      Delfine zum Sonnenaufgang 🐬

      June 3 in Indonesia ⋅ 🌙 29 °C

      Heute klingelte der Wecker früh, wirklich früh. Um kurz vor 4 mussten wir aufstehen und wurden von Made nach Lovina gebracht. Dort wartete bereits ein kleines Fischerboot auf uns, das uns zum Sonnenaufgang weit hinaus aufs Meer brachte. Eine traumhafte Stimmung 🌅 Dort mussten wir nur noch auf sie warten - die Delfine. So wie auch etwa 100 andere Boote. Als die Tiere endlich auftauchten ging das Wettrennen erst richtig los! Egal wo die Delfine an die Wasseroberfläche kamen, rasten die Boote schon auf sie zu. Leider nicht schön anzusehen 😓 Trotzdem war es wunderschön, diese Tiere so nah zu erleben. Zurück an Land gabs erstmal Frühstück und dann fuhren wir weiter zu einem der schönsten Tempel, die wir bisher auf unserer Reise gesehen haben. Natürlich durfte das berühmte Instagram-Bild nicht fehlen 😅 Weiter gings zum Supermarkt, wo wir uns einen balinesischen Gin gönnten. Dann endlich hielten wir beim Barber-Shop und für Tobi gabs wieder eine Glatze - dieses Mal auch für Hampe. Nach dem Mittagessen noch kurz auf den Markt und dann zurück in die Villa und zur Abkühlung in den Pool. Jetzt lassen wir den Abend mit einem Gin-Tonic ausklingen. In diesem Sinne - PROST.Read more

      Bali - Part 2

      November 2, 2023 in Indonesia ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

      Nach dem Ende unserer Lombok Rundreise ging es für uns zurück nach Bali. Dieses Mal steht der etwas weniger touristische Norden auf dem Plan. Für den geplanten Tripp haben wir uns mit Sabrina zusammen getan, welche wir auf Lombok kennengelernt haben.
      Unser erstes Ziel war Amed, einst ein kleines Fischerdorf, heute geprägt vom Tourismus. Uns hat es es trotzdem gut gefallen. Wir waren für zwei Nächte hier und haben den Tag zum Schnorcheln genutzt. Es gibt dort ein Japanisches Schiffswrack, schöne Korallen und natürlich wieder jede Menge Fische. Ärgerlich ist, unsere Gopro hat hier das zeitliche gesegnet... Zum Glück hat unsere Begleitung ebenfalls eine, so kommt ihr weiter in den Genuss der Unterwasserbilder.
      Von Amed ging es weiter nach Lovina, wo wir zum ersten Mal richtige Probleme mit unserer Unterkunft hatten. Schlussendlich haben wir eine neue gesucht und gefunden, also kein Problem. Lovina an sich hat uns nicht besonders gefallen und war mehr ein Zwischenstopp. Die Stadt lebt vom Delphin Tourismus, was sich an jeder Ecke bemerkbar macht. Wir haben uns gegen eine solche Tour entschieden, da wir bereits in Ägypten an einer teilgenommen haben und sie zumindest dort mehr einer Hetzjagd gleichkam.

      Lombok turumuzun bitiminden sonra Bali'ye geri döndük. Bu kez gündemde biraz daha az turistik olan kuzey vardı. Planladığımız gezi için Lombok'ta tanıştığımız Sabrina ile bir ekip oluşturduk.
      İlk varış noktamız, bir zamanlar küçük bir balıkçı köyü olan, şimdi ise turizm ile karakterize edilen Amed oldu. Biz yine de sevdik. Burada iki gece kaldık ve günü şnorkelle yüzerek geçirdik. Bir Japon gemi enkazı, güzel mercanlar ve tabii ki çok sayıda balık var. Can sıkıcı olan şey, Gopro'muzun burada bozulması... Neyse ki yol arkadaşımızda da bir tane var, böylece su altı fotoğraflarının keyfini çıkarmaya devam edebilirsiniz.
      Amed'den Lovina'ya geçtik ve burada ilk kez kalacak yer konusunda ciddi sorunlar yaşadık. Sonunda, yeni bir tane aradık ve bulduk, bu yüzden sorun yok. Lovina'nın kendisini pek sevmedik ve daha çok bir mola yeri gibiydi. Kasaba, her köşede fark edilebilen yunus turizminden geçiniyor. Böyle bir tura katılmamaya karar verdik çünkü Mısır'da zaten bir tura katılmıştık ve en azından orada daha çok bir kovalamaca gibiydi.

