Day 4 and it still feels like a dream. Heart still overflows with happiness and gratitude.
Within our stay in Bali, I tried to avoid messaging people as much as I could ’cause I want to take this chance to rest, slow down a bit and keep myself away from the buzzling and fast-paced life around me.
First stop of the day: Breakfast at Tubes (The Surfers Bar & Restaurant)
Tip #1: If you’re looking for money changers around the area, make sure you don’t fall for those that offer higher exchange rates as there are hidden charges. It’s preferable if you can go and find the one like “Bali Best Rate” – with a green-colored signboard establishment. They don’t have hidden charges and their exchange rates are as good.
Since this day is the last day of fun, we’ve decided to go on a totally spontaneous day. But what I had in mind is to go parasailing.
Tip #2: Haggle. Haggle. Haggle. they may give you prices that range from IDR 500,000- IDR 1.2 Million. But all you need to do is haggle. And when the bargain is done, two motorcycles drove us to the resort where sports activities are being held at.
For parasailing, the initial price was at IDR 600,000 per person. So, in total, that should be IDR 1.2 million for both of us – which is quite pricey. Since my haggling skills are being unleashed, we were given a price of IDR 600,000 for both us. What a nice deal, right?
And the speed boat ride begins…..
I have never enjoyed beach and the sea this much! Forever will I be grateful of the places, people and experiences that God is giving me. #SoMuchLove
Breath-taking parasailing was over and we headed back to Legian Beach. Tired, thirsty and hungry. We didn’t feel like looking further for a place to eat. So, the first restaurant that we saw while walking around Legian, there we had our late lunch.
Since we were still tired – tired not because of the parasailing, but because of the heat, we have decided to grab some drinks first while waiting for the sun down.
At around 4 in the afternoon, he decided join the big waves, surfing and floating in the waters while I enjoy the Bintang beer in one of the benches before I headed for a 60-minute foot and back massage.
While chilling at the bench, I have realized that life has become so fast for most of us – especially millennials like me, who seek and strive for career and financial stability, also in order to take sometime to travel. Given the fact that world’s fast growth and development has made going places within reach.
We still need to re-think our future actions, slow down a bit and appreciate the NOW.
Last stop: Dinner at Sandbar, Kuta Beach
While waiting for our service to pick us up, we stayed until a band started to sing a few songs.
Another day of fun, taking all theses memories – not just home – but for life.
It was truly a life-long experience! So much thankful for friends who shared their happiness and messages, seeing me this happy.
My heart is full of joy, love and gratefulness.
Until my next voyage!
