Me, this Sunday, on the phone, in the middle of a jet-lag: "You know, maybe it's the most extraordinary trip I have done..." And the friend, to whom I am telling my Indonesian journey in Papua, bursts out laughing: "You said that last time!"
Oh, yeah? Here you go. Here you go.
It's true. I gave him the same speech when I returned from Flores and Komodolast July ...
Exaltation of the return
A phone call to my mother in the aftermath. I tell her, too: the incredible Papuain the depths of Indonesia, a world still wild, little known, almost virgin, and then the fabulous underwater world of the archipelago of Raja Ampat.
Oh, my, my... I just want to go back!
I'm tired, it's the end of the vacations, I just came back to Rennes, under a cold rain and a grey sky. But still exhilarated by the fresh memory of this Indonesian trip, I continue on my way: "Honestly, this is the most beautiful, most extraordinary trip I have..."
I pause, realizing that I am saying the exact same thing again. My mother is also gently laughing at me: "You say that every time!"
It's kind of funny. I don't do it on purpose. And that's a good sign. It means that I am far from being jaded. That each new trip is for me the most beautiful, the most extraordinary!
Let's hope it never stops...
The next one, soon!
I did not succeed, these last days, for lack of reliable internet connection, to continue the story of this fantastic Indonesian escapade, after this first article, posted from Papua. But now that I'm home, I'll be able to pick up the thread again... The rest is coming, very soon!
For the moment, I'm going to recover from jet lag and fatigue under the comforter. I've been on the road for 3 hours, flown for about 17 hours and taken the train for 2 hours... I'm feeling a bit sluggish now.
