Day 7 -
A adventurous and nervy night at sea in a rocking boat continued to 4.00 am.. Finally took a small "taxi boat"(that's what they call ferry to the dock from our boat) and reached land and it was awesome to be on firm ground once again.. We started a hike to the summit from where we could watch the famous view of Padar island as we had braved a terrible night at sea just for this view.. The speciality of this island is that after hiking for an hour we get a view of three beaches and all have different sand colors..black, white and pink..yes pink sand..looks unreal❤️..
The sight is a treat to watch..
2nd Spot - Next we sailed to Pink beach at Komodo island for our very first snorkelling experience.. And lo behold.. It was totally unreal.. We saw some beautiful corals and fishes.. We had never seen a sight like that under water and we had carried a SJCAM and got some of it on footage and that is going into the collection for years to come.
3rd Spot - Next we sailed to Kanawa island.. also a snorkelling spot.. We had seen something unreal at Pink beach but the best yet to come and what we saw was so serene and meditative.. we saw some beautiful corals and star fishes.. the colors on the fish were out of the world..
Finally we ended our day at Labuan Bajo port where we had started the sailing and checked in our hotel for the night at 8 pm..
PS - Indians are celebrities in rest of Indonesia (other than Bali).. people here don't understand Hindi but they love Bollywood and Shah Rukh Khan.. My parents named me Kajol.. Indonesians loved it the most (Kuch Kuch Hota Hai Anjali :P).. We were the only Indians in these parts of Indonesia.. Indians usually frequent only Bali in Indonesia.. I am glad we spent more time understanding that Indonesia is a lot more than Bali.
