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 ...
... left Gili Air for Lombok on a public boat. Wading through the shallows with backpacks on backs and hauling the extra weight onto the boat was a challenge, as was getting off, where we were hounded by touts wanting our money. Welcome to Bangsal! We were expecting this! We finally reached our shuttle bus to Senggigi where the first stop was the hospital to sort out my totally blocked right ear!! More of that to follow...if anyone is actually ...
Somehow managed to get in at 3am last night, so our 6:30am bus journey was one hell of a shock to the system. We thought it was 20mjns to the boat...it was an hour and half, but with an unexpected traffic jam, it took 4 hours!! Luckily, we weren't the only ones stuck, so the boat was waiting for our arrival. An hour and a half later, we were pulling up to Gili Trawangan, a beautiful white beach and Main Street ahead of us. ...
... to wearily clamber up the volcano at their own pace, inwardly encouraging themselves to keep going (that’s what I was doing anyway). Holding a stimulating conversation was well out of the question. The only people still talking were the porters, who remained jovial and chatty when they saw one of their friends from another group coming down the mountain from an earlier trek. Towards the end of the afternoon we eventually reached base camp for the ...
