I loved my time in Flores, Indonesia and I regret not spending more time on this island. This post is an island hopping guide to see a pink beach, komodo dragons, and more in Komodo National Park (Flores, Indonesia).
In 2018 and my tour group was lucky enough to be the only foreigners to attend the Nowruz Festival in Turkmenistan. This year was also the very first time that Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow, the President of Turkmenistan himself, would attend the festival. We were told that this was a big deal.
