Gili Meno - inland and sunset

Welcome to my blog.

This first photo is the place where we stayed on Gili Meno, called "The Nautilus". Very clean and comfortable.

The staff were lovely.

As well as walking round the island there are pathways through the interior that take you from coast to coast. These photos show you the walk we took. Also a few of Trawangan when we took a boat across to visit the "big" island. Finally a beautiful sunset to close this series of Lombok and Gili. I hope you have enjoyed it.


No cars on Gili Meno. You get around on foot,
by bike or on the horse and carts

The sky was blue and the colurs were superb

Stripping corn

A group of local children and the lady who was
looking after them

There is a range of different types of houses
from modern and expensive....

to more traditional

The island mosque. You can hear the call to
prayer all over the island

Goats are precious animals on the island

Near the west coast there is a large salt-water

How about that for a garden! Hope the roof is
reinforced against falling coconuts...

Lovely traditional house. Look carefully on the
right. There's a huge satellite dish..

Cute youngsters with Daniela

This is Lee. A very cool young guy who was our
navigator and turtle spotter on our
snorkelling trips

This is Dean, Lee's father-in-law, holding
dinner. Lee speared them.

Children having great fun. This was taken on
Gili Trawangan
