Thetraveljunkie.org – When in Komodo Island, We were walking around on the beach looking for komodo dragons. It was a life-changing experience.
Everything in Komodo National Park surprised me. I also learned about how these beautiful, gentle animals live.
That sense of authenticity makes you feel like a real travel junkie, discovering places and emotions for the first time.
It was amazing to just journey through the wilderness observing the animals in silence.
We followed a pride of komodo dragons and got to watch the pride stalk a komodo dragon, where it acted for hours until the komodo left.
We watched the whole encounter — I am still in complete awe.
I was intently peering through the camera lens when one komodo dragons stopped on the beach, turned his head and looked right through me. In a moment of sheer terror, I let out a screech and slid into the side of my ranger next to me.
Our ranger, just smiled and smiled!
Some moments are so unreal, pictures can’t do them justice, but when I walked into the Komodo Island, I was blown away.
Happy Sustainable Travels!
