This was my second trip to Wakatobi, first July 2011 with 2 girl friends then back in Jan 2012 with another friend. Both times I toured around Bali before the stay at the resort, visiting temples and my good friend Amy who lives in Sanur.
The flight from Bali to the resort was 2.5 hours long and I saw beautiful sights on the way. On board, I was served a snack and drinks, it was very good. Once I touched down a van was waiting for me to take me to the dock to board a boat, about 5 min drive. The boat ride was 15 min long and then I was at my vacation destination, Wakatobi!
A man carried my luggage to my hut and I was amazed how beautiful it was, wood walls and flowing drapes around the bed. I did not have any problems with bugs of any type the 17 days I was there. I had a small refrigerator and electric tea pot, I made coffee every day, I got up pretty early. I was in a garden hut, but also had a partial view of the ocean. Air-conditioning was as cool as I would like, and a ceiling fan was also available.
I like macro, but I also like wide angle, not a problem with the diving area. The reefs are the best I have seen anywhere, and that is why I will return time after time.

It happened one weekend while I was at the fairground. I was with my friend Sarah and
we were both really excited. The flashing lights and bright colours made everything
appear magical. We were having a great time and we had been on most of the rides when
Sarah pointed to the big wheel. The sign said “$1 for a two-minute ride”.
At first I wasn’t sure, but Sarah had been on it before. “It only takes two minutes,” she
said. “Come on- it’s a really thrilling ride!” A minute later we were in the air. It was like
flying! “This is a mazing!” I shouted happily to Sarah.
Then suddenly, there was a loud crash and everything stopped. I was really frightened!
Sarah held my hand tightly because she was worried, too. We looked down and saw
two mechanics. “Don’t worry,” they shouted. “It won’t take us long to fix it!” So we
waited…and waited! At first we were amused. Everyone was running around below us.
After a while though, it became scary up there.
Two hours later, the wheel finally started to move again. I was so happy. It had been
a long tiring evening. That two-minute ride had turned into a two-hour nightmare!
