I won’t rabbit on for too long, I can pretty much sum up what we did for the rest of our time on the Gili Islands in 3 little words…
Lunch at Neverland Beach Bar, Gili Air.
I beamed with a smile for two reasons when I opened this menu.
I love this sleepy heat when the sun starts to go down…
We headed to the other side of the island to watch the sunset with a mini picnic…
…wasn’t quite the sunset last night as the clouds had decided to hide it for us, but it was still beautiful and so peaceful…
Local beer 🙂
One of my favourite things about this island is the Food night markets.
I had the Mie Goreng Ayam, which in English is fried noodles with chicken.
Obviously headed to the pudding stand where you could create a little selection of your own sweets for 5,000 rupiah each.
I only took my camera on the last night which happened to be the last night the pancake stand didn’t come out. Luckily I was full but it meant I couldn’t take some snaps.
Then Leanne gave into the bracelet man…
…and we took this opportunity to do a wee bit of promotion. He said he would share my links on his facebook… in return for my iphone.
Last night on the island :'(
It’s a known fact now that no matter what time we go to bed, I rise at about 9.30am (ish) and Leanne… not until at least 11/12pm.
So whilst she was sleeping I sat outside our home and watched the world go by. Well not quite the world- but thats the saying right?
I hooked onto wifi, and it didnt take long for two friendly little locals to approach me.
The only way we could really communicate was with ‘hello’, waves and silly faces. So we did so for a while.
As all young kids are, they became fascinated with my iphone and i let them have a little wander on it.
They then discovered the camera…
They we literally so cute and the fact that we laughed so much without verbal communication was so lovely.
Life really is good…
But there was no escaping the fact we were about to leave. But leave on a high we did. We packed our backpacks and headed to the beach to catch our boat back to Bali.
Last little glimpse of paradise 🙁
Our whole 9 weeks of travelling has been so relaxed. If we have loved a place we have been fortunate enough to stay until we get bored and if we dont we have been able to move on.
Unfortunately, for the first time we are on a schedule and we have a plane from Bali to Singapore, so there was no room for negotiation.
My 5 year old self made an appearance…
But Gili T is going nowhere, and one thing is for sure.
I will be back.
3 hours sleep, and we were off to Singapore for a long weekend before heading back to the UK…
