Dispatch from Sven Lindblad in Indonesia

Sven’s recon mission to Borneo and Indonesia continues. He’s been able to email us a few images to share from this scouting expedition despite some Internet connectivity issues (one more thing our guests aboard National Geographic Orion won’t have to endure when we sail here).

“Walking amongst rice paddies in Bali is somehow one of the most peaceful of activities.”

“This is the culmination of a remarkable day leading up to several cremations in Bali.”

“Mutiara Laut. Forty-five meters of pure bliss. Our home for the next week to explore Komodo National Park and beyond.”

“Isabella’s first real dive off of Komodo Island. She’s a natural. Can’t wait to share some of the underwater photography. It’s been spectacular in so many ways.”

“One of the many manta rays at Manta Alley off of #Komodo Island. Incredible experience where we saw up to 6 at a time.”

“Children from the village of Kodi on the Island of Sumba. Scattered throughout the island are traditional villages mixed up with concrete modern structures. The beaches on Sumba are clearly some of the most beautiful in the world.”

“Looking out from Flores to surrounding islands.”

“Evening off of Flores Island. Lots of small boat traffic, many of which look like they could too over with a whisper of wind.”

“Last night on our boat. Now heading to great adventure in Borneo, so the cushy life is definitely behind us.”
