We hug goodbye and squeeze each other tight. Even though we know it’s not goodbye forever, our hearts are heavy as we drive further and further away.
On our last day we had breakfast at our Air Bnb and then went back to Gili Bliss for early lunch. We ordered some Jamu shots (turmeric, ginger and cinnamon tonic) and some avocado on toast.
We packed our bags and went to the harbour to wait for your fast boat. The ride back was slightly more turbulent than on the way to the Gili Islands, but we decided to still give sitting on the top deck a shot since it had been so fun the first time. Little did we know that we would be absolutely drenched about ten minutes into the ride… So after a while we gave up and went back downstairs, where we sat on extremely uncomfortable seats in our dripping clothes and went back and forth between napping and nausea. We were more than happy to finally arrive back in Padang Bai, where our driver Putu picked us up and drove us to the Tegenungan waterfall, which was pretty touristy, but still nice to look at. All of us were starving so we each bought a cob of corn from a street vendor and then made our way to Sanur, where we dropped off our friend Ida at her Air Bnb, since she was staying a little while longer.
We then headed back to Canggu for our last meal at Green Ginger Noodle House, which was epic. We shared Pad Thai, Sang Choy Bow, Gyoza, Thai Basil Rice Noodles and ate Mango Sticky Rice for dessert. Putu drove us to the airport and after a quick hug goodbye we were on the way to the plane. I can’t put into words how amazing and exciting this trip to Bali was! We’ve seen and experienced so much it feels like we were there for months, not weeks. I can’t wait to be back – see you soon Bali!
