We left our hearts in Sumba. There’s something special about this place that is so heartwarming. The outdoors are obviously outstanding, those raw and untouched landscapes really took us back in time. But the most interesting part was when we visited the Praijing ethnic village, where we got to meet and interact with the friendly native people! They are the friendliest bunch! It was so adorable to see how helpful they were towards us when we did a shoot there.
The beach house stay was a surprise gift prepared by Amelia for William whose birthday coincide with the trip. After a day of shooting in and around the eco resort, we had a dinner together by the beach as Will’s birthday celebration. It was just so wonderful to have spent a quality time with the family & good friends at a such a serene place. That was our most favourite part of the trip!
Amelia and William surely have enjoyed our stay and shoot in Sumba as well. We all keep telling each other how we miss that beautiful place. We craved the quiet and peaceful life we got to experience there. More importantly, those genuine smiles and kindness from the local people that we just cannot forget!
