Where I stayed
Gili T Resort
So, I have now left the busy streets of Kuta behind me and set sail yesterday for sandy beaches and island life in Gili Trawangen. It was sad saying goodbye to Claire and Ben, I was so lucky to meet two great people on my dive tour.
Yesterday morning, very early, I got up to catch my boat for Gili T... It was a bit of an adventure as I had no tickets, paper work or anything so I half feared I wouldn't het here at all. Anyway, after driving for 2 hours we stopped at an office and I picked up my tickets! The boat took about an hour and a half and dropped us on a sandy shore in amongst all the sunbathers. My dive bag doesn't wheel too well in sand I discovered
So, to today... Well I went diving first thing... Nice, not a rich in life as some of the places in Bali, but really good value for money! Apparently all the centres here have a price lock so there's no need to hunt around for the best deal.
I then spent this afternoon on a bit of an adventure... I went to find my first Geocache! The map said it was in the ocean, but the compass didn't let me down. It was only 1km away so I figured it wouldn't take me long. Oh how wrong I could be. With no map and just following an arrow I found myself rummaging though the undergrowth, only wearing flip flops and totally on my own! What was great was the view from the top, it was a birds-eye look at the island. Anyway, after a bit of hunting I found it! Feeling very chuffed with myself I proudly wrote my name and took the travel bug
Anyway, I'm going to hit the bar tonight... On my own! Daunting to say the least, but it'd be good to get out properly.
PS - don't forget to leave me comments.... I love to read them!
