  • Day103


    July 18, 2019 in Indonesia ⋅ ☁️ 27 °C

    Unser erster Stopp auf Bali war in Canngu, einem Ort an der Südwestküste. Hier sind viele junge Surfer aber auch Familien unterwegs und die Atmosphäre ist entspannt und locker.
    Allerdings mussten wir uns erstmal an die vielen Menschen und Touristen gewöhnen und ehrlich gesagt waren wir am Anfang gar nicht so begeistert, aber über die 4 Tage haben wir dann immer mehr alles genossen. Wir haben nicht wirklich viel unternommen, sondern ausgeschlafen, am Strand entspannt und gelesen, gut gegessen und die Zeit genutzt, um ein bisschen unsere Stopps in den USA zu planen.Read more

    Canggu and Tanah Lot

    November 14, 2019 in Indonesia ⋅ 🌙 28 °C

    Some surfing, swimming, beach and relaxing in the hippie town of Canggu - life could be worse!
    At Canggu beach the three of us spend the day - Matthias surfed, vany tried as well and injured Sophie just enjoyed the water and sun. For a little break of sun and some vitamin C we went to a cute and stylish cafe for some Smoothie Bowl Lunch.
    Soon it was already time to head to the Temple Tanah Lot for sunset. What a beautiful light - the temple is located right at the beach on an island. Perfect location!
    After the sun was set, we headed back to Uluwatu. The drive took us 1.5 hours and the streets of Bali were super busy!
    Vany and Matthias do a great job driving those scooters! I just do the directions 🙈🤣 (no joke!).
    To end this great day we got some good street food - traditional (spicy) Tempeh and Nasi Goreng.

    Surfen, Schwimmen, Strand und einfach Relaxen in der Hippie-Stadt Canggu - das Leben könnte schlimmer sein!
    Am Strand von Canggu verbringen wir drei den Tag - Matthias surfte, Vany versuchte es auch und die verletzte Sophie genoss einfach das Wasser und die Sonne. Für eine kleine Pause von der Sonne und etwas Vitamin C zu Mittag gingen wir in ein süßes und stilvolles Café für ein Smoothie Bowl.
    Schon bald war es Zeit zum Tempel Tanah Lot für den Sonnenuntergang aufzubrechen. Was für ein schönes Licht - der Tempel liegt direkt am Strand auf einer Insel. Perfekte Lage!
    Nachdem die Sonne untergegangen war, fuhren wir zurück nach Uluwatu. Die Fahrt dauerte 1,5 Stunden und die Straßen von Bali waren super voll!
    Vany und Matthias machen einen tollen Job beim Fahren dieser Roller! Ich mache nur das Navi 🙈🤣 (kein Witz!).
    Zum Abschluss dieses großartigen Tages konsumierten wir noch ein gutes Straßenessen - traditionelles (scharfes) Tempeh und Nasi Goreng.

    Beachclub & Tanah Lot

    September 7, 2019 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Am nächsten Morgen besorgten wir uns einen Roller um das Gebiet ein bisschen besser zu erkunden. Die erste Fahrt ging in Richtung Canguu zum Finns Beachclub. Ein sehr schöner Club doch für Bali Verhältnisse etwas teurer. Anschließend flitzten wir zum Tanah Lot Tempel. Dort trafen wir uns mit drei Freunden aus Deutschland. "Land inmitten des Meeres", der Tanah Lot Tempel liegt im Südwesten Balis und ist ein Hinduistischen Tempel auf einer kleinen Insel. Gegenüber des Felsens befinden sich Klippen mit Höhlen. In der Ular Suci Höhle leben die heiligen Schlangen welche hochgiftige sind und von Priestern bewachten werden. Anscheinend haben diese Schlangen jedoch noch nie jemanden gebissen. Gut dass wir das erst danach erfahren haben.Read more

    Canggu Day 1

    December 30, 2019 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Finns today! But first, breakfast and pool. We left about 1.30 in a taxi. Finns isn’t far away but the roads here are mental so was an interesting drive..!

    Finns is a massive beach club in Canggu/Seminyak. We’d booked our sunbeds yesterday but there was barely anything left so we’d ended up with VIP beds. Turned out to be the best thing as you get lockers/changing rooms/free water so definitely worth it. You also redeem all your money back on food or drinks so it doesn’t even matter.

    It was really sunny so we hung out with drinks and in the pool... but then about 4.30 it started raining and it hammered it down! We sheltered in the pool, once you are wet you may as well just get in the pool!

    It dried off about 6 and we stayed until about 10 before getting a taxi home (stopping off for a pizza on the way home).

    Fun, fun day!

    Canggu Day 2 (NYE)

    December 31, 2019 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C


    We had a lazy morning and went for brunch at the Shady Shack, a lovely veggie cafe round the corner. There’s so much lovely veggie and vegan food here, which is great for Fran as she is vegetarian. Had a breakfast wrap and a coconut. On the way there we decided to stop off at a spa to see if they had any appointments for later and so we booked in for 1pm.

    I had a Balinese massage 60 mins for 250k which is about £13 (such a bargain). As we booked together they keep putting us in the same room, so the second couples massage of the trip for me as Fran!

    After that we went back to the hotel, went in the pool for a bit and got ready to go out for an earlyish dinner.

    We went to Penny Lane for dinner which is a super cute restaurant nearby, we got a table quite quick and had a nice meal. We then had decided we wanted to go to the Lawn for the evening, a beach club just down the road. Lots of the beach clubs had massive parties on (Finns apparently was having 12,000 people!) but this one was a little more low key and more importantly free entry! We got there about 8.30 and had a couple of drinks but decided about 10 to have a little walk along the beach. There were already fireworks going off all around us - apparently they couldn’t wait until midnight.

