Pensive | As we have one day left in Asia, we're thinking about the good, the bad and the ugly times we've had over the last 15 months. ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™‰๐Ÿ™Š . . Before this photo was taken a few days ago our bag was stolen from the boot of our scooter (at Greenbowl beach so please be careful if you're in the area) ๐Ÿ˜คnot a great end to our last few days and it's the first time anything like this has happened since we left last March. But you take the bad with good and think about all the great times that trump the rest.๐Ÿ•บ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ . . We're going to miss the great food, the local people who welcome us with big smiles, new culture, cheap double rooms and just how easy it is to stay on budget. ๐Ÿ˜It's crappy when you're conned, have to pay double what the locals do and are stared at all day but those few hard times can never get us down! Here's to you Asia ๐Ÿฅ‚ . . #exploreasia #amazingasia #explorebali #balitrip #traveltheworld #igtravel #instatravel #worldtraveller #adventuretime #travelbogger #travelblog #travelwithus #passporttoasia #exploretocreate #happiness #letsflyawayto #exploretheworld #beautifuldestinations #wonderful_places #speechlessplaces #lovetotravel #minimalisttravel #quitthegrind

Soaking up the sun | It's our last few days in Asia before we head to Perth where it's cold! โ˜€๏ธ . . We're not typical beach people, we get restless when we lie in the sun and can't sit still for more than ten minutes. ๐Ÿ•บ๐ŸผIt also doesn't help that we are awfully pale. ๐Ÿ…Nyang Nyang beach was a great playground for us, with these graffiti ships and a ton of rocks to climb! ๐Ÿ‘ฏ . . Any other restless beach goers? Or is everyone else a bronzed babe?๐Ÿ”ฅ . . #exploreindonesia #wonderfulindonesia #explorebali #baliguide #igtravel #instatravel #traveltheworld #createtoexplore #exploretheworld #lovetotravel #travewithus #adventuretime #beautifuldestinations #wonderful_places #worldtraveller #letsflyawayto #speechlessplaces #passport_travel #travelblogger #travelblog #beach #girlsthatwander #gltlove #quitthegrind

Warming up | A great start to the day at Tukad Cepung waterfalls! โ˜€๏ธ . . With sunshine following two cloudy days, it was the perfect conditions to visit the waterfall, best for a bright day day for the sun's rays to beam down on you. ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ . .

Manta heaven | Our third time snorkelling with Mantas and it gets even more thrilling each time. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป . . Nothing beats swimming with big sea creatures you only ever see on your TV screen. ๐Ÿ‘€It looks daunting but as soon as you're in the water and they glide by, all you want to do is catch up with them. . . Budget tip: head down to Crystal Bay beach around 7am. You'll be able to negotiate with the boat drivers at the tour hut. We got a private boat for 400,000 Rp (ยฃ20) for 2/3 hours. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป . . #wonderfulindonesia #explorebali #nusapendia #mantaray #underwaterworld #marinelife #amazingplaces #igtravel #instatravel #traveltheworld #createtoexplore #exploretheworld #lovetotravel #travelwithus #travelblogger #worldtraveller #adventuretime #beautifuldestinations #wonderful_places #worldtraveller #letsflyawayto #speechlessplaces #quitthegrind

Crazy views | At Banah Cliff in Nusa penida we got to admire these views from a Hindu temple whilst we listened to traditional music. ๐ŸŽถYou can't get more authentic. . . The island views are just crazy here. We are stunned at every corner we turn. ๐Ÿ˜ . . And the locals have the happiest faces we've seen in a while.

Spoiled rotten in Bali | We'll be honest, we had mixed feelings about Bali before we came. ๐Ÿ˜ฌWe only saw the select places online which are popular with tourists. Not the locals favourite places or the less visited destinations. . . When you head away from the busy towns in the south you're greeted by so much beauty from all round. . . You can't judge a book by its cover and we were pleasantly surprised with all this island has to offer. ๐Ÿ˜ . . #wonderfulindonesia #explorebali #igtravel #instatravel #traveltheworld #createtoexplore #exploretheworld #lovetotravel #travelwithus #travelblogger #worldtraveller #adventuretime #beautifuldestinations #wonderful_places #worldtraveller #letsflyawayto #speechlessplaces #quitthegrind

Sekumpul waterfall | It's so big, we can't fit it all in! ๐Ÿ‘€ . . Such an epic waterfall, it dwarfs anything beneath it.

