Short Weekend Escape

Tuesday, October 27, 2015

Sorry I haven't had a lot of free time to review my travel posts at Bali Island 3 weeks ago. But I'm glad to share at least a few before too late.

As I mentioned in my previous post, this is such a weekend escape to attending my best friend's wedding party. We just spend 2 nights at a hotel in Jimbaran Hills. A very short trip I know. Because at the same time, I have to work my clinical life, and I don't want too over budget :p

That's why we just traveled around some tourist attractions that near by the hotel, one of the closest is Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) Park. It's not my first time there, either my friends Sthefani and Margareth. So, what we had to do was just remembering some beauty spots to take photos.

He is Andre, from Aussie. He joined our tour around GWK, because we saw he was alone walking due to her grandma was sick. How cool that there's still a young boy today who want to invite his grandmother to go with. Then we didn't forget to take a photo with him :D

We cannot go too far, because in the same day we have to prepare to attending the party at afternoon. The party was fantastic! (read my previous post)

In another day, my friends and I didn't take the same flight to return. Because I was alone who have to be back to Medan, while others to Jakarta. So I didn't go along with them. I was looking for a beach which is nearby the airport, and Kuta Beach is the right answer! Then enjoying my beach life before it's time to go back to the city. Got my temporary tattoo and took some photos. Believe it or not, these photos were taken by some tourists around the beach I asked for help to capturing me. Hahaha seriously! I can be this kind of crazy if talking about travel photos.

Oh please ignore my bad hair day or uncontrolled face...
The result was surprising me! Different peoples with many different styles of capturing the photos. Some good, some bad, and others just xoxo. But I think, not bad at all. Beside got some photos, I also have the opportunity to share about my hometown in Sumatera and listened that they enjoyed their holiday here, and sharing the different culture. We talked a lot. Actually I feel shy to ask stranger people there at first, and I just remember one of them said, 

"Oh no problem, it's okay as long as you don't offer me to learn surfing, surfing, and surfing. Hahaha"

LOL! As you know, Kuta is the world's Surfing Paradise, many surfers come here to be able to feel the powerful waves and oceans wild. Many locals also teach surfing for beginners, but in my case it was disturbing. They are too many, and too imposing us to join their class. In my opinion, surf is a kind of extreme sport that can not be learned by simple short course as that. 
Tips for tourist: Prepare your best rejection!

At the end, I realize that my weekend would never be this easy...
