Wrong Way To Kathmandu - A Sidecar Misadventure - Part 2 - Indonesian Island Hopping

Wrong Way To Kathmandu - A Sidecar Misadventure - Part 2 - Indonesian Island Hopping




June 2012
----------

This is the second part of our trip. The beginning can be found here:

The synopsis is drinking, Bob Seger 'Kathmandu' song, free time, sidecar, and a highly theoretical route drawn on map with no regard for borders, roads, or laws.
We began in Jakarta and promptly began driving the opposite direction of our destination.

With the bike repaired and leaving Bali it feels like a new beginning. We're speeding West across the islands. Lombok, Sumbawa, Flores, Timor, Papua. We're going to see dragons, primitive tribes, multi-color volcanic lakes, and who knows what else. We're going to eat alot of rice and fish. We're excited!

I hope that we will be able to make up for the slow beginning and cover ground at a faster rate. We still need to reach Nepal before winter arrives and there is a LONG way to go.

As always:
I write poorly and mostly for my own lossy memory. Some thoughts may be unrefined, blunt, offensive, or repetitious.
I'm known to whine, whinge, bitch, and complain. I'm may also be opinionated and prone to stereotyping.

Encouragement, comments, and angry rants all welcome and appreciated.
