First of all a Massive Happy 80th Birthday to Granddad for yesterday and have a wicked weekend this weekend, wish i could have played some golf with you all..... but Ive been on a pretty wicked beach on Lombok most of the day today, white sand beaches, and turquoise seas so its been alright, then we have watched the tri nations, and The Open will follow later with a few Bintangs, the local brew of Indonesia.
we Have been on Lombok for 2 nights now, the first day we hired motos as we did in vietnam, but these ones were a lot more classy, more like 2 years old rather than 20, and were automatic, so we cruised north where the beaches have massive steep shelves, and some pretty good fun currents and waves to float about in for a few hours. We then hit a spot of trouble, as the road was being ripped up, and in the end had to turn back as we were driving in a four and one of the girls fell off a few times due to the dodgy surface.
I cant really believe how quick time is flying, but this time next week we will be in Sydney, which goose and i are looking forward to a lot, as we will hopefully attract less attention from the locals trying to sell Transport, Magic Mushrooms, Opium, Ladies, and Marijuana. Also ill be able to get out the sleeping bag Olly gave me which i haven't used yet, apart from one night in Phuket Airport, as its been much much too hot.
Over the next few days we have planned to hire Motos again and carry on our journey along the coast both north and south as there's some wicked surf points to check out, waterfalls, snorkeling spots, and volcanoes, the next few days should therefore be a lot busier!!
Other than this we have to make our way back to Bali which isn't too much of a mission compared to other journeys we have done, just a 4 hour ferry journey and 3 hour bus, so its pretty simple. we will spend a night in Seminyak, with our favorite hospitable Indonesian guest house guys, and then take the 8 hour flight to Oz, and carry on our journey blending in a bit more!!
Lots of love to all
Love from Indo C&G xxx
