One early morning flight, a two hour car ride, a short boat trip, and we've arrived on Gili Air. As soon as I stepped off the boat and onto the dock, I felt myself relax. Holiday mode. I've got a week off and I'm going to make it count.
Gili Air is much more built up since the last time I was here. Business is booming. Still no cars though. It's wonderful to leave the traffic behind in Jakarta.
Fortunately, we managed to find a quiet spot on the other side of the island from the dock where I am now laying out on the beach under a cabana.
I'm feeling grateful for my life here in Indonesia and being able to enjoy easy escapes like this.
