The main thing to do while on Gili Trawangan (actually, on any of the three Gili islands) is to get scuba certified...which we did not do. It takes 3 days but we arrived just around Noon after a scary boat ride from Senggigi and just wanted some time to relax.
|Here we are, waiting for one of these boats to take us to Gili Trawangan|
|We almost considered not getting on the boat because it was going to be overloaded|
|But took the chance despite our better judgement and survived|
After making it to Gili, we found our hotel and our room...and what a great room it was!
|Paul likes the flowers on the bed|
|So much space but more importantly - an AC unit!|
|Nice big bathroom too!|
|Only negative was that it lacked the flush-o-matic 5000|
On March 23, we decided to walk around the island a bit.
|Looking towards Gili Meno|
|Also looking toward Gili Meno|
|These horse carts were everywhere but cost way too much so we didn't ride them|
|Mountains in the background are on Lombok|
|Paul was giving a disapproving look at the dirty beach water...nope, we did not go in|
On March 24, we decided to walk in the opposite direction for a couple hours...
|Paul found a statue he didn't like|
|We found more pretty beaches that we didn't swim in|
|It was super hot...good thing we took this picture before I started sweating like crazy|
|It was a lot quieter on this side of the island...kind of wished that we stayed over here|
|Locals riding bikes|
|We found this cool place to hang out for a bit|
|At dusk we were able to see the mountains on Lombok|
