Done the lions and lemurs and now at last I am planning on Indonesia

My Congo trip has been cancelled, so in its place I decided for my 50th birthday I would head out to Indonesia where I planned to go 2 years ago but could not wrench myself away from Africa.
My initial intention was to visit Kalimantan and Komodo followed by a trip to the Maluku Islands, but with only 5 weeks to do this in and having now read a lot about the Malukus I have decided to head straight there. The lure of deserted white sand beaches, some of the best snorkling in the world, untouched rainforests and the possibility of not seeing another white person whilst there, was too much to resist. Only down side is that it is (very) rainy season. But if it all gets a bit too soggy, I know I can fly down to Bali or Flores and go and see those pesky dragons!
