Welcome to Kelor Island. The hill looks small from afar, right?! Haha! (Flores – Indonesia)

Kelor Island was our next destination after Bidadari Island during our recent Komodo LOB trip.

The LOB (Live on board / live aboard) trip is basically a hopping islands trip, but rather than going back to the home base, we spend the night on a boat, so we don’t waste time to go back, and can reach islands farther from the main island.

From a distance, it’s just like another small island with one hill, where I could see a path leading to the top of the hill. So I know that one of the activities that I could do on this island was to walk up to the hill.

The hill looks not that big from afar … well yes, everything looks smaller from afar but when I stood at the foot of the hill … hmmm … Then I realized that the path is ascending at 45 degrees or even more.

Okay … Now the hill looks taller than before @.@ … Haha! – at Kelor Island (Flores – Indonesia)

Well … We tried to walk up the hill, then at the middle of the hill, we then realized (again) that the path is more like a dry soil and it was getting slippery – because of the ‘sandy’ surface, at some points.

I was only wearing mountain sandals, and although it has a strap at the back side, it is still sandals, and I think the grips of the soles were not that firm compares if I used climbing shoes.

Oh well, we then decided to just stop there and sit, and just enjoy the view from the middle of the hill *sad face*

The view from (the middle) of the hill of Kelor Island. Looks wonderful, right?! (Flores – Indonesia)

Not long after that, we just walked to the bottom and walked to the beach at the left side of us.

Wow, the water was just that clear!!

And then I was wondering, is it possible to just walk circle of the island – as I did not try it before?

Hmm … Would love to walk around the Kelor Island next time (Flores – Indonesia)

I would love to walk around the island next time …

And perhaps – next time too – I will wear proper climbing shoes and climb that hill to the top! Hahaha …

It was another short visit to Kelor Island of Flores on our first day of Komodo LOB trip.

It was a good warming up for the next day … The captain asked us before whether we exercised regularly or like to climb mountains, etc … We just answered it with a ‘No.’ Lol …

We were wondering why he asked that question.

He then said that … Well, the second day we would climb another hills …

Oh dear …

Lolsss …

Mixed Up Already

The things that I love are movies, music, and travel. I have an extended family in the movies world, called MoviegoersID, and we love to hang out and watch the movie together. How about music? Well, do you know The Corrs? Yep, they are a very talented family/musician that I deeply love since high school! If you love them, then we might get a long well ;-) . My love to music then grow to Sugarland, Christina Aguilera, The Script, and of course the one and only Anggun. Travel is the love that grows in me very late. At around 2011, I fell in love with travelling, and I tried my best to travel each month since that time. You can contact me at .
