Posted by Ron Brewer on

Global pandemic has caused many limits of access including to travel. For now, we cannot just go for a spontaneous travel and such. However, many are curious about going on a hike right now. Because hiking has destination that is usually free from crowds. So how safe is it to go on a hike right now?

Safe hiking with following important ground rules

Medical doctors said that hiking now is not off-limit. In fact, it can help mental and physical well-being. Engaging in some outdoor-activities that are considered safe now can be done such as hiking to the local trails near your home. However, it is important to follow ground rules to hike safely for you and others:

It is more recommended to hike alone rather than in groups. Or, you can also hike with someone whom you have been quarantined with. It is to ensure that you not make any contact with the people who have not been exposed to you and vice versa. If you hike solo but encounter another hikers, then make sure to stay six feet apart at all times. Social distancing even in quiet place like hiking trails still have to be practised. Also, always let the people at home know about your hiking plan to ensure your safety. Give them estimation of when you return.

Do not touch any surface you find throughout the trails. Even if you think it is impossible for rocks and trees to be exposed to the coronavirus, it best to refrain yourself from touching them. They might have been touched by others. You can also bring hand-sanitizer to avoid any disease transmission during your hike. If you tend to touch surfaces unconsciously, wear gloves so you can wash them immediately once you are back at home.

Bring your own bottled-water so you can avoid purchasing ones during hiking. Also, bringing water for hiking is necessary regardless of the situation with the pandemic because you need to stay hydrated. It helps maintain your immunity and the overall health. You can also bring some snacks if you think it will take longer for you to finish the trails and return.

Choose the trails wisely. Avoid choosing trails that requires you to touch or grasps something to maneuver. If it is unavoidable for you touch various things when hiking, make sure to use your hand-sanitizer regularly especially before you eat or drink. Be more careful not to touch your face after touching or grasping any surfaces.

Avoid hiking if you are feeling under the weather regardless if the symptoms are ones of covid-19 or not or just regular ills like catching cold. It is best to stay at home when you feel you are experiencing symptoms of getting ill. Instead, get proper rest and eat nutritious foods to help speed up your recovery. If you are experiencing symptoms that looks like covid-19, it is best to contact medical practitioner as soon as possible to get you checked on. So you can protect yourself and others.

Cruise is a hired boat service that allows you to meet up with other people who share your passion for diving.  There are so many reasons to love cruise diving. Here’s just a few to consider before you book your next scuba trip!

Unique Dive Sites

For most divers, the number one reason to trip by Diving Cruise Indonesia is access to remote and unique dive sites. Some dive sites are impossible to reach without a cruise, because of the distance from the mainland. With a cruise, you’ll usually explore a different area, and it allows you to dive the finest sites throughout a one period.

Lots of diving on Diving Cruise Indonesia!

Diving Cruise Indonesia

This one is pretty obvious – you have the chance to dive a lot! There are usually up to 4 dives a day in the best dive sites the whole area has to offer, and you also can try night dives. If you love diving, you will undoubtedly get to your fill on this diving trip. Life is super easy on a diving cruise. Everything is done for your trip, so there’s almost nothing to worry about!

A no-stress vacation

Let’s face it; having a holiday can be stressful. From finding your accommodation, transport, to deciding where to eat, there’s a lot to worry about. Of course, add diving every day to your holiday plan, and you might go crazy thinking about diving equipment.

Diving Cruise Indonesia help to build confidence

Suppose you have a bit of dive experience. It is the best way for newer divers to build up experiences, skills and dive hours. Doing upwards of ten dives in a week will be fun and embed your skills. It will leave you feeling like a much more confident diver.

Unpack just once

The most benefit of this trip, you save your time! Rather than packing and unpacking every time of day as you move between onshore dive locations, on a cruise, you only have to do it once. Unpack just once is particularly good for divers travelling with their dive gear, as transporting wet equipment from one base to the next is tiring.

Feel alive

Living on the ocean dishes up some pretty incredible natural shows of its own and will never forget. Watch the spectacular sunset majestically over the horizon each evening, illuminating the sky a myriad of hues, enjoy the starry skies that shine when you are in the middle of the ocean, and far from land-based light pollution. Feeling the wind in your face and being rocked to sleep by gentle waves beneath starry skies will leave you feeling alive than ever.

With so many benefits, why not take a cruise excursion part of your next vacation?

Komodo Boat Trip to Live Life in the Present

Posted by Ron Brewer on

Going on a Komodo boat trip for divers out there is one thing. But for you regular folks out there who simply craves being able to disconnect from everything? “Disconnecting” is an oversaturated term at the moment – is the trip going to work at all? Completely disconnecting from your life can sometimes be a faraway dream. Sure you have your yearly vacation, probably to some exotic destinations for a week or two away from home. But even if you’re on a vacation, miles away from where you live, often times you fall back into the bad habit of needing to always connect; checking the news, your social media feed, urgent mails, and so on and so forth. You’re probably never going to be able to completely disconnect this way. Komodo boat trip 

Komodo boat trip 

Indonesia is a lovely country in which Bali is the center of the tourism scene. The island is still a magical place by a large stretch; but the magic could no longer be found in the midst of its most popular spots. What you’ll find in the current Bali is no longer the peace it once effortlessly provided; not if all you visit is the South of Bali like Kuta and the surrounding area. This is why many people decided to jump further east; Flores and the lesser Sumba islands. 

