After Bali, Josie, Bryan, Adam, and I took a ferry to Gili Trawangan where we spent a couple of nights celebrating Josie and I's actual birthday. It is a funny place to visit since the island has been completely ransacked by young western tourists wanting to party, but it suited us for our big night. After a couple days, we moved on to Gili Meno for a bit of relaxation, and let me tell ya, it was quite an adventure finding our way from Trawangan to Meno. Who knew a 10 minute boat ride could be such a problem!
The vibe on Gili Meno is drastically different though— much more quiet and much less developed— and it was definitely worth the hassle. We enjoyed a few glorious days of sun, a couple of nice dinners on the beach, and some stunning sunsets. All in all, it was an absolutely fantastic vacation between Bali and the Gili Islands, and it was a super memorable way to mark such a momentous birthday. Thank you so much, Josie and Bryan, for flying across the world to meet up with us!! How about we do it again for the 60th? ;)
P.S. Merry Christmas everyone!
