"We don't like people"September 19 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C
As you might have noticed, I'm writing everything in English. My phone/laptop is in Englsih, I read (mostly) in English and here we speak a lot of English. Hey, so why not write in English as well? ( sorry for those who prefer Dutch :p )
Yesterday we went to Seminyak, and it was my first day on the scooter. Boy, what kind of day on the scooter we had haha. Dreetje was navigating, and she navigated me to a small ( but pretty busy ) road with loads of giant holes ( not holes in concrete, no just big ass stones missing) / small ledges to fall of (+- 1m) / and narrow streets.
After a ride of 30 minutes, but which felt like hours, we arrived safely. I am not going to lie, I did a lot of panic sweating. We went to the beach and afterwards we just strolled around to take in all the new culture. Of course on the beach of Seminyak we found the famous beach swings you see in every Instragram picture. I repressed the child in myself and did not swing. Out of protest and cause I would feel like kind of an idiot on a swing. Chilled for a while, had some dinner and drove back to our villa during rush hour. It was a pretty intense first scooter day.
Since Canggu and Seminyak are really busy with constant traffic jams at some chokeholds, we decided to visit the more quieter places in the West.
We're not always too fond of lots of people in one place. Heck, we're not always fond of people in general. So the sight of empty beaches (except for some local fishermen) was very welcoming. On this beautiful black beach was a swing as well, one did like. Not a swing to take beautiful instragram pictures with, no just a crappy swing for the sake of swinging. On another beach we did some rock climbing and took some photos. Had some dinner at the same place as a couple of days ago since this was the closest known (Western like) toilet available in the area.Read more
