There’s a black rim around the edge of the island, revealing the volcanic territory I’m about to fly into.
From my window seat in the sky, I can see a single road edging around the island and the occasional moving rectangle of a vehicle below.

“Open your mouth.”

It’s no secret a vacation in Indonesia has been on our bucket list for a while – and it’s not hard to understand, given one of the key activities we write about on Snorkels to Snow is about scuba diving.
What with Raja Ampat and the Komodo National Park, it’s our dream to spend some time traveling around this incredible South-East Asian nation.

All I can hear is the glassy crunch of my skis with each turn.
Exhilarating.
Peaceful.
Cliffs and hills cast shadows on the floodlit trails while perfect silhouettes of committed skiers and snowboarders dance on the snow.
