The Togean Islands are a group of Islands in Sulawesi. Being quite remote and hard to reach they haven't become that touristy and quite often you wind up by your self here. The whole place has a kind of deserted island feel about it. We stayed for 5 days at a beach with some very simplistic accommodation and spent our time fishing (caught a shark!) wood carving, fire making, drawing, sunbathing and eating the same meal for breakfast lunch and dinner, fish and rice! After this we decided to go on a boat trip around the Islands. The boat we found though was more like a fishing boat than anything else, no toilet and not a lot of space! Despite Katie's hesitation we set sail and had a really good 3 days. On our boat we had a captain and cook for £14 each per day all food included! The captain had build the boat and cook was his best friend so it felt quite personel. On our trip we saw the sea gypsies, a type of people that live nomadic lives almost totally dependent on the sea, visited many and probably the best reefs we've seem since being in Indonesia, saw dolphins, snorkelled and ate a lot of fresh caught fish including a massive cuttlefish fish we bought off the sea gypsies. In the evenings we'd go to deserted islands with abandoned resorts on them and take refuge in our hammocks under the old woodern buildings, very eery! One night we were joined by local fishermen who had seen a storm approaching and decided not to fish through the night. It seemed these were the only people who used these buildings now. The boat trip was great and felt quite special as it wasn't some thing tourists were normally exposed to. Ours was only the second our captain had ever done.
