Going Back in Time on Nusa Lembongan thumbnail

Now that you’ve read about the very end of my Indonesia trip, let’s go back to the beginning. I had planned to land in Bali and make a straight dash for the small island of Gili Trawangan — after all, I was cutting it pretty close already in terms of time to do my Divemaster course…

Gettin’ Graduated! The Kickoff of my Visit Home thumbnail

As I mentioned before, I’m going to shake up chronological order for the next month or so.
