The next adventure – Indonesia

We will be embarking on our tour of Bali, the Gili’s and finally to Lombok for our trek to Mount Rinjani in the next 3 weeks, and are training hard so we can make the summit. We are both looking forward to the break, and will update the blog as we bounce around the different islands we are visiting and will update as we can.

We haven’t ventured to Indonesia before so eyes will be wide open to take everything in and are excited at the prospects of visiting places that’s been on our list forever, and have a feeling that we’re going to be exploring many places that we may call home for a few months every year.

To say we’re not excited is an understatement, and can’t wait to be able to look out on these unbelievable views that reach to the Gili islands and Bali on a clear day, and with our new Go Pro to hand, hope to bring you our experiences as we achieve another goal off our endless to do list. Our future plans to quit our working lives and to be able to travel sustainably are forever coming closer (watch this space) and we will endeavor to bring you an insight into these beautiful lands through our eyes, that will hopefully give you some inspiration to get out and see these amazing places.

Palolem Chai Shop South Goa

A warm welcome will greet you as you enter Palaolem beach, and a visit here should definitely include a visit to Mr Babu’s street food stall, especially if you’re on a budget and trying to save a few rupee’s, and I for one can vouch for his impressive “sexy chai” as he has aptly named it, and at 10 rupees it’s a steal. Continue reading

Cola Beach South Goa

Cola beach is situated 7 km from Agonda beach and a short journey of around 20 minutes along the beach road. The last 10 minutes however is along a treacherous, winding, downhill bumpy experience that’s loosely labelled as a road.
