After two weeks North Sumatra (the always fascinating (food) city of Medan and the scenic and amazing Lake Toba), I really wanted to see the sea. That, and some relaxing time on a white sand beach with a cocktail in one hand and a sigaret in the other. Originaly I wanted to go to Bali, but then I met an American guy on Samosir Island in Lake Toba. He told me that instead of Bali I should go to this Sumatran island of Belitung. He said it was relativlety undiscovered and the beaches are more beautiful than Bali's.

He was right.

I stayed there for one week and spent most of my time on my scooter, driving around on this little island. Stopping on lonely beaches and searching for… whatever I would find. My days there all ended in the same way. Before going back to my cottage in the guesthouse, I visited the little Bugis people fishing village of Tanjung Binga. It's a small community where everyone knows each other and after two days, I also knew all of them (and they me).
