Komodo, Indonesia

The Komodo islands have always been a dream to visit for me, but for various reasons, such as work obligations and other kinds of disturbances, I have never been able to go. However, this year an opportunity opened up to take some time of in late September, and finally I got there. The pictures below are from a nine day trip on the MV Ambai, excellently arranged by The Underwater Tribe with their Luca Vaime as a great trip leader with a keen eye for where to put people in the water safely despite full moon currents. Komodo is a fantastic spot on Earth, with not only truly exceptional diving, but also volcanoes, harsh landscapes, incredible sunsets, and, iconic as iconic can be, the Komodo dragons. Thanks to Luca for excellent dive planning, the guides of Ambai for the guiding and my wife Pernilla for close buddying during the dives.

Maldives 2014

Pictures from my 2014 course on reef ecology in the Maldives with the Siren Fleet. The atolls were Ari, Malé, and Rashdoo.

Raja Ampat

Raja Ampat is probably one of the most pristine dive spots left in the world. I spent a wonderful ten days in the area, doing some of the best reef diving I ever done.

Borneo 2014

Field trip with biology students to Sabah, Borneo. The pictures were taken mainly in Danum Valley, while the monkeys are from Labuk bay. And, yes, the guy with the grey hair is Sir David Attenborough, making his umpteenth nature film.

Lembeh 2014

A short visit to NAD Lembeh in February. The great guides makes even a short stay worthwhile.