    We sat on the beach at a little beach bar for a bit before heading back to the Lawn for midnight. Watched even more fireworks at midnight and then wandered home about 1. The traffic was mental, complete gridlock as scooters everywhere!

    Tried to get food but everywhere was closed so we went for a quick dip in the pool when we got home and then FaceTimed Sam before passing out!

    All in all, lovely New Year’s Eve!

    Ubud -> Canguu

    December 29, 2019 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Time to leave Ubud, but first we decided to get up early and do the Campuan Ridge Walk. This was a walk along a ride (as you may well expect) that started just near our hotel. It was 2km each way so not too bad, but it’s just so hot and humid that we immediately got very sweaty! But worth it for the lovely views of the jungle and rice fields.

    We then went for breakfast at Alchemy again, for the smoothie bowls before getting our taxi to Canggu.

    Traffic was really bad but we eventually got there about 1. We went for a wander around Canggu and checked out the local spots. Had a lovely lunch at La Brisa beach club. Sand is black here (maybe volcanic) and sea very rough so mainly fr surfing. Think we’ll be spending our time at the beach clubs! Back to the hotel- quick dip and then out for dinner at The Lawn. Stopped off at The Slow for a night cap (espresso Mintini) and then wandered home.

    Seminyak and Canggu

    September 28, 2019 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Next stop on our adventure was the beautiful Seminyak where we finally went to the famous „La Favela“. The Restaurant/Nightclub was absolutely stunning, surely one of our highlights. While grocery shopping for instant noodles we met two people who were casually chilling at a table with a bunch of small kittens, which were unbelievable cute.

    Then we decided to go to Canggu.
    Exploring the place on our rented Motorbikes our first stop had to be the beach to surf again, but the waves were hard to catch.
    On our second day we decided to go to the famous old man‘s Bar at the beach. It was amazing and fully packed with people dancing through the night. We somehow lost our key for our Motorbike there(what a suprise)but the problem was solved quite quickly and we got a new key.
    We decided to extend our stay in Canggu for a few more days in which we met new friends, chilled at the beach, explored the beautiful Canggu and ate delicious food. It was an amazing Time in Canggu.

    For our last few days we decided to go back to Kuta.

    Yoga, surf and sunset

    December 2, 2019 in Indonesia ⋅ ☀️ 34 °C

    Mal a luz do dia aparece, a claridade entra no quarto e já não dá para dormir. Vejo as horas a passar à espera das 7h para ir ao yoga.
    O espaço de yoga ao ar livre no meio da vegetação, com o som dos pássaros e do rio que passa ao lado, inspira.
    Durante o pequeno almoço, os indonésios que nos vão acompanhar durante o dia, vão tocando guitarra enquanto outros preparam as pranchas.

    Apesar de Canggu, estar a abarrotar de gente que quer surfar e muitos picos estarem completamente sobrelutado, levaram nos para um sitio em berawa com muito pouco gente, onde deu para curtir uma boa sessão de surf.
    Sempre com a guitarra atrás, está sempre alguém pronto para tocar e cantar.
    Passámos o resto da tarde na praia, antes de ir ver o pôr do sol, acompanhadas de Bintang, a ver um milhão de surfistas a lutar para conseguir uma onda em Batu Bolong.
    Antes de jantar ainda fomos fazer uma massagem aos pés, 3 euros meia hora. Antes de começar a massagem elas perguntam sempre:"strong or medium". Claro que quero "strong" mas ela aplicou tanta força que vou ficar com umas negras nas pernas o resto da semana.
    Tivemos a falar com as miúdas que nos fizeram a massagem, a minha massagista tinha 19 anos, trabalhava 14h por dia 6 dias por semana, na realidade depois dessa conversa quase que fiquei a sentir - me mal por contribuir para este tipo de escravidão. Será que mais vale ajudar a contribuir para o sustento dessas família mesmo que seja através de algum tipo de escravidão?
    Jantámos por 5 euros num buteco qualquer.

    Small waves

    December 3, 2019 in Indonesia ⋅ ☀️ 32 °C

    Não estamos assim com tanta sorte com as ondas. Estão pequenas, mal a maré sobe deixa de haver, por isso temos que chegar mais cedo. Logo a seguir ao yoga temos tempo de comer qualquer coisa e seguir para Berawa.
    Apesar de tudo deu para curtir, a Filipa hoje esteve muito bem, para o ano já podemos ir para as Mentawai :-p
    As poucas horas de sono já andam a pesar, por isso soube bem seguir para o surf camp logo a seguir ao surf e descansar a beira da piscina.
    À tarde mostraram nos os vídeos da nossa performance, para analisar, corrigir e evoluir, infelizmente como não usámos a t-shirt vermelha do surf camp, o câmara quase não nos apanhou.

    Ao final do dia, aceitamos jantar com o resto dos hóspedes do surf camp, com quem já começamos a ganhar alguma confiança. Não sei de quem foi a ideia mas decidiram pedir recomendações de restaurantes à professora yoga, uma alemã, com uma boa vibe, umas rastas gigantes, que recomendou um restaurante de comida local, Varuna. Possivelmente o pior restaurante desde que estamos cá, deixei metade da comida no prato.

    Com alguns resistentes ainda fomos para o Pretty Poison, ouvir uma rockalhada e ver uns skaters a fazerem manobras na piscina.
