Jul 16, 2017 - Bali -Amed

10 July - Amed, Bali It was a long drive, there was heavy traffic the whole journey and although it was only 54 miles it took two and a half hours of our driver charging up behind the next vehicle, waiting until he thought it was clear and then overtaking at high speed forcing oncoming motorcyclist to take to the edge! Despite all this we made it to our hotel unscathed. It did take half an hour to clear the Ubud sprawl and into smaller villages, rice paddies and banana patches. Nice to see some countryside. We checked into the Blue Moon and...

Oz and the Big Lap

Jun 14, 2017 - A surprise journey back to Seminyak

Today we left Amed and headed back to Seminyak. Our driver was very friendly and asked us if we wanted to stop at the oldest village in Bali on our journey back. We were not in a rush to get back to Seminyak so agreed. The village was untouched, everyone who lived here were Hindu and of equal status. We had a local village man show us around and tell us all about the people who live in the village. He told us that people who are born in the village die here to and all the land belongs to the community. Only the locals are allowed to stay....

Jun 13, 2017 - Finally somewhere truly chilled out :)

We arrived in a place called Amed which is in the East of Bali after our long trip to Mount Ijen and Bromo. We have never slept so good, the place we are staying in is very peaceful and spotlessly clean. We decided to take a walk through the serene rice paddies where the view was simply wonderful. Bromo is easily our favourite scenic spot of our trip so far but it has to be said Amed is the most chilled. The people are are so friendly, everyone says hello to you whether they are farmers working in the fields or other tourists. The main...

Mar 14, 2015 - Back to Bali; Lipah on the east coast

We easily arranged a "fast boat" from Gili T direct to Amed, back on the island of Bali. Out of all the beaches and snorkel spots, Lipah seemed to be our favorite. We took a boat to snorkel south along the coast at a coral garden and Japanese boat wreck, both of which were quite impressive. We also rented a scooter to check out the Liberty wreck further north on the coast, but we ended up having to pay a bribe to the cops of about $15 for the privilege of renting the scooter, which decidedly colored my experience of the Liberty wreck. Great...

Aug 25, 2014 - les plages de sables noirs

Nous quittons maintenant la cohue de Ubud pour aller complètement à l'est de Bali pour visiter la petite région de Amed et ses nombreuses plages volcaniques de sables noirs. Pour ce faire nous avons du louer les services d'un chauffeur pour ce rendre à cet endroit qui est un peu moins touristique. Le transport en commun à Bali est vraiment mal développé et quand tu peux l'utiliser (example l'autobus) , ce n'est pas évident de savoir à quel endroit on doit se présenter pour s'en servir ... ce qui fait bien l'affaire des locaux, qui nous...

Nov 15, 2009 - Last Day in Bali

We are finally leaving Bali! It is around 9:00 p.m., and Vikki and I are waiting in the terminal at the airport to catch our 10:30 p.m. flight out of Bali which will, after a brief one hour stop in Kuala Lumpur, continue on to Doha, the capital of Qatar. From there we will be catching a connecting flight to Amman, Jordan shortly after noon tomorrow. As such, we have a lot of flight mileage and time in transit generally ahead of us before we arrive at the starting point for this next leg of our trip. Given that we have a little while before...

Break From the Law

Nov 14, 2009 - Diving Amed in Bali - Bunaten & Jemeluk Drop-Off

It is only around 20 after 8 this evening, yet it feels much later. I am sitting out on the balcony of our room at the Sunrise Café in Jemeluk. Although we face the water and are only about 10 or 15 meters from the water’s edge, there is not the slightest breeze here tonight. It is hot, humid and sticky out here, and as our room does not have air-conditioning or a ceiling fan - rather, only a small local fan - , we have little reprieve from the still and thick air. Quite the contrast from last night, where a nice breeze swept off the ocean...

Break From the Law

Dec 17, 2008 - Heading North to Amed

Everyone met at Sector’s restaurant for an early morning breakfast before posing for a group foto. While Grainne stayed behind with Frank to hopefully retrieve the luggage held at customs, the two treatment teams headed out for our first treatment day. My team packed our treatment supplies into a rented van and headed up the coast for a four-hour ride to Desa Ban to treat at the East Bali Poverty Project. Last year, GAHP treated ten or so young kids there with developmental challenges and we were headed back to check-in on their progress....

Oct 16, 2008 - Bali - mit Magdalena und Michael

Es ist recht einfach, lange weg zu fahren, wenn man daheim Kinder hat, die einem angefangen vom Reiseführer bis zu den Medikamenten alles was man braucht besorgen - letztere mit Hilfe unserer Ärztin, die für ihre Patienten auf Bali sogar die individuelle Dosierung auf die Schachtel geschrieben hat - , und wenn man dann noch Freunde hat, die einem das alles rund um den Globus persönlich zustellen. Also, Magdalena und Michasel waren knappe drei Wochen da und mit ihnen haben wir viele von jenen Bali-Highlights besucht, zu denen wir allein...

Sep 21, 2008 - Amed

[Lora writing] We left Ubud and took a 3 hour bus ride to Amed, which is situated on the east coast of Bali. We arrived at our beautiful bungalow, complete with thatched roof, outdoor shower, mosquito net, and padlock as our doorlock. Even though it sounds primitive, it was seriously swanky for a bungalow (I hope we can upload some pics, but we've been having a lot of problems with that). As swanky as our digs were, on our last night, a buddy came to visit is in the form of a 10 inch long, 3 inch wide, spotted gecko :). The beach at Amed...

Aug 8, 2008 - Lipah - die Bucht der vielen Boote

Von Ubud fahren wir über Sidemen mit seinen schönen Reisfeldern ans Meer. Das Pondok Vienna in Lipah nimmt uns freundlich auf und wir finden die meisten Leute, die wir von früheren Besuchen kennen, nach wie vor hier beschäftigt und fragen nach Heidi, Lucia und Toni mit ihren Kindern Alex und Tashi, nach Sabine ... Es ist wie heim kommen, obwohl die Bungalow-Anlage vor einem Jahr gebrannt hat und alle alten Bambus-Hütten weg sind. Die Steinhäuser haben den Brand überstanden und Made, der Manager, gibt uns wieder einen schönen Bungalow mit...
