1. Pulau Keraman, Malaysia

This photo was taken in Pulau Keraman, an island off Labuan in East Malaysia. We live on a sailboat and discovering the world by sea allows us to see untouched parts of many countries. This island was so beautiful with a streak of pristine white sand dividing the sea and the sky.


2. Kelingking Secret Point, Nusa Penida

Mesmerised by the power of this coastline in Nusa Penida, Indonesia. We spotted manta rays swimming in the crystal clear waters down below. Once in a lifetime trip there.


3. Pulau Sipika, Indonesia

Indonesia is full of wonders and this was a perfect example of an idyllic beach. Pulau Sipika was a tropical playground with low hanging coconut trees and turquoise waters.


4. Penida Heart, Nusa Penida

Wandered off the beaten track by accident as we got lost on the scooter and came upon this magnificent bay. Near the southeastern tip of Nusa Penida, we had this incredible place all to ourselves.


5. Tibumana Waterfall, Bali

Tibumana Waterfall in Bali where we were shocked to be all alone. The stream of water fell so gracefully we had the impression the entire place was designed by an artist. Instead, it’s the perfect art of nature.


6. Sungai Klias – Sabah, Malaysia

Sunset on Sungai Klias in Sabah, Malaysia. The whole river lit up with pastel perfection as we watched the sunset on the mangrove. We have made no modifications to this photo and yet it looks too stunning to be real!


7. Anak Krakatau, Indonesia

Our sailboat anchored in front of an active volcano was a sight we will never forget. Anak Krakatau, in Indonesia was one of the highlights of our journeys to date.


8. Atuh Beah, Nusa Penida

Incredible effects of sunlight on the water through low level clouds. The coastline looked prehistoric, having remained pristine all these years as it’s so inaccessible. Nusa Penida, Indonesia.


9. Tusan Beach – Sarawak, Malaysia

Tusan Beach in Miri, Sarawak, East Malaysia. We always caught the most beautiful sunsets on this beach, with the fading light illuminating the entire horizon and casting striking shapes on the rock formations on land.


10. Mulu National Park – Sarawak, Malaysia

Canopy Walk in Mulu National Park, Sarawak, East Malaysia. The mix of caves and untouched jungle in this park took our breath away. There is nothing like walking amidst century old trees and breathing in the lush fragrance of the Borneo jungle.
