Life is like riding a bicycle…

So…we had another early wake up, this time on our way to Gili Trawangan. From Ubud. 

And the driver was late…it was a strange feeling, but I somehow knew it will all be ok.

He finally arrived.

And the moment after, we didn’t even put our bags in, he was selling us tickets that we will later need from Lombok back to Bali. A classic one. “There in Lombok everything much more expensive.” 

I needed time to think it through, so I asked him to just drive and we will later decide.

And we did. 

We made a classic mistake. 

We bought his classic trick. “Yes yes, an open ticket…” 

…one thing I learned from this is, to trust my instincts, they were saying wait, don’t buy yet, but I guess I didn’t listnen to them…

….well we learn from our mistakes, right? πŸ™‚

…and so we finally took off, the drive should supposedly last for about 2 hours, so I decided to meditate in between…I love it when I drift away, no matter where I am.

At nine there was our ferry to Gili Trawangan and in no time we landed. 

But first coffee?

No! I need beer, said Nives. After all it is lunch time. πŸ™‚ 

You are right. Let’s go. 

We found immediately our next place for breakfasts, coffees and stuff, it was called The Banyan tree.

This place has a very good atmosphere, food is delicious, as we definitely discovered very soon.






We just hanged there, probably for three hours, if not more. 

Our next plan? Find this Mango home stay that we booked. It wasn’t that easy, but the locals were supportive. 

I just love their positivity, they are always helping and they immediately open up also with other information…(except when they are selling, at that time I don’t like them that much, I prefer to buy when I feel like shopping)

And so there it was. Mango tree house. Well…to be honest, with this one, we didn’t really connected. πŸ™‚ 

But ok, after all we will be all days out, so what we need? A clean bed and a shower.


We than unpacked a bit, redressed and went to the beach…our first beach in few days and bonus is, we are on Gili island. 
Ordered a cocktail and just enjoyed it…we really are good in not doing a thing. And we talked and laughed, and suddenly there was almost night. Oh yes, here the day is shorter…



….you hungry? 

Is that even a question?

…we both laughed and on our way back we found one burger-something restaurant close to the beach….Sprayed ourselves to keep mosquitoes away and ordered each one big fat burger with fries. 

Yes. Good old classics.

Sprayed ourselves also in later on the room….and this time a good night sleep will be only with one loud ventilator on ceiling. 

Oh. And shower wasn’t working of course, those few drops of cold water showed up only if you were persistent. Majve to water a toothbrush? It will do for now.

I will shower tomorrow somewhere at the beach….I hope πŸ™‚

This night will be fun. πŸ™‚

….

Of course we woke up all messy and looked like someone punched us in the face. 

Almost at light speed we ran out, rented bicycles and just took of….

Breakfast….



And then to the right side of the island….

Oh my gosh….the views were breathtaking…

….yes. We did a photoshoot on those swings in the water and another milion other of them….


The ride was soooooo gooood, I just enjoyed myself so much…I loved the ride…I need to buy myself a bicycle when returning back to Ljubljana….


…..we went quite far….and finally found our spot.

Probably the empty Bintang bottles stopped us? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚


Oh, hello our sunbed for today…


We parked ourselves and…

Jup.

We started our day of doing nothing.

Supported by Bintang and some delicious food, a company of 2 goats, sea that disappeared and a good old storm that was gone almost as fast as it arrived.




But the view of the storm approaching was something spectacular…


Don’t you think?

…..on our way back after the rain, we decided to check that Slovenian restaurant named Diverisa…the ambient is nice and food was ok, but honestly nothing special…

After our dinner we returned back to the room….as I heard their horses with bells….felt like jingle bells, oh, sounds like Christmas 😁

Good night Gili Trawangan.

We leave you early….off to Lombok.
