We had two really nice days in Nusa Lembongan but now it's time for the next island. We have decided to head to Gili Air which is a very small island close to Lombok.

I tried to capture our days in Nusa Lembongan with my camera and I have to thank my two friends for putting up with me when I have my camera with me. The are never safe!

Todays goal was to explore the island a bit more so we decided to rent bicycles. Turned out that we got the most uncomfortable bicycles you could get but we still managed to get to the Panorama View, Mushroom bay, Sandy bay and Dream beach.

If you're not comfortable with driving a scooter bikes are a good way to get around the island.

Renting a bike is around 30 000 for a day

Yay we finally arrived in Bali and spend our first night on the airport floor. We got a taxi in the morning and headed to Sanur to then take a boat over to Nusa Lembongan.

Denpasar Airport --> Sanur 100 000rp for a taxi/ 1person
Sanur --> Nusa Lembongan, local ferry 100 000rp or speed boat 200 000rp

We walked around and got a really nice room for 107 000rp/night per person. The name of the place was Chill House and it has a very good location. We also stayed in a place called Rama Beach in, it's located right at the beach and we paid 125 000 night per person.

There are a lot of places to stay and places to eat at Jungut Batu so I would definitely recommend you to stay in that area.

Time for new adventures and I couldn't be happier to have this girl by my side! I can't believe that we met in Sydney in December last year and that we have spend the last nine months together.

Tonight it's time for a new adventure, we are off to Bali! ✈️

I never thought it would be sad leaving this tiny town but I have to admit that it got a bit emotional. I will probably don't miss the town itself but I will definitely miss some of the people that are left behind.

It's all about meeting new people when you travel and after spending almost five months with a lot of them it's going to be hard to leave. I feel so lucky that I've met so many new friends and that we created so many good memories together. Hopefully I will see some of them again, hopefully sooner than later πŸ˜‰

After almost five months I can happily announce that I've finished my farm work in Australia. Never thought that this day would come, it's been tough but I'm so proud of myself for doing it.

I've learned so much along the way and that nothing is impossible if you just set your mind to it. I feel lucky to have worked on a good farm with a nice farmer and a really nice team of backpackers. I will leave with a lot of nice memories but I would probably not do it again.

I hope it's worth a second year visa!

Yay! Looks like I've maybe been put on a farm now, fingers crossed! Today I was put in a packing and sorting shed, cleaning butternut pumpkins.

10 hours in the water cleaning the pumpkins, could not complain. It's a lot easier and better then most of the things I've tried so far. The best feeling is when you finish a 10 hour day and watch a beautiful sunset on the way back to the hostel!

I never thought that I would do this kind of work. I remember when I was in Myanmar last year and we were trekking through chilli fields and the girls were picking chillies.

The last two days I've been doing the same, picking chillies. I really enjoyed the work, nice farmer, good weather but it's paid per kg. Its better then nothing but it's bad when everything else is paid per hour here.

Picked approximately 24kg in 5 hours, the chillies are so tiny 😬

Still having to much free time and to little work. This afternoon we decided to explore and find the beach. It took us a while, the roads were very confusing.

We finally found it, so nice to get out of Ayr for a little bit!
