I am leaving (finally!) for Bali next week in what will be my longest dive trip with 43 dives in all planned. First stop Tulamben, then Nusa Penida and finally a 10-day liveaboard trip on Mermaid I to Komodo National Park and surroundings. Cannot wait! I had to twice cancel this itinerary after booking before. Once in 2009 because I was changing jobs at the time and could not get away and then again in 2011 because of other reasons. I hope the trip this time will make the wait worthwhile. I am flying on KLM from Bristol to Amsterdam and connecting to the overnight flight direct to Bali. No hassle of going through Jakarta.
