Bajawa was a destination on my Flores roadtrip, not just a place to spend a night. I’d spend several nights here, exploring the traditional villages and hot springs.

The best way to find these sites was on my own, at my own pace, on a motorbike. None of them were to difficult to find, and when I was confused, I just asked. There is always somebody around!

Even when I wasn’t lost and driving along confidently, folks passing would still ask where I was going, and try to help me. It’s pretty hard to get lost.

By driving my own bike, I was free to stop as much as I wanted, which was often. There was a lot of beautiful scenery.

These are some of my favorite photos I took while driving around Bajawa.

  1. Wow – the photo at the top of this page is amazing. We are planning on going there next year in July. Your pics and blog is inspirational. I am taking about 10 people with me so will be in cars but still, your blog is fantastic.
