Nusa Penida is a small island, famous for it’s beautiful cliff views and bustling marine life. It’s a lot smaller than Bali and still quite undeveloped, which is amazing because you won’t find masses of tourists there. Its smaller neighbor island Nusa Lembongan is way more touristy. We’ve always known that Nusa Penida exists but we never thought of going there – come on, there is so much to see in Bali. But when we wanted to see mantas, we saw they were waiting for us at Nusa…

Happy Nyepi everyone! Do you know that this is the most important holiday in Bali? We didn’t! It’s actually Balinese New Year. On Nyepi day everything stops. There is no travel (people need to stay inside the house), even airport is closed for this day! The point is that the evil spirits roam around Bali and everyone needs to stay still so they think the island is uninhabited and leave Bali alone for one more year. There can also be no fire and only low lights must be…

(We have more current posts on instagram :)) Some of you might remember that we’ve already fallen in love Ubud way back in August 2014. We stayed in a beautiful new house in the middle of the rice fields and just took some rest from all the heavy traveling. 8 months of constantly moving has its toll. So when we came into the house, it was pure bliss. Open shower, big bed and our own kitchen. Heaven! So when we were stuck in high season in Thailand and started…

Since Bali is getting so crowded, a lot of people want to explore beyond it. Lombok, Sumbawa, Flores. This is a 3-week travel itinerary from traditional Flores to hedonism in Bali and some serious snorkeling in between. P.S.: Click on the links of the cities to get information how to get from one place to another, where to find a room, where to eat and what transport to use.

Cheap travel itinerary for Bali? Yup, it’s possible. We were there more than month (in August) and spent around 30 $/day for both, including accommodation, transport and food. There are two major things to know when traveling to Bali: 1. Stay away from high summer season and 2. Stay away from Kuta.

Traveling for a long time means living minimalistic, right from the backpack and it gives you valuable lessons of taking care of importnant things and not spending too much on things you can’t use on the way. That means no souvenirs! Almost 🙂 Here are some of the best markets we’ve been in these months and are also appropriate for the ones with a tighter budget: 1.) Sunday night market in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Hands down, the best market in Asia 🙂 We were so excited about it after…

As long as we’re not too far from Bali, it’s still time to post something about the beautiful Balinese food and food from Nusa Tenggara islands. We lived 3 weeks in Ubud on Bali and we had the chance to taste a lot of local food, spent a week on Gili Air, crossed Lombok and Sumbawa. Currently we’re on Flores, eating mostly Ikan Goreng or rice with fried fish. It costs 10.000 IDR or 0,6 eur. For Mic a little bit more because he has to order extra…

Sunset, candlelight dinner, lounging on bamboo seats, we were having grilled tuna steaks and planning our next move. 24 hours of buses and ferries to Labuan Bajo on Flores. Ah, the pain for a numb butt 🙂 We’re going to spend 18 days on Flores and around, trying to see some Komodo dragons, villages and good snorkeling. From what we’ve read some of it seems very expensive, at least the organized trips. We’ll try to do it our way 🙂 And here are some pictures of beautiful Gili…

Since we bought a mask, we’ve been snorkeling every day. This island probably has the best and most accesible coral reef I’ve ever experienced. The best thing is probably that you don’t need a boat or a snorkeling trip. It’s right in feont of you! The reef is colorful, you see hundreds of different fish and they’re not afraid of humans so you feel like swimming in a tropical aquarium. Box fish, trigger fish, fluorescent blue fish, needle fish, fake Nemos 🙂 Oh and in the afternoon the…

After 4 months we’re back at the sea. It feels good, almost familiar. Warm salty air and coconut palms, white sand and turquoise water. Another paradise 🙂 It’s somehow different from Andamans, Mic says it’s like Croatia’s Dalmatia.
