Raja Ampat ! I fell in love with these lost islands, deep in Indonesia. I was there in March. I went back in July. Same dazzling.
I returned on Kri Islandthat I had loved so much, three months earlier. It takes about two hours by boat, to reach the island, from Sorong.
To come back to these places is a happiness without name. When I finally see the blue-green triangle of Kri on the horizon, my heart beats faster. The place made such a strong 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 could almost shed a little tear, so much I am moved, while arriving.
I found the incredible pontoon of the Sorido Bay Resort, which leads you to the blue hole in the middle of the coral.
I found "my" white sand beach, fringed with greenery.
The neighboring islet, with its small house on stilts, made of wood and woven palms, planted on the sandbar that rises and falls with the tides, is still there, just across the street.
And then I found some friends. Jimmy and Julia, current managers of the resort, welcome me with big smiles. Nathan, my favorite diving guide, is there too, and will accompany me underwater during my stay.
Ah! Raja Ampat! A really exceptional destination. Still virgin, isolated. Not easy to go there, not easy to leave. I will tell you all about it in a next post...
