Backstory:
We began (again) from LAX, California, USA November 2, 2018. We were gone for another full-time year of travel, prior, but did not have an official travel blog, yet. Now, we are building a new Travel Website to prevent any loss of our travel blogging. We will report when we are up and running, but one glitch for cell phone viewing is the hold Everything up 🙄 Until that time, reluctantly, on Facebook, there is Daryl’s and my pages:
Bunny Chronicles
World Travel
In addition, we have photos available for viewing, which go way far back in our world travel on my photo websites:

I have visited 72 countries thus far, and Daryl around 50. We have many more country visit adventures, ahead!

Bangkok, Thailand.. stayed only two nights. We had to empty a storage unit, then we got massages and ate great food! Daryl and I met in Bangkok, so it will always be special! ❤️
Bali, Indonesia 🇮🇩 superseded any expectation I had of the place. We stayed in Ubud, and had so much fun, ate good food, rafted, trekked the terraced rice farm, visited a coffee plantation, and the Volcanic mountain, a waterfall, temples, and the Sacred Monkey Forest.
Next, we flew to Labuan Bajo and spent a week exploring Komodo National Park. We hiked to find the Komodo Dragons, boated, snorkeled, went Scuba Diving and visited several islands… great views!
We had a lovely view from our hotel on Labuan Bajo…We also did a three-tank dive in the beautiful waters of Flores… such a beautiful place!
Singapore did not go as planned, but it went as it should have. I was in great need of replacing my old computer, so our time was spent at Apple, and I came away a happy girl! The weather did not allow for any of our planned sightseeing. It stormed, right up till the morning we boarded the plane… oh well. We honestly were not wowed by Singapore. We have visited many large Asian cities we found more interesting, and far more affordable; in our humble opinion, of course.

“Meanwhile, In Singapore 🇸🇬”

We left Labuan Bajo, to fly back to Bali, and the hour flight was quite beautiful! Back in Bali, we collected stowed luggage, then made our flight to Singapore.

We only had a few days planned for sightseeing, but we got rained out, big time! It did not just rain a little, but really stormed! No boating to see the night skyline, no sightseeing, no Botanical Gardens, but hey, we got our hotel right near Orchard Mall, Apple Store and got me set up with a shiny new Mac Pro computer.. Just in time, too, since my old computer died! Now, I am all Apple. I just need to figure out how to use the MacPro! Been a bit frustrating, since I gave no time to take a class, but it will come. We also shopped for a new travel bag for me, as my fanny pack was worn out, so good to go, now.

We have been without creature comforts, good WiFi and time to enjoy these things for over a month! It has been nice to play catch-up, rest a bit, and get ready for another busy Safari tour coming up! We leave Singapore tomorrow, and it will be three planes with layovers, going from Asia to Africa!

Amazing Safari starts on Monday!

“Indonesia 🇮🇩 ~And That’s a Wrap!”

We have had an amazing time on Labuan Bajo Island; Komodo Dragons, beautiful scenery, and superb water for diving!

We are bit short on sleep, with that 4AM morning call to prayer 🙄, so for this alone, we must get underway, again! In Singapore 🇸🇬, we hope to avoid the wake up call, and get more sleep. Here is what I researched, and we think Labuan Bajo, should take a page from Singapore’s playbook.

“There are 75 mosques in Singapore. The speakers for broadcasting the Islamic call to prayer was turned inwards to broadcast towards the interior of the mosques as part of a noise abatement campaign in 1974.”

We have been so challenged in the “electronics” department in the last few months! Seems like everything wore out at once! Daryl and I both have operating phones again, thankfully, and the big guy got a replacement iPad from Apple, recently as well, when the touch screen quit working. Then, while in Sri Lanka, my Surface Pro decided to not boot up again! I’m lost without my computer. First thing in Singapore, will get to the Apple store, there…. I’m going all Apple, now, with a new computer… then we need to find a “geek” in Singapore who can get my Microsoft computer to open, or at least transfer unseen photos from our Leopard Safari in Sri Lanka! I sure hope I haven’t lost those photos!

In the meantime, for our last day, here on the island; in the pouring rain, we made a dash for the massage place and hit up one more; two-hours of pleasure, while it stormed, and the electricity went out, then, after the storm, we topped off our evening with a repeat of the Mediterranean Restaurant we found, yesterday.

Earlier in the morning, I spent hours, finalizing our Egypt 🇪🇬 visit. We are so excited about returning to Egypt, one more time, as there is much left to see! We will spend seven glorious days on a Nile River Cruise, to explore Luxor and Aswan. Then, for Valentines Day, my love ❤️and I hope to Scuba Dive in the Red Sea. One of the most beautiful dive sites in the world!

From there, we finally make it to Turkey 🇹🇷; been trying to get there for years! In this case, I need to get a new passport, like Daryl had to in India 🇮🇳 (expiration is seven years away, but we both run out of pages way fast)!~ imagine that! So, we will need about two or three weeks in Turkey for the Embassy in Istanbul to send my application to the USA, and mail a new passport back to Embassy in Turkey.

Goodnight from the lovely Islands of Indonesia 🇮🇩
