Needless to say by this time we were ready for a relaxing break, but no! We had only been in Bali for 1 day when we got a call from Soluna Guest House in Langkawi about Svend which just meant more worries. In the end we decided to put this problem behind us and try to enjoy Bali.
|Beautiful waves and nice walks on the beach|
No hotels for miles nor guest houses and the driving became like a white knuckle ride, but there it was, a sign for an hotel. After about 20 minutes on a small path we found the hotel and luckily were able to check in. This turned out to be the most expensive hotel we ever stayed in whilst travelling. We paid for one night which emptied our wallet, so we could not go to their restaurant for a meal.....teaches us to look for an ATM earlier. Once we awoke in the morning we truly loved what we saw though, just look at the pictures below and you`ll understand.

The driving in Bali is the worst driving experience we ever had and we have driven all over Europe and many places in Asia. We were in slow moving traffic jam sandwiches for most of our trip. Overtaking just before a hill or a bend? No problem...speeding, yes gotta get in that gap (what gap?)

Our adventure was slowly coming to an end so we decided to go to one of the main beaches (Sanuar) and enjoy the last few days with reading, eating and relaxing. Again we found a lovely and extremely cheap family run Guest House where the owner got up at 3 AM to drive us to the airport for our flight back to Malaysia.
Bali was an experience, but next time it has to be either Lombok or the Gili Isles for snorkelling.
