The Gili Meno Vlog

How is life on a small island like Gili Meno? we spend a couple of days exploring all corners of this island. Some people live there but mostly tourists visit this island on a day trip on a boat from Gili Trawangan.

The Gili water swing

gili swing

Somebody had this brilliant idea to place a swing right in the water close to the beach. I dont know which swing was the first but you’ll find a couple of them on Gili Trawangan. Most people just stand there and shoot a picture for the gram. Depending on the tide you can really swing. I had so much fun on this thing, trying to get higher while the water splashes up. Have you ever been on a water swing like this one?

I’ll be honest, i already saw a couple of water swing pictures swinging through instagram before i saw this Gili water swing on the Gili Trawangan Island. Nevertheless it is something fascinating, a swing placed in the middle of the ocean. This one was placed right in front of the hotel we were staying. Someone had the idea of building such a water swing and now there are a handful of swings on the island or in the sea, however you want to call it. During the daytime the swing is often occupied by people shooting pictures and making selfies. The first time i had the chance to get on it, i tried to swing. first attempt failed. One of the two swings was hanging a bit lower than the other one. with the lower one i had no chance to swing because it was too hard to get enough velocity to swing out of the water. It depends on the tide, when it’s high, it gets more difficult, when low, easier. The second try on the other swing was successful. i gained height once the swing came out of the water. Trust me, that was fun!

Yoga with a view

A house on the hillls of Lombok with the most impressive Yoga studio! Woke up early and drove all the way up to the Ashtari Yoga studio. It is a platform with a view of Lombok’s coast line. The rising sun was shining on this beautiful landscape and illuminated the studio with warm bright morning light.

The Tegalalang Vlog

in this video blog we explored the famous Tegalalang rice terrace. back in the days it was simply used to farm rice. Nowadays it is mainly a tourist spot. but why? because the layers of the rice fields are very aesthetic! The terrace are close to Ubud in Bali, Indonesia.

The Hindu Temples in Bali are full of fantastic details. Statues like this dragon right behind me. Detail rich roofs, inspiring shapes carved in wood and colorful facades. If you travel to such a temple make sure to fully focus on those details. you’ll dive into a whole new world!

This dragon is guarding the Ulun Danu Beratan Temple.

The Pandanan beach vlog

Driving along the streets of Western Lombok to Pandanan Beach. A beautiful deserted beach where i helped a couple of fishermen to pull their boat out of the sea. on our way back we discovered a abandoned villa. Probably the owner run out of money whilst the construction phase. We started the drone to explore the villa from the air.

The Hotel Vlog

At the same day we left Lombok and flew right into Yogyakarta in Indonesia, also called Jogjakarta. Negotiated a fair taxi price and drove to the luxury Amata Borobodur Resort. Its a hotel close to the famous Borobodur buddhist temple. This temple was the main reason why we traveled to this place. But besides following our plans we had some time left to enjoy this beautiful resort. We knew it will be a nice stay but the interior of our room, the restaurant and pool area were really overwhelming. I can highly recommend to visit the Borobodur and stay in this resort.
