When We Were Stuck in Karimunjawa Islands

Thetraveljunkie.org – The Karimunjawa Islands are calm and still, there’s so much silence and beauty all around. Spending the days lying on the beach, eating out at local restaurants and sipping cocktails being on a romantic spot. Nothing against dipping your foot in a blue lagoon at sunset. We wanted to live an experience together we would never forget. We love to explore, discover new places and are very curious about what is out there.

Visits from here to there, sunrise to sunrise, we would wake up with chocolate pie, the morning sun beating down against. Coffee and a notebook to prepare for the next destination. It became an appealing routine, because you never knew what was going to happen next. It feels like everything will go just fine. Still, trade winds are against us. They all seem like yesterday. An undefined yesterday.

Life in an island made me realise that, even though I sailed long distances and traveled to faraway places, you can find remoteness close to home. To reconnect with Nature, to live amazing adventures, to experience the great outdoors, there is no need to take a plane and fly to the other corner of the globe. One can cross high mountain ranges, reach inhabited lands and step on pristine islands without going too far from the places they live.

Just a note, if you are thinking of coming please leave no trash behind. And take with only memories, photos and videos.


Happy Sustainable Travels!
