One more blog post, from our amazing Batiks and Bali trip with Quilt Seminars at Sea!

After 2 weeks of cruising around Indonesia, seeing amazing sights and buying lots of batiks, it is time to return to Singapore.

We had planned a fun evening tour with our group around Singapore, so we boarded a bus, to take us from our ship to the Marina.

Farewell to our fantastic group!  It was a blast to be with you!

Our trip is finished, time to fly home, filled with memories of all the sights we saw and all the new friends we made.  It was a fantastic trip.  A big thank you to all those who joined us for this wonderful journey and for Quilt Seminars at Sea and Troy Corporation/Riverwoods Collection for making it possible!

Ready for a few more photos from our quilting cruise, Batiks and Bali, with Quilt Seminars at Sea?

We had another tour planned with our group.  This time, it was a stop at Komodo Island. . . . the home of Komodo dragons!

 

Beautiful scenery, as we sailed up to the island

Yes, that is a Komodo Dragon, a stone one.  Let’s see a real one!

 

Our guide, ready to lead us into the jungle, to see the Komodo Dragons.  The other guide has a forked stick, just in case the dragons get too interested in us.  (Happily, the dragons were happy to just lay in the shade and didn’t pay us much attention.)

A few dragons, resting.

This one was a little interested in us!

After our tour, it is back to the ship and more beautiful scenery.

Our next tour with our group on our Batiks and Bali quilt cruise with Quilt Seminars at Sea was Bali!

We had a another very special tour planned with our group.  A visit to a Ikat fabric mill!  It was simply fantastic!
