Beautiful garden villas with main bedroom & bathroom on the ground foloor. 2 more single beds on a mezzanine - so good for familes. Swimming pool, beach right there. Very attentive and helpful staff and a good restaurant/bar.

So now I'm ready for a change of location for a few days. Going to Amed for diving and chilling on the beach.
Sola Luna is a nice place to stay very clean and the owner Gede is really friendly and helpful. The first thing I discovered is that I needed a motorbike to get around - the distances are just too far to walk or bicycle.

We were walking in and out of the steam, there was hardened lava to one side of us and a never ending hole to the other. But our guide was excellent and we always felt safe, he does the whole ...
... headed to the Liberty shipwreck, which was another phenomenal dive site with amazing corals and fish. It's just mind blowing to me how so many types of corals of different colors, shapes, textures and sizes are born and grown on a ship that was sunk 70 years ago. I have no idea how they even come about. So fascinating. Roman has become a good friend. Last night, he took me to a local Indonesian restaurant with a live band and we drank ...
