After a few lovely days on Gili Trawangan, we took a ferry to get back to Bali from Lombok and then another mini bus ride to Seminyak.
After we were finally delivered to our hotel in Seminyak, we needed to cool off, so took advantage of the hotel’s pool while listening to some music:
Eventually I was starving and we had both been craving sushi for a while so I researched online for a bit and found a few recommended sushi restaurants in Seminyak. We ended up at one called Ryoshi, and it was bomb!
I heard music playing upstairs at Ryoshi, and we decided to check it out. I am so glad we did, it was a man named Yeshe, who was born a Germany and is a self-proclaimed “musical nomad” with heavy influences from Zimbabwe and West Africa.
One of his songs had been #1 on the Billboard World Song contest.
The next day we rented a moto and messed around Seminyak. For whatever reason, every Indonesian man wants to take a picture with the tall white tattooed girl. Hilarious.
We spent the afternoon having lunch on the beach, walking around and swimming in Seminyak…
TANAH LOT TEMPLE – Living the beautiful life –
Brian and I were trying to decide where we wanted to watch the sunset while we were in Seminyak and after some research on google, I decided I wanted to go to Tanah Lot.
We jumped on our moto, Brian drove while I navigated our way to the temple. We got there a bit beforehand, so had some time to explore the beach in the area and take some pictures on the rocks.
A lot of people have pictures with the temple during sunset, but the waves were coming in pretty good that day, and I wanted to try to get some sunset and wave shots together.
Its a great place for sunset, and I highly recommend going there at least one day. On the way back from Tanah Lot, we found a WINE SHOP. Score! And bought a couple bottles to drink back at the hotel.
Now it’s time to say goodbye to Brian, he’s heading up to Ubud to rendezvous with some of his traveling friends, and I’m off to my long awaited and highly anticipated Myanmar adventure. Bali Its Been Real.
