July 23, 2007
First day back in the office after a fab holiday in Indonesia. We sent most time in Bali, but we did go to another couple of islands out there too – Gili Trawangan and Lombok.
We flew from LHR to Doha, got a connecting flight to Jakarta (via Singapore) and then flew Jakarta to Bali (Denpasar airport). The journey took about 30 something hours but was well worth it.
We stayed a couple of nights in Kuta before flying to Lombok where we got a boat to Gili T. We stayed in Gili T for a few nights and then got a boat back to Lombok where we took a trip to some waterfalls. Stayed in Lombok for one night before flying back to Bali and heading to Ubud which is in-coast and is the central cultural area with lots of art, wood carving, temples etc. We stayed two nights there and then went back to Kuta for about 4/5 nights. We then flew to Jakarta where we stayed overnight and then flew back to LHR the following day (the journey home seemed much longer than the journey there!)
Was a fab holiday and we did so much stuff that it feels like it was longer than a fortnight! We did surfing, snorkelling, kayaking, visited waterfalls, rode an elephant, went to the monkey forest and lots of other stuff! Will try and write a few more details soon…
