Hanging out in Bali

So we have been here in Bali for just over a week now…the boat from Australia to Dili with the bike has been delayed again…this is starting to feel like deja vu…! So now it is not due to leave Australia until the 29th (originally the 21st) so at this stage we still have another 2 weeks to kill here!

We spent about a week on Lembongan, a little island off the coast of Bali which was really cool. A lot quieter than Bali, some really good diving with great visibility but very cold water – one dive got down to 16C! A great place to relax and not really do much. We then came back to Bali, rented a scooter and headed up to Ubud where we met up with Natasha for a few days. Its the first time we have been here in the high season so there are a lot more people than we are used to but its still a nice place to waste some time. We hired a few scooters and rode up to a temple on a lake (it does have a name…?!) It was a beautiful ride and so much fun to be on a bike of my own for once! Dodging in and out of all the crazy traffic here also added to it…I’m not sure about this pillion deal anymore…!

Dean is off today riding with his friend Kadex while I will hang with Natasha before she heads back to Kuta to get ready to fly home. As for the following days I really have no idea how we are going to occupy ourselves…I have a feeling we may find ourselves back diving on Lemongan again…

  1. Following with interest! Looks very relaxing. How long are you planning on spending in Bali? Look after yourselves. Xx

  2. Hi there,
    It’s not a holiday until you have a drink out of a tropical fruit (or large seed). Maybe you need a side car for Betsy? Caught up with Imogen this week, who strangely new me as Dave, wonder where she picked up that moniker from? 😉
