Due some problems and a vulcano eruption in Bali, we had to replanning our trip to Indonesia. We were supposed to travel around the country for a month, but not, instead we ended up to have more or less two weeks. We took a deep breath and, here we go, ready for our short but intensive journey to Indonesia.
Arrived in Bali we spent few days there, we decided to rent a scooter and discovering the island. Was an adventure and a lot of fun driving in the crazy traffic in Bali, and try to not being robbed by a monkey in the temples.
The first day we went to see Kuta Beach, so crowded and very touristic, and then we spent the afternoon at Uluwato Temple.
The second day we drove until Tanah Lot Temple and then we decided to reach a lake in the middle of the island to see Pura Ulun Danu Beratan Temple. We didn’t know where to go so we started asking around. People look at us like crazy and said that we could not manage to reach the temple in a few hours becasue was very far, at least 4 hours, but at the same time, other people were sure the distance was 1 or 2 hours. We were really confused and after a bit we decided to give it a go, and we reached the temple after a few hours. The time for a short visit and then we had to drive back to Kuta to give back the scooter. A long, long day spent driving like crazy.
After few days in the traffic we decided that we needed a rest, so we took a ferry and went for some chilling time to Gili Trawangan Island. Stunning sunsets and an amazing sea were our friends for our time there. We fallen so in love with the island that we stayed there one more daydespite of what we had planned.
On our way back to Bali we stopped for a short visit to Ubud, and then we started running… Since everything was going really smooth I decided to forgot my shoes to the house of our couchsurfer in Denpasar, and since we were leaving in a few hours I needed them back at every cost! Yes, I just realized that after some days since flip flop were the only shoes I needed. After a good man help us and gave us a ride to the airport we were again there, ready to take another flight to our next destination: Singapore.
It was a rush trip, but amazing and full of great times!
