Tombariri, Minahasa Regency, North Sulawesi, Indonesia
If you go diving in the Lembeh Strait, off north Sulawesi don’t miss the courtship dancing of the tiny Mandarin Fish. They come creeping cautiously from the coral rubble in quiet bays at sunset, wide-eyed and wanton, swishing their little tails...

Pulau Masalembu Besar, Ambulung, Sukajeruk, Masalembu, Sumenep, Jawa Timur, Indonesia
The 10-day cruise aboard the Orion II was billed as "Faces in Forest," and much of the focus was on orangutans and monkeys. But every time we stopped into a rarely visited village, such as the one Pulau Maselembo, an island in the Java Sea off the...
Lake Maninjau, Tanjung Raya, Agam Regency, West Sumatra, Indonesia
This is what I think of when travel comes to mind. I think untrammeled territory, wide open country, bits and pieces of the world I've never seen before, people doing things I didn't know they still do or ever did, and a big, booming landscape....

Wonokitri, Ledok Sari, Tosari, Pasuruan, Jawa Timur, Indonesia
The trip took a plane, a bicycle, a train, a minivan, a jeep and a horse! Ok, so it didn't take a rocket but might as well. And waiting for the sunrise hopeful that the clouds would lift and reveal this majestic scenery is probably as close as...
Samosir Regency, North Sumatra, Indonesia
