And here goes the last chapter of our Indonesian trip…. and what a nice way to end it, with Nusa Lembogan.
Nusssaaaaaaaaaaa nusssaaaaaaaaa the wonderful, the beautiful, the incredible, the perfect island in front of Bali.
What a little piece of heaven on earth ! I not only love this place for its incredible beaches but I adore it because it is still quite protected from the crowd. Not a lot of tourists come there (I mean, less than other islands in Indonesia such as…. Bali !?)
The island is quite small and you can definitely do everything with a scooter. Oh ! Scooter at night, when it’s 35 degrees and you have wind in your hair while singing Frank Sinatra…. that’s a synonym of happiness for me.
We were supposed to stay 2 days on Nusa, but we loved it so so so much that we ended our trip there by staying 5 nights. Probably the longest stay of our holidays. But the island is so….. !!!!
It is quite difficult to express myself when every time I look at the pictures and get very nostalgic of the place.
Moreover, the islands has great food spots for healthy or non-healthy people (hahah ! I am totally a non healthy person, if only you knew how much cheese I eat per day…) AND great surf spot !
Oh let’s talk about the surfing time. First time in my life I tried this sport. You have to know that I was always kind of obsessed with surf. Read all the books, watched all the movies, gathered plenty of pictures, I know the surf superstars and I am even capable of saying the 5 biggest waves in the world. But let me laugh a bit…. I never surfed until this trip. HAHA. What a big joke I am. Well…at the end of the day I did it and heyyyyy I didn’t do it so wrong. Actually, I though that I would be a mess. I told Yves « so we are going to do surf for the next 2 hours for the first time… don’t worry if after 20 minutes I’ll be laying on my board chilling out okay? » No seriously, I never though I would take some waves, stand up and ride on it. Like N-O W-A-Y. But I did it* (: and I must admit I am pretty proud of myself and we continued to surf until the end of our trip.
*Note to yourself, I obviously drunk a lot of salt water and fell like a newbie. I am sure healthy people would say that salt water is good for something in your body no ?
So I could write until the end of my life about Nusa Lembogan, telling you stories and tales about this place but I am pretty sure you won’t read this article to the end and I really want you to see the pretty pictures we took there.
