I hope you guys are ready for lots of underwater Photos of the Week in the upcoming month… because these days, that’s where I’m spending most of my time! I’ve jumped headfirst into my Divemaster course, which is just flying by. I underestimated how difficult it would be to juggle my normal workload with a full-time professional diving course and of course trying to squeeze in bits of island bliss when possible, but I know I can make it work.
Gili Trawangan continues to charm me. I’ve bought a bicycle, started yoga classes and taken to running around the island (yup, the whole thing — it’s tiny!) in the mornings before it gets too hot. One major challenge I’m still having is food — I haven’t found any go-to, affordable places that I’m in love with, so I spend a lot of the day in various states of indecision and starvation. That aside, I’m really feeling this little piece of paradise.
No motorized vehicles here: horse carts are the local taxis on Gili Trawangan.
While my place is charming, I wish I was living here — this is a typical Indonesian building style.
These waters are turtle-friendly — I’ve seen one on every dive!
I know I had a similar shot last week, but I’m just so into sunflare silhouettes lately! How can I resist?
A friendly moray coming out to say hi.
