„Awareness is like the sun. When it shines on things they are transformed.“ Thich Nhat Hanh
After two weeks of travelling in Indonesia again we´ve found our paradise!
It is BÄMM! It is more than we could have expected, more than we could imagine –
it is P A R A D I S E for the S O U L !
We are on Gili Meno, the island in the middle of the three little Gili-Islands. Meno is a little unappreciated from tourists, but this is our luck: we feel like Robinson Crusoe…
I m a g i n e t h e s e c o l o r s !
There are so many corals at the beach every day that the people on the Island are creative with it! Nearly no sight without flying corals or a driftwood-sculpture.
We´ve met many long-term travelers here. They are all in the mood for chilling a few weeks and doing nothing, like us. This must be a “normal” phase after intensive months of travelling.
It´s really a joy discussing travel-tips and having a good time together.
Meno is very silent, no motorbikes and no parties, like they have on Gili Trawangan.
Transport is offered with little horse-drawn carriages. But the paradise is that small, that you can walk around in 1 ½ hours.
Our beautiful bungalow with outdoor bathroom and salt-water shower is only a few meters away from the beach.
We have the best place on the island (yes, yes) with s u n r i s e in the morning and s u n s e t in the evenings. We only have to look right, or we have to look left, haha, this is simple.
I discover the quality of sunrise-meditation and celebrate it every day, only me and the sea.
THIS is h a p p i n e s s !
Look at these artful sunrises! We can´t get enough of it! The island in the distance is Lombok.
Every day begins with this great pleasure: we sit down at the beach with a cup of coffee and wonder what a great spectacle the sun has to offer…
And the sunsets are also breathtaking. What a joy!
We stayed for two weeks in our little soulful paradise, and what do you think? Yes, we quit all our plans again!
There were a few plans to visit Borneo and Sulawesi the next weeks. But we are hopelessly in l o v e with this Island and the quality of life we´ve found here.
So while you are reading this we are in Kota Kinabalu for two days, and than we come back to our soulplace!
In the next post I will show you the details on what we are doing the whole day: enjoying the beach, snorkeling with (big) turtles and wonderful fish, sample a few kilos of shells and sea-urchins. Nobody knows how to carry them home…
