TUESDAY 22ND OCTOBER 2019, DAY 123

Our hotel grounds - Puri Bunga Bungalows - Senggegi Beach, Lombok.

I love this hotel, stayed here last year. The pool is amazing and the grounds are full of blooming frangipani trees. We were on holidays today, and just spent the day relaxing by the pool.

WEDNESDAY 23RD OCTOBER 2019, DAY 124

Today we did a snorkeling trip to the Gili Islands. Glorious weather, crystal clear waters, lots of colourful fish and a few turtles.

We were transferred by minivan about an hour up the coast to where the boats left for the Gili's. Joys of travelling in a group, we had the boat to ourselves. During the day we stopped at 3 islands, had lunch on one of them. Our snorkeling stops were full of colourful fish and just like last year I got to swim with a turtle again. Its just amazing.

I think the group had a great day, I certainly did.
