When you stay long time in Asia, you care less about rice and chili. The pizza is always an event. Pizza served in Gili.

Gili Trawangan

Gili Trawangan is my first destination for a short sea holidays.  Ko Chang in Thailand is out of fashion.

 


Sasak mask dance. Lombok island

It was an unforgettable night.

The sumptuous preparations for a wedding were taken at the village of Sade located in southern part of Lombok. A day before the main ceremony a group of Sasak singers, musicians and dancers played a long show and concert on a makeshift stage in the center of the village.


Watching photos in Gerupuk. Lombok Island

Gerupuk is a small village near Kuta on Lombok’s south coast. The place attracts many surfers. Local people are very friendly and acquainted with foreigners. A fisherman watches our last pics during a cigarette break.


La plus belle plage du monde.

I’m tired to protect everything. I don’t  want to use the stairs to our beach. Those steps will also required protection soon.


Library just 20 meters from the beach. Gili Meno

If you look for a tropical island with desert, beautiful beaches, you should think about Gili Meno.  Stay there with peace in your mind. Nobody will interfere.


Man from Kuta Lombok.

The old man sitting at the front of a shop in Kuta. He is weaving a mat. The beach is only 100 meters away from him. Maybe someone of a few tourists visiting South Lombok buys his mat ?


Beach in Teluk Mawun. South Lombok.

In South Lombok you will find many deserted beaches. A pothole-riddled road west of Kuta leads to one gorgeous bay, after another one.


Pantai Putri Nyale beach in Lombok Island.

This beach is 4 km away from Kuta on the south shore of Lombok. December can be wet here, but there are good waves in the neighborhood.
