We are back in Timor now (May 2022). Follow us on Facebook
On Saturday 29th February 2020 we departed Dili airport for Melbourne. We were coming back in 3 weeks to start our 10th year of touring Timor-Leste (East Timor). In those 3 weeks flights stopped, travel restrictions started and we slowly adapted to a ‘new normal’.
Fast forward to 2022 – Flights from Dili to Darwin have now reopened, fully vaccinated travelers can travel quarantine free and travel insurance is now available. It’s time for us to return, catch up with old friends, discover and re-discover the country and answer the question “What’s it like to tour Timor in 2022”
