Swimming with the incredible green sea turtles of Gili Air

With only a few days left of our three week holiday we made the unanimous decision that Bali could wait, we’d had several days on Gili Meno and Gili Trawangan but we just couldn’t pry ourselves away from the idyllic weather of the Gili’s.

Getting in to the groove of the Gili Islands

A few days chilling on Gili Meno and taking things easy was pretty close to idyllic, but we were in need of a little lash out and a good jump around, a place where we could meet a few other travellers and get our reggae on. With three very different islands to choose from in […]

Kicking back on the very chilled island of Gili Meno

As we spend more time on Koh Phayam, we’ve had the luxury of appreciating the little things; like stormy tropical rain that’s made the sky moody and the children squeal. Of a morning, the sun has been illuminating the ocean to a hard to resist tropical blue. Butterflies have also been in abundance as the […]

Thai idle time

For those of you who’ve never been to an island in Thailand, it’s pretty easy to sum up the adventure. It’s very much like an Australian beach holiday where you spend the day deciding on whether to sit in the sun or lay under a tree, which book you’re going to read first and creating […]
