    • Day 130


      March 11 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

      Quelques jours à Amed. ☀️

      Nous sommes partis avec un scoot de notre hôtel à Ubud, où nous avons laissé nos gros sac.
      2 heures de scooter pour y aller, la route était très jolie.
      Amed, c’est une sorte de station balnéaire au pied du mont Gunung (le plus haut de Bali).
      On n’y trouve pas de très belles plages mais par contre le snorkeling y est super (si on passe outre les déchets😵).
      On a vu pleins de poissons qu’on ne connaissait pas et c’était trop cool !
      Vous verrez quelques photos des poissons qui nous ont le plus marqué (elles ne sont pas de moi j’avais oublié ma caméra 😪).
      Nous sommes également partis avec nos masques voir une ancienne épave de bateau USS LIBERTY. On a pu voir le haut du bateau à 5 mètres de profondeur, le reste descend jusqu’à 30 mètres. 🛥️

      Aujourd’hui nous sommes allés rendre notre scoot à Ubud. Nous avons mangé dans un restaurant à la balinaise, assis sur le sol -> le Sun Sun Warung de son nom. Le restaurant se trouve dans un temple, c’était magnifique et délicieux !

      Ce soir, nous sommes arrivés à Nusa Penida. Je vous préviens, attendez-vous à des paysages de rêve très prochainement 🥰🙈

      No money no honey

      August 14, 2022 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

      This morning brings another hangover from hell when will I learn Arak and hangovers go hand in hand.I also have feet that look like I've walked through a bramble bush which is a little bit confusing as there aren't any bramble bushes between the bar and my bungalow. After a few coffees I begin to feel a little normal. I need to go to the cashpoint so extended my bike for another day and ride down to the cashpoint which is unfortunately out of money. Back at the bungalow I have to pack as I'm moving back to a beachfront one. The sound of the sea is calling me. I ask Made where the next ATM is and he shows me on the map. It's only a 10 minutes ride but I feel rough as toast so Made makes me boiled eggs and after food and a shower I'm back in action. I ride to the cashpoint which is also out of money. On Google maps I search for the next one, another 15 minutes ride which is also out of money. I decide that I'm going to be here a few more days so will just head back and wait for the cashpoint to be topped up. On the way back I stop at a little cafe bar and enjoy a cappuccino. I fell a little better and get in the sea when I arrive back and although the water is definitely clearer and cleaner today it's still not like my first day snorkeling although a little deeper I can see that visibility is much deeper. My plan was to head to Ubud in the next few days and I make enquiries about getting my transport there, once again I'm undecided as I will only be going there to do the touristy things and it's so busy with being holiday season. I really don't want to go somewhere just to get the Instagram photo and to be honest I've seen so many monkeys on my travels I'd rather avoid the ones that are more prone to bite. Chatting with Katut in the morning he tells me that on the 17th his 2 elder daughters will participate in a traditional Balinese dance and has invited me to join, my decision is made and I'm staying here till I fly to Sumatra on the 18th. I was going to go to Lahangan Sweet for the sunset today but as I set off the sun is in my eyes and even with sunglasses on I'm pretty much blinded, instead I stop at the little Thai restaurant NatNat and enjoy a green curry. I'm always wary eating Thai food in another country but I'm pleasantly surprised at how authentic it actually is and enjoy it immensely. In the evening I catch up with home, and spending time with a family here has definitely made me realise how lucky I am to have my daughter and her partner helping with my Airbnb so I can navigate the world, and am blessed because without them I couldn't be here now. Another thing I miss is the ability to cook, I love to cook at home and can't wait to spend a day in the kitchen and have all the family around to enjoy the feast. I share a few beers with Nico and Katut in the evening but am absolutely done in and excuse myself early to get an early night for the first time in a while.Read more

    • Day 33


      September 29, 2015 in Indonesia ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

      After a few days in Ubud. I wanted to go to Java but the next shuttle bus leaves at the 5th of October! Ever-changing plans in Indonesia.
      So I decided to get a scooter and go to "Amed".
      The last part of the road there was very nice with Rice Terraces and mountain view. Even a little mountain pass road made the drive very enjoyable.
      The first impression of the Coastline just called "Amed" is pretty nice! Black volcanic beaches and lots of little villages on the way.
      Always in the background "Mt Agung".

      Nach nun ein paar Tagen in Ubud, wollte ich eigentlich nach Java. Jedoch geht der nächste Shuttle Bus erst am 5ten Oktober - Immer ähndern sich die Pläne hier!
      Also geht es nun mit dem Roller ab nach "Amed". Das letzte Stück der Straße war sehr aussichtsreich mit Reisfeldern und Blick auf die Berge. Auch machte eine kleine Passstraße viel Spaß zum fahren.
      Der erste Eindruck von dem Küstenabschnitt "Amed" ist schon mal sehr schön. Immer im Hintergrund steht der "Mt Agung"

      Relaxing day at the beach house

      May 4 in Indonesia ⋅ 🌙 26 °C

      We chose to relax and enjoy what our beach house had to offer. From swimming in the pool, to badminton, to observing the 8-10” Tokay geckos we had a lot of fun.

      Traveler  Where’s the pic of Dave riding this?

      Traveler  I think there are a few from the other Bali house
