Hi I’m Anja. In the following weeks every sunday you can read about new journeys during my semester abroad in Bali.
Whenever you stay in Bali you will make the experience, that it would take more than one life to find all beautiful places of this island.
Sometimes it is a coincidence to find places that you never expect.
For example last week, after university was over we liked to join the beach.
Unfortunately we didn’t know the way, so we chose the wrong street and ended up at a sign „Karma Beach“ in Jimbaran.
It sounded pretty good so we decided to follow that street.
At the end of the street we walked down a path, walls with flowers decorating it. Then we reached a bar of a hotel with an amazing view down to the bay of Karma Beach.
You have to decide if you want to go by cable car that is about 250.000 IDR (about 16€) or take 350 steps 🙂
We chose the second option, because that is the most beautiful gym I have ever seen before.
It is a good workout, especially Indonesian steps are not like german steps at all, the variable height and different length increase your workout.
When you arrive below you have to climb over rocks and have to decide if you want to go left or right to the beach. We decided to choose the left one, where we found a beach with pure sand and turquoise water. Several hundreds meter fine sand that we only had to share with two other persons.
I tell you, it was like in my prettiest dreams.
We enjoyed the sun, swam in the ocean and watched some little crayfishes.
The climb was pretty hard and I think the monkeys in the trees laughed at us but it was worth it.
We will come back.
Keep in mind a Balinese saw says:
It’s all about karma.
When you do bad in life it will return – when you do good in life it will return.
