It’s been a month now since I came to Bali. I can hardly believe that so much time has passed already. It is so incredibly fast moving here. Each single day is so busy, you are either at the beach, surfing or visiting other beautiful and unforgettable places.
This weekend we took a speedboat from the port “Padang Bai” to the Gili Islands to escape from all the stress in the city and the noises of scooters and cars.
The three Gili Islands are located in the northeastern coast of Lombok. And it took us about one hour and a half to get there.
We went to Gili Trawangan for the first night, which has a large range of bars and beach clubs for a fun night with friends and for the second night to the Gili Air Island, which was especially for me the most beautiful. The Gili Air island is more calm and relaxed in my opinion and you can see so many colored and exotic fishes by snorkeling.
In contrast to the city, there are on the Gili islands no cars or scooters, you only move with horse-drawn carriages or bicycles. Can you imagine how quiet it is???
Well, the three islands are very different regarding the atmosphere but all three of them have those beautiful beaches with white sand and turquoise water.
A dream, I tell you.
At Gili Air we stayed in the hotel Bel Air, which I can really recommend. We had some really nice sun lounger with a fantastic and absolutely amazing view – as you can see in the pictures. You are laying there and suddenly so many things go through your head. This is how I especially felt. I thought about: What is my aspiration in life? And my answer is just “happiness”. I think this is something you learn here. Don’t worry be Happy and just smile because this is still free in world.
I also thought, ok, while I´m chilling here in paradise my parents a working in Germany 😀 my poor parents.
If you guys are around Bali I can recommend you to take this trip to the Gili islands, it is definitely worth it. You will never forget those moments which can be never taken away from you.
