Up and Over The Mountains (pass a waterfall, too.)

The last weekend was quite exciting. Mans and I went up and over a mountain to reach Lovina. Lovina happens to be the dolphin village in Bali. I wanted to see dolphins. Mans wanted a weekend of rest and exploration.

So off we went. We started off the five-hour bike ride around 8am from Denpasar and reached our first stop at Bedugul by 11. Just in time for some pics and lunch.

We left the "Strawberry Farm of Death" (as Mans aptly re-named a strawberry farm in Bedugul) at 12-ish and arrived at Lovina by 1.30pm. It was a gruelling ride full of twists and turns.

If you're doing your maths right, you'll notice the five hour estimation was a bit off. But with lunch and pics to make... we made good time, I think.

We watched a dolphin show at 5pm that afternoon. Tired but excited at the having a weekend of our own.

We spent the night (ofcourse... I daren't travel the mountain at night!).

And headed back Sunday morning. We did a little stopover (and a hike) early in the ride home so we could see the Gitgit Waterfalls.

Started at 10-ish that morning. Arrived home at 2pm. Exhausted but real happy about the trip (and achievement, I must say) that we just had.

I think it's always fun to travel and get lost and find your way back home when you have someone to watch it all happen with you. =)
