Roughly 2 days before our arrival in Indonesia we decided to go the the Mentawai Islands. The Mentawais are a group of islands off the west coast of Sumatra. When Willie explained that we would need to take a 2 hour flight from Bali to Jakarta, a 2 hour flight from Jakarta to Padang, a 2 1/2 hour van ride to the ferry landing, a 12 hour overnight ferry, and a 2 hour motor boat ride to get there, we all agreed, “let’s go!”.
