Gili Trawangan - 2015 Dec 19

Up at 6 AM to catch the shuttle bus to the marina, 1.5 hours away. The speed-boat left the dock at 9 AM, and 2.5 hours later we reached the biggest of the three islands, Gili Trawangan.

No cars or scooters here, only walking, bicycles, and horse carts.

At a normal pace, you could walk around the island in probably less than two hours, but I made the day of it and took seven hours.

Got caught in a rainstorm on the far side of the island, so I stopped under a bamboo canopy on the beach. Then I was joined by several local horse trainers.

After a while they got bored and I watched them race their horses on the beach and then bathe them in the ocean.
