I leave my hostel at 06-15 to go to the airport. I am flying to Flores. The 15th I will go on a liveaboard to do more dives and visit the island Rinca to see the Komodo dragons. I went after landing to the dive company and they arranged a shitty room for me so I stayed there for one night and promised my self to get a better place after the diving. But the view was nice. A good meal and early to bed with my book.

To day one of my dreams is going to start I always heard that diving at the Komodo islands is very special. I have to at 8.45 at DiveKomodo so first I bring one backpack and a little later the photo bag. This is because it is humid and hot. All the other divers are there.We leaave for the bboat and get our rooms and sail to the first diving spot. Caled Sabay Kecil and it starts really nice.. My 153th dive.We see beautiful corals and heaps of fish. We are with six divers and seven crew members. The crew members go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. They help you in and out of your gear and fill the bottles so for the next dive everything is ready to go.. After every dive there is food or a bite. Coffee available all day so is water. For the evenings I brought some beers. And also some coca colas to raise the sugar levels And we livedour lives for four nights and five days on the boat. Evey day four dives starting at 07.00 next dive 10.30 than at 14.00 and the last dive around 17.00 hours. Life is good and treating me well.

Getting up at 06.00 to have a coffee and enjoy the sun rise. Ok behind one of the island but very relaxing. At 6.50 geaar up and dive at 07.00. We started at Siaba Kecil with a drift dive So we where swept over the corals with great speed. What a great feeling that was and ending up at a non current part behind the island to view around
