‘It is great fun;you pull up in your boat and go shopping. “One watermelon and a dragon fruit, please,”says I, at a fruit shop, somewhere along the river.’Captain Su.
Sometimes is a good idea to take a break from cruising and get off the boat for a while. Go inland and explore a different environment. One with trees, rivers, lakes and people. Get away from the sun, wind and the constant motion of the boat. Indonesia has real potential here. The most obvious shore trip that comes to mind is a visit to Komodo Island to see real live dragons.
