I just left the beautiful island of Gili Trawangan off the coast of Lombok. Gili and Lombok were even more like the Indonesia I remember. Gili Island is very small and has no motorized vehicles....horse and buggy is the local means of transport. The beaches were beautiful, the snorkelling the best I've ever done and the fish is fresh as fresh can be. I shared a grilled barracuda with one of the local cats while overlooking the sea....yummm!
I am back now in crazy Kuta Beach for one last night before heading off to one of my very favorite countries....Thailand, tomorrow.
