It’s only a few¬†months ago and I missed all of my travel pals already.

In travelling together you will see the real quality of each person that you may not see in daily routine life.You may find a little “crack” but still they are the best among the best I guess ūüôā

Some of my friends start the journey from Bandung (West Java) using an old¬†VW Combi. We call it “Odong-Odong Negriku”

In choosing a travel destination, we usually decide from the specialty of the location, and the destination we choose now is Mount Tambora, probably the most destructive stratovolcano (recorded) in Indonesia with Volcanic Explosivity Index (VEI) 7. And in exactly April 10 2015, Tambora celebrate 200 years of the explosion, the explosion that cause a year without a summer. source: WIkipedia.org

While some of my friends choose to use the Combi and make some stop in several beautiful places, I choose to  take the plane until Lombok Island.

I use the second flight to Lombok, while some friends arrived in the afternoon.

To kill the time, me and somefriends who arrived earlier (using Odong-Odong Nusantara) decide to relax at the beach.

Suprisingly we found several beautiful spots on the way there.

We make a stop to take some picture on a small hill that we believe will give the best view.

Is that all?? Naa.. of course not, it’s Saturday night..¬†we still have lot’s of time to find crowds,

A¬†friend called, ask us to join them at The Deck, a place for people who likes to have chat and pool.. People seemed had known each other.. But don’t know why, we feel it’s not a place for us that night, that’s why we go to Hu’u¬† ūüôā and that’s we called awesome!!

Huu Bali

Huu Bali

Unlike in Jakarta, when you go to a club and have a chat with a stranger, they suddenly expect you to sleep with them,¬† may be not all, but most of them. Even in a luxury lounge in the centre of Jakarta.. Urge you to decide not to come to that place anymore. But not in Bali, or at least for several places we know,¬† more polite. You can just come, dance, say hi, have a little chat, drink. and that’s it.¬† We dance, partying until ummmm¬†¬†3am? ¬†more or less.. ¬†before we go back to Barrida,¬†recharge the energy¬†for the next day ūüôā

The next day is having lunch at Warung Sulawesi, what we don’t expect is, it’s kind of Ready to Serve/Fast Food. But one thing for sure, it’s so delicious!

The Food is delicious, and also the Es Pisang Ijo. Don’t forget to order it when you plan to¬†have lunch¬†at this place. Then, we go to Pura Taman Ayun at Mengwi, one of UNESCO World Heritage cultural site.

The Pura is surrounded by water, lake and river. Once you put your feet inside.. The calmness of green grass will embrace you.. The sound of water.. the bird ..la la la… Can’t tell you for more, you must feel it by yourself.. ūüėČ

If it’s not because of the rain, we may stay there longer than we expected. Time to go.. We rushed back downtown to find a place called Lello Lello Gelato at Kayu Aya 21, Seminyak.

WoW!! Lots of choices, Not only Dark Chocolates, Vanila or Strawberry.. but also Dragon Fruit! Next time, we will visit this place for more..

Still, Chocolates is my favorite.. Yummmm..

Last¬†year I planned to go to Derawan in Kalimantan, Borobudur Temple for it’s stunning Lampion Night during¬†Waisak in Jogja, Fishing around Pelabuhan Ratu area, and so on and so on..

And some of them cannot be accomplished, some of the reason are Limited Time and Budget, issues of most travelers :)) Lol..

It seemed my luckiest moment in 2013 is a 5 days and 4 night trip to Bali few weeks ago. With a different angle. Not only to see beautiful places, amazing crowd and also an ability to pamper body and soul in the same time. A lady wanna be and a party lovers way.

I may not share a beautiful picture, since I only bring my phone with it’s limited memory.¬†I prefer to enjoy the moment, and not too busy taking a picture.

Saturday afternoon 7th of Dec 2013, me and two of my friends arrived in Denpasar Bali. Pick up by a driver that we usually use every time we had a trip to Bali, his name is Made. Unlike before, He picked us up using a 4wd car. The first¬†*Wow* we get. Ummm.. probably because we are one of his number one customers ūüėČ

The second *wow* is when we saw the new Ngurah Rai Airport. So artistically beautifull..

The New Airport - Ngurah Rai

Then all of us going to Seminyak area to find our previously booked bungalow. it’s called Barrida Bungalow. The driver take us downtown, to the most complete area in Seminyak. And there we lived for the next four days..

Name of the owner is Matt. Wonder how he can¬†designed such a beautifull cute house like this. So local and¬†homy. Seriously! well I don’t need to show the complete kitchen tools here ay? :))

The first thing we do¬†after – is to find a place for Dinner. We do hope to find an extraordinary place in a good price.. Then we go to Double Six Area, still in Seminyak, walk along the road, to find a restaurant that hopefully can make our stomach yelling “I want that food!!!!”

Sadly, nothing happen.

Then we decide to touch the water.. feel the breeze of the wind on the beach.. And there.. We saw a stunning Lampion¬†light, lots of lampion calling us to come.. Wow..¬†How can’we saw it before, it’s so near to¬†our car..

ABC1

It’s hidden behind a quite tall wall.. it’s called ABC (Amazing Beach Cafe) it’s a cafe on the beach.. lots of Lampion, Lots of sand bags prepared for people who want to enjoy the beach, feel the sand, enjoy¬†the food, hearing good music and relax.. A place that gonna make you¬†so thankfull for being there.. The Foods are amazingly good¬†and ofcourse¬†quite cheap¬†compare to the service and the ambience of the place..¬†ūüôā we order 5 menus, and cost us less than Rp250.000,- quite good ay?

Well, since Its to dark to take the picture using a mobile phone, let me show you a picture of ABC from another blog (utiedputri.com)
