One day last October I saw Indonesia out of a plane window for the first time and remember thinking, ‘oh, so this is what it looks like. I’m going to be living here for the next year’. I still get the same feelings of anticipation every time I land here, but now it’s mixed with a comforting feeling of homecoming.
Anyway, I digress, I actually came here to tell you about my holiday!
Last week was spent visiting Gili Air with Erica and Nigel (friends from home) and it was amazing 🙂 I am so lucky that they came all this way to visit me!
I was originally pretty stressed about plane delays and missed connections but everything went swimmingly and we arrived mid afternoon, giving us time to explore a little, drink some cocktails and eat some delicious seafood (this was pretty much setting the tone for the rest of the week..)
The week was pretty much like one long remake of the film, Groundhog Day, but much more relaxing. Wake up, last breakfast, snorkel, lunch on the beach, lazy afternoon, happy hour cocktails and sunset, eat, sleep, repeat!
Just what the doctor ordered 🙂
We did venture out to Gili T and Meno one day to meet these little cuties…
All in all, lots of gossip and tanning, topped off with my first scrabble win ever while we were at the airport waiting to fly home – what a great week 🙂
Now just to fight through 10days of work and fasting before my next week’s holiday 😉
