We had booked the deluxe room with ocean view, but once we arrived we were booked into a remote bungalow midst a garden that was in full construction (big sand hills). A builder was still busy in our bathroom with a shovel. After some discussions we managed to get a bungalow with ocean view. Don't expect a lot of comfort, but you do get spacious rooms! You definitely get better value for money elsewhere on the island.

... but still had an hour and a half before our transfer. They didnt mind at all though and the boss asked us to join him for a chat and some coffee. It was really interesting learning about his life and the differences between Lombok and England (obviously there's quite a few). They thought it was funny that Mike put milk in his coffee!
Our lift then arrived and Adu from Sejuk Cottages (our next port of call) greeted us. We said our goodbyes to the lovely people of Ressa ...
... life here. The food and service on Gili Air was average at best and our local hosts gave us a few local warungs (restaurants) to check out. This is quite a change from the rest of Indonesia where the service is exceptional and the food is quite good as well. On our first night I ordered chicken sate and Kristen ordered beef rendang. Kristen's curry was ok but a few pieces of chicken on my sate were raw - pink-raw like it hadn't even been put on the BBQ. This wasn't the first ...
... lost all confidence in getting up at 2am the next morning to climb to the mountain summit. Id been told by people who had already done the climb that the black volcano dirt absorbs all of your torch light and you cant see anything as you climb. Add to that you are climbing a ridge that is volcanic rock (pebble size) that keeps sliding down as you try and climb up. And we weren’t sure we would have a view at all given it had rained until we went to bed and we ...
... dragons take to the trees for the first 2-3 years to keep out of the way of larger Komodo dragons. We saw many deer and lots of buffalo poo, the ranger said there were also lots of wild pigs. All the animals are protected as it is a national park so there is always lots of food around for the Komodo dragons. We finished our trek without seeing anymore Komodo dragons and headed back to our boat. We had fish for lunch which was cooked by our 2 crew members, the fish was small and ...
... despite the cooler conditions.
The next morning we arose just after sunrise, breakfast prepared for us by the porters. The first challenge of the day’s trek was to climb hundreds of metres down a sheer track into the crater. This was a precipitous route, which took a good couple of hours of skidding, scrambling and holding onto wobbly, rusty iron rails. At the bottom we relaxed by the cool lake’s edge, washing our hands and feet of the dust. ...
