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.

... the new light of the day warm me up again. Tea, toast and banana pancakes were served and the talk of the day’s trek began. It wasn’t soon after the briefing that the two day trekkers were happy to be going back down and the Peruvian who had raced up the mountain the day before to back out of the three days and go back with the others.

... beach it was time to prepare for dinner. We have chosen for the "starlight lawn" option tonight and the staff created such a beautiful setting. Dinner was delicious curries, followed by chocolate fondant or caramelised bananas. The fondants won the day, the bananas were not so good. The company was magnificent.
Another evening of music, dancing and singing. The boys took in a bit more of Le Tour De France, drifting off after their big ...
... find a dive shop where I can not only do my certification but also work! That would be perfect! I really enjoyed Gili Air and would return in a heartbeat!
Back to Bali with a boat that was 2 hours late!We arrived in Amed (east of Bali): we paid for a driver to come and pick us up but he was not there at first. There was another persistent taxi driver that kept on annoying us for a ride, he was quite pushy and rude. Finally our driver came, not very nice either ...
... Nay which was as fantastic as Achim said it would be, then we headed to Bel Air bar/restaurant where Achim sang with the band. It turned into a bit of an epic evening ending up getting to bed at 12:50, which was late considering what we had to do the next day.
We woke up feeling rough which was not good. Tackled more theory then 2-and-a-half hours in the pool practicing skills with Ed and our new buddies Ben and Ashleigh. Whilst I was training, Nay went off to Secret ...
