Got off to an early start but not without having room service breakfast on our front porch! I’m telling you, this is a pretty major perk of hotels in Bali: where else can you get a beautiful room in a great location with breakfast in bed included for $12.50/person a night!?
We had a private van drive us to the port where we then took a thirty minute speed boat ride to Nusa Lembongan, an island off the southeast coast of Bali. Waters were a little rough not gonna lie..kind of felt like you were stuck on the worst ride at the fair for half an hour.
We checked in to our new accommodations. I must say pre departure I was expecting that traveling on a pretty major budget would result in some less than luxury accommodations but SE Asia has proved yet again to be the king of budget hotels. We literally have an ocean view villa and breakfast included for less than the price of breakfast by itself at home.
We’ve had a pretty busy last couple days in Ubud so we spent the afternoon lounging on the beach that is right beside our hotel. Despite the beautiful weather it is actually low season for the islands so we wound up with the entire beach to ourselves for the whole afternoon–can’t complain.
Filled the canine void in my life by making friends with this little guy, too cute.
