We checked out, bought some gin from the shop and got in a taxi to Seminyak.. The traffic was pretty bad.. Welcome to Seminyak, gosh its soo hectic. We checked into Harmony Hotel. Really nice hotel, 5 minute walk to the beach, lush big pool, our room looked like little apartment homes, we unpacked and went down to sunbath.
There wasn't any sun loungers left so this girl who was reading a book in the pool gave us hers, it was baking hot, probably the hottest day so far i reckon, i couldn't stick it, so had a swim and coz not a massive fan of sunbathing i went back to the room, geeeezzzz the room was baking hot too, even with the air con on full, was making me feel a bit sick really.
We had shower and no joke when we got out and dried off, we were jus sweating again. Obvs the air con wasn't working properly, so went down to reception to ask if we could move rooms and they moved us to the next one.. Ahh soo much better, we were like torturing ourselves for a couple hours.. haha.
We played cards and had a couple gins, then got a taxi into Kuta town.
After a few bars.... we ended up in Sky Garden, it was 150,000 to get in with two drinks. Was different from the last time, i had food and drinks unlimited for 100.000. Danced on the bar.. hahaha, then went down to this club, proper EDM shit!!!! Everyone in there was loving it tho, like crazy dancing, clearing spaces so they could do the worm, one matey on stage loving his life, a roider Asian going for it and this Indian matey swinging one arm in the air.. it was hilarious!! All these Indians wanting photos with us and filming us.. hahaha.. whats with this? Next minute one of the Indian men put his arms right over Zoe and danced, it was soooo bloody funny!! But the beat of this music physically made me feel sick, was jus not feeling it!! EDM is definitely not for us and normally we're not music snobs.. hahaha!!
We called it a night and got into a taxi, stopping off in Maccy D's, asked our driver if he wanted a cheese burger and he said no, i
would like a big mac.. hahaha.. oh ok then mate!!
Zoe was out by the pool, then came in and said.. 'Did you hear that, the girl downstairs who gave us her sun lounger yesterday asked if my name was Kirsty etc, knows Sam and was there the night you were really smashed on Gili T'.. Oh my gosh this is so embarrassing, coz i cant remember a thing, i was literally jus talking to him on Facebook chat and said.. there's a girl here who knows you.. so random!! So i went down to have a chat to her to piece that night together, so mental that i cant even remember her, she was called Laura and was staying next door to him, she said i was so smashed, i said oh my gosh this is so embarrassing coz i don't remember you sorry :/
We're not really feeling the hecticness of this place and sort of missing Gili T, so we're cutting our trip short here to go back to Gili T for a couple nights and surprise the beys.
Got showered and started walking down to the beach for sunset,
Sun going down
asked in this place for a return price to Gili T.. matey quoted 700,000.. we said nahhhh 500,000.. so he then said 600,000.. nahhhh and walked off.. then he shouted at us down the road ok ok 500,000, we didn't have the cash on us so they drove us on their scooters to the cash machine.. hahaha.
The beach was so busy, much more busier then when i came last year, we sat on some bean bags with a juice and watched the sun go down, it was a really nice sunset, really nice pictures 😊
Woke early to go to the market to get some presents for everyone, thought we'd get good deals seeing as its a market, but they were a proper rip off, but got it all here as couldn't be bothered with walking around shopping really as it was so hot, got a few nice things tho 😊 Got Rudie this cute little Indian top/dress with loads of tassels on, the women wouldn't go no lower then 130,000.. waaaaaa!! But i really wanted it!!
Walking back.. OMG it was so hot, jus couldn't wait to get back and get in the pool, it was making me feel really exhausted!! We came across this little cafe called switch, ordered takeout, spicy tempeh wraps and shakes.. omg, so delicious, would recommend this place for sure.
Finally got back to the pool for a little swim and cool down, Laura was at the pool again today, so we invited her to Potato Head with us later.
Showered and met Laura at the reception, got the hotel security to flag us down a metre taxi as they are always so much cheaper, but they're so hard to come across. We ended up paying 30,000 to get there and the traffic was pretty busy too, Laura was like wow that's so good as she went the other day and paid a set price of 100,000, such difference.
Bag searched and scanned down.. a bit strict aye!! Walked in, tunes on, big open space with bars, loads of fancy sun loungers, loads of people, and a infinity pool that looked right out onto the beach, loads of palm trees, really lush, perfect photo opportunity. We all
ordered a pina colada, in these cute little coconuts and got in the pool 😊 The sun was going down and the sky was soooo pretty 😊 all the colours you can think of 😊 Its a place for proper posy people really and there's me and Zoe messing around in the pool, Zoe getting on my shoulders.. hahahaha.
Ate in this really lush place down from potato head called sea circus, was Mexican theme 😊 had prawn quesadillas, were so yummy 😊 then headed back in the taxi.. The taxi driver was soo funny.. kept shouting sentences with.. But in England.... But in Bali, he was adorable, bless him.. then he goes.. you know my wife.. SHE IS AWESOME!! Ahhhh so cute!!
Early night for us as we're getting picked up for our boat to Gili T at 6.30am :D
