Wow!!! Where do I start??
After a bit of a trip to Bali, it was first time to chill a bit and say hello to some friends at Gili Air which I was planning for a while already. Thanks to Sander, Joerie and Viola at Ocean 5.
A very nice place to relax and it reminded me a bit of Koh Tao but more quiet.
No bikes, just bicycle and horse and wagon…just amazing!!!!
Like Mark normally tells me normally after a 1 day holiday
Back to work!!
So the first ferry to my next adventure, my first time Lembongan!
Arrive at the island and off to Two Fish Divers.
Great welcome by HANNI who brought me to my room and I settle in a bit…I thought! Thanks Marie!
