On Thursday morning we packed our bags and headed to Padang Bay to catch a speed boat to Gili Islands.

 
 

 We bought the speed boat tickets from the harbour and the boat left at nine o´clock and it arrived to Gili Trawangan at eleven. In Gili T we first had lunch and then went to our hotel. We just took it easy and hung by the pool. In the evening we went cycling around the island with bikes we got from our hotel. We watched the sunset and had some dinner. Then we cycled back and went to sleep.

 
 
 
 

The next morning, we woke up at eight o´clock and had breakfast at the hotel. At eleven we went on a snorkeling trip that we had booked. It was a six hour trip and we went snorkeling in three different places around the three islands. We went to see turtles, the underwater statue and a coral reef with a lot of fish. The first place we went to we saw turtles! It was amazing! We saw many and one of them was huuuge! Then we snorkeled in front of Gili Meno where the underwater statue was located and then had a break on the island as well.  In the end we stopped in Gili Air and had some lunch. Then it was time to go back to Gili T.

 
 
 
 
 
 

 On Saturday we decided to go on another snorkeling trip again because we had so much fun the day before. But this time the trip lasted three hours and we had much more time in the Gili Air. So we went to a beach and chilled there. And we found a really cute swing at the beach. In the evening we had dinner in a place called The Banyan Tree and they have really good food and they have only vegetarian or vegan options which was nice. After dinner we were so tired that we went straight to bed.

 On Sunday we ate breakfast and packed our things and headed to the harbour where our boat left. First the meaning was to go back to Bali later in the afternoon but then we wanted to go home earlier so we left with a boat that left at one o´clock. We were back in Padang Bay around four. Then at seven o’clock we were back in Canggu. It was nice to be home pretty early because then we had time to go grab some dinner at La Baracca.
