We have landed in Bali, Indonesia. At the airport we met up with our great friend and one of the most legendary snowboarders in the world, Peter Line. We hop on “fast boat” for about 2 hours and head out to the tiny island of Gili Air.
The Gili Islands are made up of three small islands, just off the northwest coast of Lombok, Indonesia; Gili Air, Gili Meno, and Gili Trawangan. This is a photo from google maps to see an overview. They are very small with very few people living on them.
The middle of Gili Air is jungle and fields where some cattle graze. http://d29pmtsb3j382e.cloudfront.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/IMG_8131.jpeg" width="640" height="480" />
There are some seriously huge spiders on the island as well. If you open up your hand and spread your fingers out really far… thats about the size of this one!! I was going to put my hand in the photo so you could get a perspective… but obviously that meant putting my hand close to the spider which is not going to happen!
Unlike the rest of Indonesia, which has many stray dogs, the Gili Islands have stray cats. For the most part the are pretty clean and i am guessing they help with pest control. Although this one was only interested in out tuna sashimi!
