wandering gaia communitrip Another Flight Attendant Writing The Globe-Trekking Gecko Recently I watched the movie ‘Eat, Pray, Love’, mainly for the fact that it features Bali, plus the other two places it covers – Italy and India, are another two destinations that I would love to go to (watch this space!). Watching the scenes in the movie that were in Bali took me straight back to that humidity, the overwhelming sights and sounds, and the fragrant smells of the incense. There is one scene where they feature an island, and I swear it’s the same one that I went to when we went snorkelling in the coral reef. Of course, I could be totally wrong, but that experience of snorkelling there must be one of my favourite highlights of the trip. We were staying at a quiet seaside hotel in the Banyapoh region of Bali, along the north-western part of the island. It was one of my favourite places to stay because at night the whole place was over-run by geckos! We decided to give it another hour, and eventually set off to the harbour where we would get a boat ride to Menjangan Island.
