Selamat sore everyone !
During the last days I visited the Gili Islands with my friends. We arrived the beautiful island with a speed boat. I just can advise you to sit on the top of the boat to let the sun shine in your face and feel the fast wind and freedom while jumping over the waves. But be careful for your luggage and flip flops or caps, because you can get quite wet and your staff can fly away.
On the island itself, we booked a snorkeling tour through which we stopped at Gili Air, Lombok and Gili Trawangan. To get to the different snorkeling places, we drove by a glass bottom boat. When we stopped the first time and started to jump into the water, the guide told us that we have to jump backwards from the boat. Due to the fact I never did something like this, I made a really splat back. So be careful, how you jump into the water 😀 do not the same like me !
The tour was really nice and we enjoyed the wonderful underwater world. I saw many beautiful big and small fishes in different colors, as well as nice corals. The water temperature was very comfortable. The highlight was to see wild turtles swimming around. Unfortunately I just saw 2 of them, but better than nothing J
In the evening we went to one of many restaurants directly at the beach to enjoy the sunset and have some culinary food. The day ended with a tasty hot chocolate brownie and vanilla ice cream ….mhmmmmm….