      Bali - Banjuwedang

      August 11, 2023 in Indonesia ⋅ ☁️ 26 °C

      In Josh's Homestay haben wir Ellen, Dennis, Bruno und Mila kennengelernt. Eine super liebe Familie. Gemeinsam haben wir eine Bootstour gemacht, schwammen mit Delphinen und haben den Tag am Strand ausklingen lassen.

      In der Nacht versuchte uns eine Maus zu beklauen. Action pur!

      Die neue Unterkunft, das Mangroove Bay Hostel, liegt wieder abseits. Die Unterkunft ist genial, jedoch ist der Kontrast zur Aussenwelt riesig. Es ist schockierend wie heruntergekommen das echte Bali ist. Hier an den nicht touristischen Orten blickt man hinter die Kulissen der Social-Media-Welt.

      Lovina and dolphins 🐬

      August 31, 2022 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

      Dolphins day! We woke up early (Bali is one hour more to the east) to have coffee in our garden. At least this time there were no dead gekko hanging around. It was a dead bat 😶🤣 We fixed that and went to village where we were met with the owner of villa for a dolphine your. We went on a little wooden boat and head out.🚤
      Nice to see Bali from a distance, sea was calm, really lovely. And before you know it - DOLPHINS! We were like little kids, aaaaaall excited and happy! And there were also baby dolphins jumping out, close to our boat, this is so beautiful! 🐬
      Then it was breakfast time, coffee, tea and delicious fried bananas 😋 That was just a pause before putting on masks, hold to rope while boat drives and look under water. At first there was nothing much, then I saw some fish down there, rolling around, and then more... there were like tens of big dolphins swimming, swirling around and dancing around eachother, this is just wooow! So awesome! 🐬🐬 And this went on for like half an hour. Holding on to the ropes at the speed of the boat let us slide along side the dolphins as they went. Beautiful! Hehe there are like 10 tiny boats all moving to where someone spots the dolphins 😃
      After awhile we said goodbye and moved closer to coast (while chilling in hammocks) for some snorkeling. First we put some bread in water, there were soooo many fish of all colors! I hade to go in! Corals all around, fish, sooo many! And they just swim around you, come close to you, crazy nice! 🐠🐟
      It was getting hot and it was sadly time to go back, eat something and then check out. The guy offered a ride (for €€ of course) and we went to check a nice buddhist temple, so quiet and nice! We really enjoyed it 😊
      Finally we went to our next accommodation somewhere inside Bali that Lili found. There are little temples everywhere!
      This has got to be the accommodation with best view I've ever seen - jungle on one side, rice fields on the other, sea in the distance. A house with all doors instead of walls so you can just chill on bed and watch the surroundings, can't wait for the morning view 😊 Lady also made us delicious dinner and we signed up for some cooking class, let's see how it goes 💪
      Bali so far is really beautiful ❤️ saying good night now watching the stars with the ceremonies on the background

      No waterfalls for us in Lovina :(

      November 22, 2022 in Indonesia ⋅ 🌧 28 °C

      On our last morning in Amed Mo woke up with a sore throat. I had a headache already since a few days so I thought it would be the AIr Conditioning which maybe had been too cold during the night. But after a breakfast (with a view!) at the blue earth village restaurant, Mo still didn’t feel good and did a covid test just to be sure. Sadly the test result was directly positive. Our symptoms got worse and when Mo and me took a shuttle to our next destination (Lovina) Mo had already flu symptoms. We contacted Fynn, who was on a diving tour that day and would ride to Lovina after the trip with the scooter that he rented. My symptoms weren’t as bad as Mo‘s but I also felt very weak and had pain in my joints.

      We (somehow) managed to hang our mosquito net in our new accommodation in Lovina and went straight to bed again. Luckily Fynn didn‘t have any symptoms and brought us a lot of fruits 😊 actually we wanted to visit many stunning waterfalls in the area around Lovina but due to our symptoms we only saw the street and the beach directly next to our accommodation. 😃We always bought meals from the Warung nearby for take away - Putu Warung - where the food and the juices where so good and at the same time so cheap! Putu was such a lovely host and seemed like such a wise man aswell. He told us about his family, his Hindu traditions and his cooking philosophy 😄

      Fynn didn’t feel sick and had a great time exploring (almost all 😃) the waterfalls nearby on the next day. In the evening we sat together on the terrace (with a lot of distance) and he told us about his adventurous day 😊 one other highlight was discovering a Martabak stand nearby - which I already had on Karimunjawa with Denise, Zoé and Jonas - Mo and Fynn also liked the pancake-like desert a lot 😍😃

