Alor and Raja Ampat: two distant archipelagos in Indonesia. I am back from it. I reconstructed in video my itinerary ... Total: 13 planes!

My journey in video

I think I have never taken so many planes on a trip. Here is what gives my trip in video, it will be more explicit ... Fasten your belts, we take off!

The summary of the complicated journey I made is as follows:

→ Paris - Dubai - Kuala Lumpur (Emirates)
→ Kuala Lumpur - Bali (Air Asia)
••• Night in Bali
→ Bali - Kupang (Garuda)
→ Kupang - Alor (Trans Nusa)
••• STAY AT ALOR
→ Alor - Kupang (Trans Nusa)
→ Kupang - Surabaya - Makassar (Lion Air)
••• Overnight in Makassar
→ Makassar - Sorong (Sriwijaya Air)
••• STAY IN RAJA AMPAT
→ Sorong - Makassar (Sriwijaya Air)
→ Malassar - Kuala Lumpur (Air Asia)
••• Night in Kuala Lumpur
→ Kuala Lumpur - Dubai - Paris (Emirates)

Thirteen aircraft and six airlines

This new Indonesian tour of July will have earned me, in all, thirteen takeoffs and thirteen landings. With six airlines: Emirates Airlines, Air Asia, Lion Air, Garuda Indonesia, Trans Nusa, Sriwijaya Air.

I am unable to count the dozens and dozens of hours of flight, transit and stopovers it represents. It's a lot, it's too much, surely.

But it was worth it. Even by dragging 30 kg of diving gear and photo gear ...

July 2012: Alor and Raja Ampat

Diving to Alor, return to Raja Ampat... I dreamed. I did it !

Alor is part of the small islands of Sunda, with Komodo and Flores (where I had already been in July 2011), and is close to Timor. Raja Ampat (which I discovered in March 2012) is an extension of Papua New Guinea.

Yes I know. I did not give any news of the whole month of July. In fact, I have not managed to blog in "live-live" ... A little lack of time (I spent most of my days diving), a bit because of the slow internet connections.

But I'm going to catch up, now that I'm back from vacation ...
