Re: Dream come through

Thanx all, looking forward to it and yes also a bit scared for the dangers... But we have good guidance, so let's hope we see plenty of reptiles and other animals and stay safe.

All this traveling and herping is brand new to me, so a bit nervous for the things to do in advance of the yourney itself...

Re: Dream come through

Forgot all about this post till now...

So we're back alive and with all limbs still attached We had an awesome time in Bali, Flores, Rinca and Komodo Island. There are a lot of pictures, but the best were not taken by me... So i'm still waiting on this to be sent to me. But i did manage to shoot some nice ones and also got a couple good ones from the others allready.

More will be added later on, but here are some of my most proud moments :

Me and the world famous Komodo dragon only 1 big meter away from each other


Me and a self-caught reticulated python


Me and another reptilian legend, the King Cobra

Awesome pics. Can't wait to see more. I don't think I could do it though. I get nervous when Hubby finds a copperhead. lol
