So here we are onto the next section of our journey, on the beautiful island of Bali. Before we move on to Bali let's talk about Java. The scenery in Java is absolutely outstanding and Java has definitely been a highlight of our trip so far. From the incredible lunar landscapes of Bromo and Ijen, to the enchanting temples of Borodobur, and the endless green paddy fields with tall swaying palm trees….absolutely spectacular. We enjoyed the chilled out feel of Yogyakarta, with funky cafes, live bands and excellent food. However, we won’t miss the constant battle and effort when it comes to transport
Currently we are enjoying the relaxed little resort of Lovina on the northern coast of Bali. We are staying in a lovely little hotel with our own balcony and we have views over the palm trees to the sea. We have a huge bedroom, a huge wet room style bathroom, hot water and a fan….all for approximately £7.50 per night including breakfast. Not bad huh? The beach area is nothing special. It has grey / black volcanic sand, but it’s wide with plenty of shade and pleasant enough. The water however, was fine yesterday, but today it has a film of yellow-brown scum on it….very unpleasant, hence we haven’t been in the water
Tomorrow we are heading south through the mountains to the town of Ubud where we will be staying for Kevin’s birthday on the 11th…but ssshhhh, don’t tell anyone, you know Kevin doesn’t like a fuss!!
PS Sorry about all the posing sunset photos but we started using our flash that we've been lugging around for 3 months and needed some practice! ;-P
