May 29, 2014 - Tanah Lot

Off to Bali today! 2 hour bus ride to the ferry, 1 hour ferry ride and then 4 hour bus to Tanah Lot.

As we had our maps & books spread out on the table, the owner of our guesthouse suggested that we leave our big bags with him and drive a scooter around Bali. In his words, "Ya, my guests leave bags and go for many days. You stay one night when you return. Good for you, good for me. Ya, Ya." We thought about it for a minute or two and decided 'what the hell'. We packed two day bags with limited clothes and supplies for about 10 days of travel. A taxi took us back to Kuta where we...
