At this point, most of us might get bored with the quarantine and isolation due to the global pandemic spread. With the coming of summer, we all dream of our yearly escape—probably somewhere tropical and blissfully isolated. Not that kind of frustrating mandatory isolation that we all forced to do. Out of all blissful destination in the world, Flores is one of the place you might want to go. The remote and yet increasingly famous land of the dragons; the hidden escapade where nature run freely in her wild beauty. The land that can only be explored by sailing in Komodo liveaboard phinisi, traversing the scenic archipelago, passing uninhibited islands and hidden beaches.
For now, we might be restricted to travel to these beautiful places. What we can do is entertaining ourselves with the imagery of having a joyous holiday in the middle of nowhere—like the Komodo, Flores. And one of beautiful thing on this secluded sailing trip happens early in the morning, when the day has just started.
A Quiet, Early Morning in Komodo Liveaboard
The moment you open your eyes from the comfort of the cabin, you see soft rays of sun light seeps from slit of wooden walls and the window. You heard faint sounds from the crews, getting busy preparing the day in Komodo liveaboard. Some are busy in the kitchen, others are cleaning decks or preparing sails. The morning has just begun. Get out from your cabin; the sky is clear, the air is fresh and the boat and all its surrounding is still basking from the golden light of the sun. Waking up in the middle of wilderness, you will feel the magic hanging in the air; when the ocean is still half sleepy, the boat is half empty, and the world is just waking up from a lumber sleep.
Tranquil Yoga Retreat on the Deck
One thing that could the Komodo’s serenity to the utmost is yoga retreat. Stretch your body on the liveaboard deck, bathing in the healthy vitamin D from the sun, and let the natural sounds of ocean waves guide your mind into focus and tranquility. A lot of Komodo liveaboard tours have yoga retreat on their package—and this a nice luxury to have.
