Our Route:  We flew to the island of Bali (middle of the map above), where we spent 3 weeks before flying to the really out there island of Sumba.  We spent one week on Sumba, then took an overnight ferry to island of Flores, where we spent a few days before flying back to Bali.  Since Bali was our final stop before returning home, we really just slowed things down and chilled out for our final couple of weeks there.