Komodo boat trip

Flores proved to be slice of paradise. Perhaps it’s the remoteness of the area, the fact that the place practically sleeps after dark, the complete lack of crowd, or the simplicity of the people’s lives here… or perhaps it’s a combination of everything and more. The best part is that having to be able to experience this slow-paced life in a boat. 

Disconnect in order to connect 

komodo sailing trip

When you’re so far in the sea, you probably won’t be able to get much reception. Which is all well; you’re not here to work or to cater to the world but yourself. So during your Komodo boat tour leave the phone alone. Don’t be tempted to check mails and whatnot.

Leave the phone securely in your room. Tip: bring a conventional camera so that there’s no temptation. You can dedicate a 30 minutes to a maximum of one hour to answering emails if you really can’t leave it. Disconnecting takes practice after all. Where else should you practice it if during Komoo boat tour Indonesia?

Living on a Komodo boat reminds you of what’s important 

komodo boat tour

Being able to disconnect from the endless streams of news and everything else the world tries to feed us is, we’ve realized, a privilege. But it shouldn’t be that way. Floating atop the phinisi in our Komodo boat trip we’re surrounded by the oceans, as our boat gently rocks—we realize that this is beyond a mere escape. Being able to disconnect has helped us reconnect with nature. Embrace the “inconveniences”. Humans didn’t evolve to be able to live with a device always connected with signals, nor have shops that readily cater to our nitpicky needs. In the boat, we learn to truly come back to what we truly need; and it’s surprisingly basic.

Local Research You Need To Conduct Before Travelling

Posted by Ron Brewer on

Holiday is finally coming. A trip you have planned since so long is about to begin. Every documents, including your visa and flight tickets, are settled. So is your luggage. If there is something else to do, it would definitely be preparing your mental dan body conditions. To get ready for any kind of situations you might encounter during the trip, why don’t you conduct some research from home? This will help you to make the most of your holiday. 

Current domestic weather

Traveling to a place far away from home is exciting and challenging at the same time. You will never know what is coming on your trip, especially when speaking about things that nature can do. Fortunately, technology has developed a lot and making information from the edge of the world so close to us. Eventually, checking the weather of your holiday destination can be done in just a few minutes from your smartphones. This will help you to pack the clothes you will exactly need. 

Essential surroundings and ways to get there 

During your awesome trip there will be some emergency situations you are not able to predict. For this kind of situation you need to know where to go and how to get there. Let’s assume the situation requires you to have money. So, knowing where the branch of your bank is located in the vacation destination will play an important role. Besides the bank, you should definitely know where the ATM spots are. In case of emergencies regarding to your health, why don’t you list the nearest hospitals and pharmacies around your hotel? 

In addition to that, you should also study the local transportation options and look for the local guidebooks. And of course, don’t forget to pin up your hotel in your phone maps. 

The way locals live

Not knowing the local culture when travelling abroad is awful. That is why your local research should include information about the language that the locals speak and the way the local people eat. Doing this not only will help you to adapt better and faster, but will also make a better travelling experience. Communicating with local people will also give you another benefits, such as going to local events and festivals that not many tourists know. 

Required local gears

Since we are all living in a digital world, the need for electronic devices is a crucial thing. However, travelling to another part of the earth may sometimes require different instruments as you usually use in your hometown. Think about the adaptor to charge your mobile phone and the sim card on it, for example. Also consider a LAN cable that you might need for an internet connection to your laptop, in case there will be no WiFi in your accommodation.

This isolated islets in eastern borderline of Indonesia spells a Lost World vibes, luring the inner wanderlust of anyone to explore the spellbinding wonderland. We are not even exaggerating.

And behind this marvellous panorama, lives the beasts, the Komodo Dragons, along with other fantastic animals in the harmony of the wild. Embarking on Komodo liveaboard would be your best choice to have a live encounter with all the beasts of Komodo. 

Komodo Liveaboard: A Journey of Fantastic Animals and Where to Find Them

Lord of Dragons: The Komodo Dragons

This is not The Game of Thrones, and it’s definitely not Eragon. In this land, dragons are real—and the last of them is living in the protected land of Komodo National Park. The Varanus Komodoensis, or Komodo Dragons, are gigantic monitor lizards who has live their life for more than 4 million years ago. They are basically prehistoric creatures! These dragons are descendant of the Megalania species, who lived in Australia since 40 millions years ago and just recently went extinct. Don’t take these dragons lightly. They are seriously fierce predators, preying large animals such as water buffalos and deers. These dragons left nothing—swallowing everything down to the last bones. Jurassic and terribly wild, the Komodo Dragons are definitely the main star of the park’s attraction. 

The Komodo lives in Komodo Island and Rinca, which can only be reached by Komodo Liveaboard or speedboat from the mainland Flores. Normally they love to stalk the shores or wandering around   open grassland. They love to sunbathe to help digesting their food! When it comes to the mating season, these dragons love to go deep into the forest to find their soulmate for the next two months. 

