The drive to Bangsol was so beautiful…we went through rice paddies, the capital Mataram, and even some rolling hills with monkeys on the side of the road. Travis' friend Anjung was so nice and the ride was pretty fast (about 2 hours from the very south tip to the north coast). We then got dropped off at Anjung’s friends business where they had our ticket to Gili Trawangan
We ended up going to a place that has cheap air-con rooms but with our luck, they were all taken. So we were offered a fan room for one night and then air-con for 3 nights. So we decided to deal with it for one night.
Then we seized the day and went swimming in the beautiful, dreamy, and clean beach of Gili T. We did a bit of snorkeling and playing with the Frisbee. There were a good amount of tourists on the beach but it was nice because all the hawkers had many people to go to.
We had dinner at this warung called Kiki Novi, which had the cheapest food yet (this is weird too because it’s a small island). Then we went into our sauna room (very hot room with a small fan) to try and get some sleep!
