On the 12th, went surfing in Kuta Beach. We played a game of “Boter-Kaas-en-Eieren” with a dude on the beach, the wager was a beer. After losing the game, everyone at the Surf rental wanted a beer. in the end spend like 10 euro on beers… but well… it’s still vacation.
The ticket to Vietnam is purchased and the visa (30 days, single entry) is arranged. First singapore and then off to Nam… the only problem is that it’s rainy season in the whole Asia continent….
And today (14 Jun) it’s also a quite rainy day here in Bali. So i don’t really know what to do today, but i’ll figure something out.
Tomorrow the plan is to go Urban exploring in Bali’s abandoned theme park and then continue on to Ubud to go swim in some waterfall and explore the Rice terraces of Tallengang.
Kos 168 in Jimbaran. (It’s KOS not kost or koste :P) The place I now call home. It’s some kind of social living. You share a pool, kantine and WiFi. Everyone has his/her own little room with shower and toilet.
Wednesday a party on the beach.
Yesterday I dropped some fellow Kos habitants off at the airport. The traffic in Bali is organised chaos… Not so chaotical as in Vietnam. There are more traffic lights and rules but still scooters own the road… Overtaking left or right wherever there is room.
It takes a bit of time getting used to driving on the left, but now im a real Indonesian pro.
Geger beach yesterday.
A few bintangs, swimming and just relaxing in general.
After that some drinks back at the Kos.
After that a party in La favella in Seminyak, Kuta.
I think I met my Indonesian twin brother.
Yesterday I met up with Temmy. We have a lot in common and we immediately had some sort of connection.
Had some breakfast and went to his “cost” a sort of living situation where you get a room with shower and toilet, but you share a pool, canteen and other facilities. And there are like 20/30 others and all is a quite social happening. “Ons kent ons”
After that we went to Uluwatu beach for my first reef break ever. It was pretty crowded and I didn’t catch a lot of waves due to that but it was still and awesome experience; paddling out over a reef full of tropical fish, getting bitten by the plankton and fighting the current to get back to the sheltered beach (between two rocks) where I could finally rest again.
After that it was some R&R back at Temmy’s place, where I’ll be crashing tonight.
I’ve made it to Bali. Haven’t been blogging a lot lately, mostly due to the unavailability of free internet in Australia. But the last week was a good one. Skydiving, scuba diving, rotnest island ( cute quokkas!!! ) and an awesome time in Fremantle.
As soon as the plane dipped down to Bali I got the weird feeling of coming home. I saw a few boats in kuta harbor none like our Dutch boats and the scenery looks nothing like Holland. Still the weird feeling of Home.
After my couch surfing buddy picked me up from the airport and drove me via a restaurant (1€ super nice local food) to my hostel, it’s now time for some well deserved rest. Tomorrow I will check-out and checkout the beach here in Kuta. Should be a 1m swell and a lot of locals and rubbish to dodge… It’ll be fun they said 😉
For now. AC in the room and off to bed, because man it’s ballsweaty hot here.
also my flight was really chill because I had 3 seats for myself