Always thinking of the budget l We're not the first and certainly won't be the last, but renting a scooter has saved us lots and lots pennies! ๐Ÿ›ตIt's not for everyone and it wasn't for us at first, but we're pretty happy with our savings!๐Ÿค‘ . . A typical bus journey in Bali between tourist destinations might set you back around $7 or more. We've rented a scooter in both Lombok and North Bali so far costing $2.50 per day for rental longer than two weeks, plus petrol is $1.50 maybe every two days.๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป We've spent 2/3 days in each place, exploring every inch we can. We won't sit here and do loads of maths, but we've probably saved $100 choosing our scooter.๐Ÿ’ฐ . . But we are also lucky that our bags are small enough to fit one on Megan's back and one on the driver foot rest, so we just need the one bike! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป . . #amazingindonesia #visitbali #wonderfulindonesia #exploreindonesia #explorebali #amazingasia #speechlessplaces #mtagung #wonderful_places #destinationearth #travelgram #adventuretime #vacationgoals #traveltips #travelbyscooter #alternativetravel #budgettravel #budgetbackpacking #travelblog #tipsfortravellers #budgeting #travelforlonger #longtermtravel #quitthegrind

Its all fun and games... | And rather handy that this abandoned amusement park is accessible to the public to play in! ๐ŸŽก . . However we didn't have a spring in our step five minutes before this shot. There's a local man standing outside the (it cannot be emphasised enough) abandoned!!!! amusement park demanding money from tourists! ๐Ÿ˜ He said we are not Indonesian and he leads ceremonies (which we don't benefit from) so he needs money from us. He asked for the equivalent of ยฃ4 - waayyy over the going tourist rates. So we laughed and walked on but he screamed and screamed until he got 50p out of us. ๐Ÿ™„ . . Has anyone else had a run in with this grumpy old man too? ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸผThings can turn sour so quickly and we were so close to leaving. But why should something spoil our fun!? ๐Ÿ‘ฏWe shrugged it off and laughed at how outrageous it was. We're glad we did, because it's such a great spot!! โ˜บ๏ธ . . #exploreindonesia #tamanfestivalbali #wonderfulindonesia #explorebali #baliindonesia #baligasm #abandonedamusementpark #amusementpark #thebalibible #bali #backpackerlife #backpackerstory #backpackersintheworld #travelguide #traveltip #travelbug #travelgirlsgo #gltlove #girlsthatwander #travelbloggers #traveldeeper #traveladdicts #budgettravel #exploretocreate #newadventures #asiatopphoto #adventure #quitthegrind

Tiny house inspiration | Our dream one day is to build our very own Tiny House!๐Ÿก We live minimalist lives, with cabin sized bags that fit all our essentials in. It's refreshing to have very little to worry over! When we have a home it'll be the right size for us, with just the possessions that serve a purpose! ๐Ÿ‘ซ . . We love being nomads but also can't wait to put our own stamp on something that we build! It's not even reality yet, but we can't wait to design the inside & out and Bali has been giving us both huge inspiration into the detail we can include. ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฉWe'll take a piece of each country we have travelled, to add to the aesthetic!

Volcano obsessed | Here's Mt Batur just after sunrise. ๐ŸŒ„ . . Hundreds of tourists wake in the middle of the night to climb to the top of Batur. โœจWe watched from the lesser known Bunbulan hill viewpoint, as they lit up the volcano with their twinkling torches. It was a great view for us, thanks fellow tourists. ๐Ÿ˜‚ . . Although we didn't see inside the crater, we are all about the views of the wonder itself and obviously the budget option. Megan was pretty pleased to reach the top of our viewpoint after we scaled an upright hill like mountain goats.