      North of Bali - Lovina 🤿🐬🌊🏖️

      November 24, 2023 in Indonesia ⋅ ☁️ 28 °C

      Lovina is a nice little village next to Singaraja (which was Bali's capital before it became a tourist hotspot), located on a small but very long black sand beach.
      As it's off-season, it's quiet, now, not many travellers and mostly couples or family tourists around here, lots of local tourists during the weekend.
      Dolphin tours are THE THING, here, I was literally jumping off my scooter as the first guys were approaching my, offering dolphin tours.
      I've already heard mostly not so good stories about the dolphin watching here, finally I was booking a tour from a guy who was recommended for doing it animal friendly and going to a different time, than most other tours are going.
      I ended up with very mixed feelings about the tour: There still were loads of boats going around, searching for dolphins and approaching them, as soon as they were spotted out. But except of a few very aggressive boatmen, everybody was going around slowly and carefully, when the dolphins were close by, not trying to chase them, but just following them.
      No clue, how bad it really is for the dolphins, for me they seemed not scared and even some were jumping and seeming like playing/racing with the boat, sometimes. It even looked as if they could have gone away from the boats easily, but in fact I really don't know. Due to the huge number of boats, which I really didn't expect that massively, it felt not really right and I wouldn't recommend doing a tour like this, there, if you have any other options to see them in a better setting.
      But I can understand why so many people (mostly local tourists were on the boats) want to see the lumba-lumba, as Indonesians are calling dolphins, they are amazing animals. 🥰
      On the other hand, snorkeling here was awesome, it widely reminded me of Karimunjawa, beautiful reefs and loads of fishes - never can get enough of the amazing beauty of a nice reef. 😍
      Had a great time here, thanks to Tea, my travel mate here, again, for a few days, I've found a beautiful homestay. For some days I was the only one staying there, I had a nice karaoke evening with the host, his family and a friend of them (and a lot of rice wine and palm wine😅), Sedap Malam homestay is the place to be in Lovina! 🥰

      Hey ihr Lieben zuhausgebliebenen Mäuse,

      Ultra kurze Meldung von Team Cool aka eure Lieblingsrapper Young G & KK vom Flughafen Singapur, boarding ist in T- 7 Minuten.

      War nice 10/10 würden wir empfehlen.
      Jetzt bald boarding, keine Zeit mehr bis bald in echt!
      Kuss Kai und Niclo

      Lovina Beach

      August 26, 2022 in Indonesia ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

      Lovina ist berühmt für seinen Strand und die Delphine.

      Der Strand war dreckig und voller Touristenboote. Delphine sieht man nur, wenn man eines der Touristenboote nimmt, die die Tiere dann quasi jagen, damit die Touristen scöne Fotos für ihr Geld bekommen. Habe ich drauf verzichtet.

      Wir haben stattdessen ein gemeinnütziges Café besucht. Die Angestellten waren taub aber sehr freundlich. Außerdem gab es einen kleinen Shop, in dem handgemachte Kleinigkeiten verkauft wurden. Ich habe ein Armband und einen Traumfänger gekauft.

      Danach haben wir einen örtlichen Markt besucht.
      Die Fisch- und Fleischstände stanken furchtbar, da half auch durch den Mut atmen nicht.
      Ansonsten gab es Unmengen an Früchten, Gemüse, Reis in jeder Form und Farbe, Hülsenfrüchte und Gewürze.
      Wir haben eigenartiges Obst probiert, Mangustinen, Lycheekirschen, Wasserguaven.
      An einem der Gewürzstände lief eine Kakerlake auf einer der Schalen rum. Schien keinen zu stören.

      Selbstverständlich hat auch der Markt seinen eigenen Tempel.

      💕 Verblijf in het plaatsje Lovina 💕

      January 20, 2023 in Indonesia ⋅ 🌧 28 °C

      Mijn reis op Bali heeft zich verder vervolgd in Noord-Westelijke richting. Fijn twee nachten verbleven in het leuke strandplaatsje Lovina.

      Daar hebben we een avond heerlijk hebben gegeten in het global village foundation café. Waar doven een werkplek aangeboden krijgen. De opbrengst wordt ook gebruikt voor o.a. de aanschaf van rolstoelen.

      De andere avond was op het strand, waar we uitgebreid bij een oude lokale vrouw hebben mogen eten 🙏🏼👌.

      Hier ook veel kunnen zien hoe de lokale bevolking leeft en zich vermaakt.
