At the end of July I flew home from Korea to spend a month and a half with my parents on their farm in Queensland. I love my parents, but six weeks is probably three weeks too long for all parties involved. So I did what I always do when I’m at home, I planned my next trip. The only problem was that my next trip was visiting my friend on Tioman Island for a few months and apart from booking a couple of flights and checking the timing of the bus and ferry, there wasn’t really that much planning to do. I still need to talk to some friends about meeting up in Thailand after Malaysia, but considering I want to be there next year, it doesn’t really seem worth it. I would also like to meet up with Jess and visit Angkor Wat, but it also depends on money – for both of us!
There are some beautiful spots in Indonesia:
Nusa Lembongan ~ Good if you’re into peace and quiet, and a bit of surfing. Not so good for diving. They have manta rays, but as I went in the low season, the water was too rough to go see the the mantas!
I only went to Nusa Lembongan because I arrived in Sanur after 1pm, and there were no more boats to the Gili islands. As it was on the way to the Gillis (kinda), I decided I would spend a night at Nusa Lembongan.
Everyday I daydream about diving. It’s an obsession with me. I spend countless hours reading online blogs on diving (good thing I don’t have a job anymore!), searching for the best (cheapest) places to get certified – if the place has amazing beaches that doesn’t hurt either.
