2013 Indonesian Region

From Sydney we went northwards, sailing the long haul up the Australian east coast and through the Great Barrier Reef, “ov’r the top” to Darwin and on into Indonesia.

We spent the majority of the season exploring “off-route” townships, and as a result visited places unfamiliar with tourism either by land or sea. We were privy to many traditional ceremonies and hosted by the most warm and welcoming Indonesians.

The season ended in Singapore, where we laid up the boat ashore and flew back to NZ for birth of our daughter, Ayla.
