Gili Islands, off coast of Lombok

Seaside hookah lounge.

Glass bottom boat.
Internet is expensive so I'll keep this brief... twelve hour journey on slow boat and bus transfers from Ubud to Gili Trawangan (largest of three Gili islands).... imagine warm, crystal clear waters with at least 30 ft. visibility, filled with turtles and sea creatures spanning all colors of the rainbow, and every shade in between. Slow paced island time, power only available through generators, no motos or vehicles, only horse drawn carriages and push-bike transport. Laying around on fine white sand during the day, grooving to live reggae at night and bathing in salt-water showers fed straight from the sea... have I enticed you yet? Tomorrow a.m I've booked a scuba trip to "Shark's Cove"- where there are rumored to be daily sightings of white-tip reef sharks!
