Raja Ampat! I fell in love at first sight with these lost islands, deep in Indonesia. I was there. in March. I went back in July. It was the same marvel.
I returned on Kri IslandI had loved so much three months earlier. It takes about two hours by boat to reach the island from Sorong.
Coming back to this place is a happiness beyond words. When I finally see Kri's blue-green triangle on the horizon, my heart beats faster. The place made such an impression on me when I first came here...
How I love the islands at the end of the world! How beautiful this place is! I'd almost shed a little tear, I'm so moved when I arrive.
I went back to the incredible jetty of Sorido Bay Resort, which leads you to the blue hole in the middle of the coral.
I found "my" white sandy beach, fringed with greenery.
The neighboring islet, with its little house on stilts, in wood and braided palms, planted on the sandbar that pops up and disappears at the mercy of the tides, is still there, just in front.
And then I found some friends. Jimmy and Julia, current managers of the resort, greet me with big smiles. Nathan, my favorite dive guide, is there, too, and will accompany me underwater throughout my stay.
Ah! Raja Ampat! A truly exceptional destination. Unspoiled, isolated. Not easy to get there, not easy to leave. I'll tell you all about it in a future post...
