In October 2015, I did a trek on Mount Rinjani. Mount Rinjani or Gunung Rinjani is an active volcano in Indonesia on the island of Lombok. It rises to 3,726 metres (12,224 ft), making it the second highest volcano in Indonesia.
During the trek I ended up walking alongside lovely Mary-May most of the trek. I was slow because I was admiring and shooting the surreal landscape. She was slow because she was not feeling too great but still decided to do this anyway.
All the stuff like food and tents were carried by the porters. I wasn't very happy to see it but those guys are really strong and probably that is the only way they earn money. I even had a beer at the first base camp.
Starry Starry nights
Portraits hung in empty halls
Frameless heads on nameless walls
That watch the world and can't forget.
Like the stranger that you've met
The trek came to an end but we did go and chill at Gilli islands for a few days before saying Au Revoir.
It was one of those random decisions which turned into memories that would last for a very long time.
Below is a video I made of the random clips I shot and tried to voice it. Pardon my sad voice over.
Until the next story!
