Nusa Lembongan, a quiet little island just about an hour off the coast, was a welcome change after 2 weeks on Bali. While it had been raining a lot the days before, the weather was just perfect when we arrived on Lembongan. Our Bungalow at Ketut Losmen, right next to the beach, was the ideal place for relaxing, reading and calming down from travelling and shopping.
And, at least as important, the surf was great from the day we arrived. It really is an amazing place, with totally clear water and the view of fishes swimming in the coral reef below you and the Gunung Agnung volcano on the horizon when you're in the water, waiting for waves to surf.
Renting a motorbike is a great way of exploring the island. You can snorkel outside the mangroves and discover some more small bays and beaches.
On the last day, we still got the chance to see a traditional ceremony in the village. Actually, we got no clue what the whole thing was about, but probably the people were praying and sacrificing to scare off evil spirits and please the good ones.
After finishing this entry, we're off to Dreamland again for the last one and a half days. On staturday night, our flight leaves for Melbourne and soon "real life" starts again...
We'll keep you postet!
