Sailing Nandji Ep 100: after making the big decision to head to the faraway remote northern island of Wayag in Raja Ampat, we were greeted with the most stunning scenery we have ever witnessed.
The entrance into the lagoon is prehistoric and from there on, you only get more lost as you weave around the hundreds of conical islands. The strong winds blew but we managed to find so many secret little gems. Once the live aboard dive boat we saw on our entry left, we were the only people in this wonderland for days.
Our crew member Juzzy, is an amputee and his time spent on Nandji, he proved to us how your outlook on life reflects what you are able to do. Juzzy only received his new leg a couple of days before arriving to Nandji. He ticked off many firsts and one of them was a bush walk. We had all seen the postcard photos from the top of one of the hills in Wayag.
We head searching for that perfect postcard photo and find the track that takes us up the hill. The easy walk turned more into a rock climbing expedition and Juzzy with only one leg, was the first to the top of the hill. What a legend, it was great to give him such a stoked feeling!!
