Where I stayed
After my morning breakfast at Hidden Oasis, I packed up and headed down the road to Legian. Here I realised that one thing you do need to watch out for in Bali are the taxi drivers. Many of them don't have a clue where they’re going and you need to keep your whits about you if you don’t want a huge bill at the end of your journey (whether you’re on a meter or not).
After numerous attempts by the taxi driver to find the right place, I arrived in Legian and checked into my final hostel called The Island. It’s a lovely chic hostel down one of the gangways in Legian. They say you should save the best until last, and the Island fits the saying perfectly for me with regards to accommodation! This is without doubt the best place I’ve stayed during my time away
I got settled in quite quickly and met some others that moved in on the same day, Mark & Michel. Shortly after that, it was time to see what Legian had to offer.
All in all, Legian is a far more peaceful and chilled part of town when compared to the more hectic nature of Kuta
As for my day, it was another chilled out beach day after a lovely Nasi lunch nearby. I did have plans to do some extensive exploring when I got here, and Meg (Frontier) suggested I should travel onto Lombok to climb a volcano. But after such a busy last week in the cities, I have no regrets in taking it easy these past few days and I will go and do some exploration in the coming days. As the day came to an end, we had another great slow sunset over the beach. The sunsets in Bali are absolutely incredible, and no evening so far this week have disappointed. Another game of football broke out as the sun set, which I joined in and then had a relaxing time back at the hostel to round off a great day.
