A trip is not created in one day – it takes a lot of work. For an eclipse trip it is even more so because there might be no other initial reason to go to that particular place. For other trips one might want to see a particular landmark, but eclipses are temporary and rarely coincide with touristy places.
It is both a good and a bad thing. Off-the-beaten path is always very alluring, but meanwhile it can be a boring path as well. To make the path more charming, one should read a lot and browse a lot and talk to people a lot, and it might just happen that one of the resources will give inspiration.
For this trip and me it was not Tana Toraja’s burial traditions which other people can find captivating. For me it was the moment I read this post about Togian islands. The post is currently missing somewhere, but the same article is republished here: http://en.paperblog.com/the-most-unique-destination-in-indonesia-the-togean-islands-900795/. Remote islands with seldom electricity, very basic accommodation options, less tourists, but pristine nature and snorkeling – I’m coming! That is – we are coming. I really hope we will all enjoy this place after the long road trip.
After the inspiration is found, growing other things around it is much easier until it’s time to get up from planning, go and start enjoying!
