We had a surprisingly good sleep under a mosquito net in our modest bungalow and woke rested when our alarms went off at 7 am. Today we went on a snorkeling trip with a rented boat and guide around Gili Meno. After a quick breakfast we set out to find turtles and beautiful fishes on the coral reefs surrounding our island.

We stopped at four different reefs and our guides showed us all the different wonders of the corals. The guides were very good at snorkeling and easily went down 10-20m to show different things. It was absolutely amazing, we saw so many different kinds of fishes it’s impossible to try and recount them. We saw flowerlike corals that close when you get near them, different kind of shells and clams, a lobster but most amazing was to swim beside the big turtles. The turtles are very beautiful and gracious under water and it looks like they are flying through the water. We had the fortune to get so close to them so you could actually touch them. At our last stop we saw on old wreck from a boat that probably used to go to Lombok.

After the snorkeling trip we just relaxed by the pool, it’s basically on the beach…

In the afternoon it started raining and we saw a really big lizard walking over our backyard. We tried to get a good picture of it but it was basically gone before we could get the camera out.

We went to our favorite restaurant and played a new game called ‘Schotten-Totten’. It was a fun game and we ate a pizza and gado gado and drank a few Bintang 🙂

  1. This is what our next vacation is gonna be like. Sunny and chillaxing!

  2. Hej igen!
    Fantastiskt, kan inte komma på något bättre ord.
    Vid den här utflykten hade säkert inte filmkamera
    varit fel att ha.
    Vi kan tänka oss att det har varit drömlikt att få se
    och komma nära en livs levande sköldpadda i vilt tillstånd.
    Även de färggranna fiskarna måste ha varit sagolikt.
    Fortsätt njut där nere i värmen.

    • Hej!
      Ja, fantastiskt är nog väldigt nära sanningen! En undervattens filmkamera hade varit super, nästa gång ska vi i alla fall ha en undervattenshus till en av våra vanliga kameror. Vi njuter i fulla drag! Kramar, Grette & Fredde
