During our stay in Labuan Bajo and our sail trip, we saved all the info and we draw up top ten list on about what we preferred the most:

Padar Island, known for its superb view once climbed the main hill, here you will see three different sandy beaches; white, black and pink; find your ideal place and take a wonderful shot with all three of them at the same time, you will love it.

Pantai Merah, the pink beach close to Padar Island; one of the brightest waters I have ever seen, pure snorkeling heaven, and the sand color is just incredible.

Rinca Island, probably the best island, was to have a face to face in the wild with the Komodo dragons.

Flying foxes island at sunset; imagine chilling on the boat after a long day spent between hikes, snorkeling, dives and, once the sun goes down, starting to see in the shadows a huge amount of giant fruit bats flying from their island to another close one, the sky full of black dots, a show to enjoy a once in a lifetime.

Kelor Island is a small piece of land where you can mainly do two activities; hiking to the top of the hill where an exquisite 360° view awaits you or going for a snorkel in the crystal clear waters of its beaches. Here you will see plenty of colorful fishes, turtles and also some baby sharks.

Taka Makassar: in our opinion the most Instagrammable sight on this list (for the best result be sure to have a drone with you); it is composed of a tongue of pink sand in the middle of nowhere. You will need a small spare boat to hop on it because larger vessels can’t stop very near. Except for the pics you can shoot here, bring your snorkeling gears, they told us that going for a swim is extremely suggested.

Manta point near Taka Makassar; between the months of September, October and November it is mantas season, which means that you will spot these amazing creatures in big numbers and you can literally swim with them, capturing in shots and footage moments you will never forget.

Komodo Island is our second pick if looking for Dragons; an estimation reports 1’700 living on the island (be aware that from January 2020 the island will be closed, however other islands will remain open to the public).

Kanawa Island, the ideal place where to try a half & half picture, snorkeling, swimming or just chilling on the beach; transparent and calm waters giving the impression to be in a swimming pool and white sandy beach is waiting for you.

Turtle point: unfortunately due to a lack of time and a problem with our boat’s engine we had to skip this awaited activity. Even though we couldn’t see it in person, a bunch of people described it as an absolute must to see if doing a Komodo national park tour; so guys, what to say, don’t miss it if you are wondering how to choose which tour is the best for you don’t miss to check Komodo National Park: How to pick the right tour for you?

PETRA YOU ARE A REAL WONDER! 💫 • We just checked off Jordan from our bucket list and couldn’t be happier. Visiting Petra was one of our big dreams and we have to say that it truly left us speechless. The entire area is something unique and incredible. We spent lots of hours walking around and “wow” was the word of the day 🤩 • We feel so grateful to have the chance to travel the world and be able to visit such a large number of unforgettable places. While wandering around we learned a lot and became more conscious about how lucky we are! • Lucky to be healthy, to be in the position to choose what to do in our life, lucky to spend a lot of time together, to have a home 🏡… the list could be very long! • For what are you grateful today? 🙏🏻 • Travel tips 🧭: -Petra is located 3.30h away from Amman. It’s easily reachable by car and the way that will took you there will keep your eyes constantly open: the surroundings are just amazing! 🚗 -we rented a car at Queen Alia airport and paid 150 € for 5 days -the entrance fee for Petra is quite expensive. We suggest you to spend at least 2 days on site because there is a lot to see. We bought a JordanPass that allows you to access to a long number of point of interests around the country and save plenty of money. For a 3 day pass we paid almost 102 € per person 🎫 -PRO tip: if you plan to visit both Israel and Jordan like the two of us, with the Jordan pass you will be able to enter the country without paying any VISA fee at the border (it’s very important that you remember to have it printed with you) -for lots of you could be obvious but for taking good shots be sure to arrive on sight at opening time (6 AM), because after 1 hour Petra uses to become really really crowded! 📸
