Throwback Tuesday: The Wonderful Land of Papua

I have only visited Papua, our Eastern-most island of Indonesia and I instantly fell in love.

I went to the wonderful land of Papua back in 2012.
It was for work, but we managed to see more of the city.
Our dearest friends in Papua took us to one of the highest spot in town and here's the view I enjoyed from the top.
Youtefa Bay looks beautiful indeed.

The brilliant blue sky is indeed amazing.
Including Sentani Lake, near the airport. 

Papua has a lot more to offer for sure.
As I mentioned earlier, I was there for work so I didn't really have much time to explore its amazing natural landscape.
But even with such a limited time, I was blessed to get the opportunity to see Youtefa Bay as well as Sentani Lake. 

It took quite a long flight to Jayapura, Papua.
I flew Garuda Indonesia  from Jakarta, had  a transit in Makassar, South Sulawesi, then another brief transit in Tembagapura, Timika, Papua, before landing safely at Sentani Airport, Jayapura.
It was only 8 hours overnight flight but we have to make two stops.
I promised myself to go back here again and dive!
Next destination will be Nabire and Raja Ampat, West Papua. 
So, Papua, wait for me :).
