The last week was the first week in my new villa. The pool is refreshing and the garden creates an open atmosphere. It is still so much happening that the time goes by so fast. I explored the new location, visited some beaches and found my favorite Warung closeby. Dreamland beach is my favorite beach so far and just 5 minutes away from my villa. I also went to Balangan Beach and Padang-Padang last days. Balangan is a calm and long beach, which is good for advanced surfers. The water is not deep and full of stones that makes it difficult to swim. Padang-Padang beach is one of the most famous places in Bali due to the movie Eat, Pray, Love. The way to go there is special, because you have to walk on tiny stairs, which are built in a cliff. The way makes the beach special as well as the monkey you can watch there. The beach itself is not too big, looks nice, but is very crowded as well and there are quite a few stones in the water. There are still more beaches to explore and they are close to my new villa, because it is located central in the South..Actually I was looking for a second hand surfboard, but I am still waiting for a new scooter with surf rack. Hope I get both soon, so I can focus on improving my surfing skills.
The week at university was quite ok. The teaching methods here are similar to the teaching style in my home university in the Netherlands. The lectures are interactive and practical. I have already had most of the knowledge from the letures in my former courses, which makes it easy to understand. I hope I can improve my Bahasa Indonesia soon.. The course is interactive and on a daily basis, which is helpful to speak and improve quick.
I just came back from Single fin at Uluwatu. The view is amazing, especially for the sunset as long as you can see because it was very crowded. There is a Sunday party, which is well known and highly frequented. If you like to view the sunset and wanna hang out with the cool people this place is the right one. It is also one of the worlds best surfing spots for pro surfers. It is also fun to watch the surfing pros and imagine yourself there in a few years maybe..
I am excited what the upcoming week will bring.
