EP4: The Swiss adventurer Xavier Rosset continues his journey into Eastern Asia, starting with the beautiful rice fields and tropical forests of Bali. From there he flies over the islands of Indonesia to encounter the famous Komodo dragons. After a stop on the island of Alor, and its natural hot springs, he flies to Timor Leste. One of the great challenges of his expedition is then to cross over the ocean, without running out of fuel, to reach Australia, where he will encounter harsh conditions, but also share some of the beauties of this continent.

A never seen before journey around the globe onboard a tiny ultralight. Xavier Rosset, a Swiss adventurer, invites us to embark on a trip in search of enlightening encounters in Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia. His goal is to discover our planet with an open spirit, keep our childhood excitement of the discovery and teach us to embrace whatever life brings our way. Fly the World helps us to stay amazed by the beauty of our planet and the perseverance of those who tend to make it a better place to live.
