Giant lizards, giant slobbering lizards! That’s what I wanted to see.
We were living in Thailand for awhile on our around the world trip on a small pension. It turns out Asia has a number of budget airlines, each competing for passengers, so they offer incredibly cheap flights. We booked a flight from Bangkok to Bali, planning on island jumping to the Island of Flores, the one with the tours to Komodo. After several adventures and one misadventure when my husband fell off of a boat and broke his arm, we made it to Flores.
