Best of Indonesia - Flores & Komodo
There is so much more to Indonesia than just the island of Bali. Let’s travel beyond the shores of the Island of the Gods and head to more uncharted territory. On this trip you will experience some of the most dazzling nature and fascinating culture that this island nation has to offer. Together, we’ll watch the sunrise atop of a volcano overlooking three turquoise crater lakes, learn about the culture of the Ngada people, marvel at rice fields, visit Komodo Island National Park, bask in the sun on Pink Beach – and so much more. This is truly island hopping at its finest.

Hi! My name is Hannah, I’m the host of the podcast, Women & the Wilderness. I’m a yoga teacher, traveler, conscious creator, lover of adventure, photographer, and woman in the wilderness. I travel to discover and share the most beautiful locations and off-the-beaten-path places to inspire others to expand their horizons through the wilderness, near or far.
I didn’t start traveling until 2016 – when I won an Instagram contest to travel across the world with a complete stranger. Through that experience, I not only discovered my love for travel but my love for making lifelong friendships with like-minded people that I otherwise would have never met, in a place I might never have visited. So, for me this opportunity is special. I want to inspire and encourage others to travel and provide a space to experience the world by hosting group trips. I can’t wait to make lifelong connections and share new experiences with you!
