Flores. The name of an island we haven’t heard before our three months trip through Indonesia.

In the following article, you will find out our highlights on Flores Indonesia and why Flores is worth visiting not just once. Unknown Flores, here we come!
Maya ruins surrounded by turquoise water, incredible Tacos with avocado & limes and for us the most beautiful languages in the world: ¡Hola México!
