We enjoyed a beautiful 1 1/2 hour boat ride to Telunas; passing by many islands, villages and wooden fishing boats. Upon our arrival we were greeted with delicious icy orange drinks followed by a wonderful lunch. Ian was our guide and she did a great job! Our first day was spent just swimming and enjoying the beach. The following day we went to the island of Jang and visited a school and ate lunch with a local family. The visit to the island continues to make one appreciative of all we have been blessed with in the U.S. The poverty is just unimaginable. When we returned we did the jungle trek to the waterfall. It was around 10.2 kilometers (roundtrip) and hot but still an experience you don't want to miss. We actually saw monkeys swinging from the trees! The food was excellent and plenty of it! The banana crepes are the best I have ever had. Sleeping over the water, windows open, balcony door open and listening to the geekos was totally awesome. The staff was the best....very friendly and welcoming. As an American traveling in this part of the world, it was an adventure like no other and I wouldn't have missed it for the world. I'd love to return and being my grandchildren!
