It has been an ultimate dream for me to live in an island. Waking up to the sound of waves, squawking seagulls, and some windy sea breeze. But unfortunately, I live in a very urban city with all the hustle and bustle.
Every once in a while, I try to let off steam and visit the many beaches in Indonesia. For my last trip, I visited the grand Gili Trawangan in Lombok.
The island itself is not big. You can walk around it for 40 minutes max. But, what I got was a home away from home. The beach has white sands, although corals are here and there. The waters are crystal clear. I rented up a small wooden boat and managed to snorkel around the island and do a bit of island hopping for a day.
All I can say, the view is amazing. The people are great too. You know the kind that’s just so laid back but fun at the same time. Sometimes I wish that I could just migrate there.
