    Default 2016 SE Asia - Komodo and Bali

    A year ago, I found out that my cousin was getting married in December 2016. I wanted to attend the wedding in Hong Kong, and at the same time use this excuse to travel in southeast Asia some more. My sister and I decided on Indonesia and Cambodia after looking at several options.

    We spent a week in Indonesia splitting the time between Komodo National Park and Bali. Komodo was definitely my favourite of the entire trip.

    This is the first part of our trip. I'm in the midst of sorting pictures for the second part of the trip.

    Here's the link to the series of blog posts starting with Day 1. I encourage you to visit the blog to read about the adventures and see additional photos. I've changed my blog layout a bit. So the Blog Archive is on the right side panel now. You can find the links to the rest of the days there.

    Let's start with some scenery and wildlife pictures first.

    Now onto the fishes...

    Komodo National Park is surrounded by the most biodiverse marine ecosystem on Earth. Needless to say, the fishing was fantastic! I fished an hour here and two hours there over 4 days in Komodo can caught 48 species!

    I was expecting the fishing to be great as well in Bali, but it was very disappointing. After fishing a total of 7 hours, I only caught 3 new species and maybe 6 fish in total.

    Here are the Komodo new species...