The Large Prey: Deers and Water Buffalos

Though they rule like kings, the magnificent Komodo Dragons are not the only resident of the national park. This UNESCO protected land also house deers, horses, water buffalos, Rinca rat, dozens species of birds, and the orange footed scrub fowl! Wait until you feel the almost-magical excitement while you happen to catch an eye contact with wild deers in roaming in their outdoor habitat.  

The Komodo Liveaboard Chaser: Dolphins!

The Komodo Liveaboard Chaser: Dolphins!

The Flores sea is one of the best water on the world. Being as the meeting point of two sea currents, these waters is incredibly rich in planktons which boost the growth of coral reefs and invites billions of marine animals to enjoy the prosperous surrounding. And yes, that included the dolphins. These curious and highly intelligent mammals love to tail passing Komodo liveaboard. You will notice the signs when everyones in the boat are shouting “Lumba Lumba!” Maybe the dolphins just love to say hi!

The Ever Graceful Manta Ray 

A trip to Komodo will never be complete before you meet the graceful Manta Ray. The other giants of Komodo National Park who lives under the sea. They love to be around in Manta Point, Manta’s favourite spot for feeding and cleaning. You could drop down just 10 meters from your liveaboard and find sandy bottoms and high visibility water. This is where Manta Rays frequently pass by. It’s a thrilling experience even for highly seasoned divers! 

See from Komodo Liveaboard: Sunset Fruit Bats!

It’s forbidden to dock on Bat Island (or the Pulau Kalong on local tongue). This mysterious island houses millions of huge fruits bats. Hanging on mangrove branches, deep under the shades of mangrove forest that form half of the island. Get ready in your Komodo liveaboard, which will stop just miles from the island, and wait for a spectacular show. Just as the sky turns into shades of orange-violet, thousands and thousands of fruit bats fly off from their home to Rinca and Flores, in search of dinner. Backdropped by gorgeous sunset sky, the sight of flying bats is gonna be a stunning show that seems like straight of the Nat Geo Wild channel.

A true Potterhead—who most likely have watched the movies more than twice each—would be able to recognise several locations being the backdrop of the movie.

Could your Harry Potter tour be complete without a visit to the classical Platform 9 3/4 of Kings Cross station? The gateway to Hogwarts express and magical community from our muggle world.

Komodo Boat Charter Sailing: Lower the Waste

Posted by Ron Brewer on

The Komodo National Park is vibrant with its raw wilderness, white and pink sandy beaches, auburn savannah, and of course, the prehistoric Komodo dragons. With such beauty, the Komodo is a true magnet to local and international tourists who come to enjoy the world-famous sailing trip around the luscious landscape. But just like any islands with tourism magnet, the KNP has to deal with great amount of waste, too. We all know that we produce more waste than we need, and this lifestyle could easily get loose on a holiday. Especially when you choose to sail with Komodo boat charter.

Komodo Boat Charter Sailing: Lower the Waste

You know, with all the pampering and luxurious comfort. If you are not careful, you can be another careless contributor to the waste pollution in Komodo. Such a great irony to our admiration to the rawness of Komodo’s nature in the first place.

If you love to indulge in Komodo’s perfect landscape and it’s rich marine life beneath, it’s time to practice green travelling on your sailing trip.

Buy Things with As Littlest Packaging As Possible

Oftentimes, being ‘stranded’ in the ocean drives us a little paranoia with what we want to bring onboard. Some of us tend to be over-prepared and end up buy things worth a month of supplies. Think about the packaging of every things you buy—the amount of package waste could really add up onboard. Be mindful and always try to minimise and minimise.

Do Not Arrange Party on Komodo Boat Charter Involving Balloons

One of the reasons why we book the whole Komodo boat charter is to launch a party. While it’s totally fun and acceptable, please avoid any use of balloons of all kinds. They could get easily snap because of the winds and the sun—and the plastic shreds go right to the ocean.

Don’t Buy Individually-Wrapped Snacks

Don’t Buy Individually-Wrapped Snacks

We like to think that individually-wrapped biscuits and candies are more practical to bring anywhere while in fact they are just a bulk of waste. If possible, make your own snacks or buy a bulk and store them in reusable containers.

Neither Buy or Use Travel Size Items—Buy Reusable Containers Instead

Luxury line of Komodo boat usually provides single use toiletries onboard. Don’t use it. By ignoring the complimentary toiletries, you are saving plastic toothbrushes, hair caps, and environmental-damaging soaps and shampoos. Also, buying brand new travel size toiletries is just adding more waste to the bin. Instead, opt for reusable travel-sized containers filled with free paraben, chlorine, SLS, triclosan, and other toxic chemicals ingredients.

Go Easy on Paper Towels

We love to get surrounded by convenience and using too much paper towel is one of those simple luxury. We use it to wipe our toilet businesses, clean our hands before and after meal, remove dirts on tables, or even wiping wet faces from the splashing salt water. Whereas, in many situations, a good old handkerchief could do the job. You couldn’t ask the Komodo boat charter to provide only biodegradable paper rolls, but you can choose to limit the personal usage.
