Civilization! That was our first thought after traveling around Indonesia :)

We stopped 3 days in Kuala Lumpur (KL) on the way to Vietnam. It was a relaxing break for us. We cruised around the city and visited the main attractions. The city is nice and worth to visit, at least once !

Instead of flying to Java, we decided to take the cheapest and looooongest way to get there.

We took a 2 days bus (Perama Company) tour from Kuta Bali to Yogyakarta (Central Java) in order to see Mount Bromo. After 12 hours in the car, we finally got to an hotel not so far from the top and went to sleep for 4 hours. At 3am, we woke up and a guy drove us in a Jeep to the top to catch the sunrise.

Heeeelou from Bali! This article is going to be a bit longer, so enjoy the photos and reading! :)

We took a fast boat from Gili Trawangan to Amed. Amed is a long coastal strip of fishing villages located on the east coast of Bali. It is getting more touristy and have a lot to offer from fishing, diving, snorkeling... It's also really quiet and you won't get harassed by locals (excepting the taxi drivers when you land on the beach).

Gili, Gili, Gili ...Islands of snorkling, diving and partying

The Gili Islands are located about 15 min away from Lombok West Coast. We took a public boat from Bangsal to the first island, Gili Air. the boat trip was quite funny, it was raining and we were about 25 people crossing fingers for the boat to not sink.

boat trip - bangsal to gili air

We spent 2 nights there. Snorkeling and walking around the island was the main activity for us. It was quiet and relaxing. That's a great place to snorkel.

So, after 5h flight from Australia, we arrived in Bali, where we spent another 5h at the airport and took a domestic flight to LOMBOK.

We arrived in April which just after the rain season, it is still low season so you can also bargain more about the price since they need money (We thought we wouldn't be good at that, but we (specially Alban) are doing really well!) :)
