote islands of the country already got me going. Little did I know, the Komodo Islands were well worth the visit even just for its breathtaking scenery.

To get there, we had to fly back to Bali from Lombok and take another flight to Labuan Bajo in Flores, the jump-off point to Komodo National Park. We spent two full days on amazing speedboat tours that took us around the islands and three nights enjoying the small-town yet cosmopolitan charm of Labuan Bajo.
