Like all other trips, I have put together a series of videos documenting that very short week in the Banda islands, considering that the journey to get there for me (from Singapore) took early 2 days - the fast boat from Ambon to Banda Neira was about 7 hour long. Enjoy this back to nature trip!
What do you do when you have so many hours to kill?

I will be heading to Banda Neira again in Dec 2018. This time to really live and sketch the place. The idea is to be able to produce a sketchbook from this journey. So stay very tuned it to my Instagrams posts and Youtube Channel for updates. :)
