Gilli Trawangan

Written on: Thursday March 20th, 2008

A bus picked me up from my hotel in Bali at six in the morning to take me on the long trip to Gilli Trawangan - a tiny island off the coast of Bali's neighbouring island of Lombok. It was on the bus ride that I met my Swedish friend Rasmus, who was to become my travelling friend and room-mate until I left for Oz. We had a lot of things in common me and Rasmus, namely women and booze.

Gilli Trawagan was much more like paradise and much more of an idyllic setting than Bali. So Rasmus and I decided, cultured as we are, to do the same thing every day for the next two weeks.... get up in the morning and go to the beach or swimming pool of one of the hotels, have an afternoon kip, go out for dinner, drink a lot of rum and go home drunk.
