The last JUMP of our incredible adventure

Bali50We felt free in Bali, some of the most free and easy days of our lives. Time seemed to have almost no meaning now, we were just governed by the rising and setting sun. It had been an incredible place to experience. We left Nusa Lembongan to travel to the Bukit Peninsula, this would mark the last part of our time in Bali, and the last part of our whole adventure. Something neither of us wanted to think about.

The journey back to mainland Bali was much the same, with a crazy boat ride and chaotic car journey through the busy streets. After a month this had become almost normal now, but compared to the ordered systems back home it was just as exhilarating as the first time!

We were staying in an air bnb, run by the coolest Spanish guys. Edd thinks they have the dream job welcoming guests in the morning and then surfing all day. He’s not far wrong!

Shortly after our arrival we were told about a mandatory night out! I could see the fear in Edd’s eyes now that he’s turned 30. After a few Bintangs (the local beer) we headed to an outside bar which was really chilled out. We both absorbed the good vibes, drinking and dancing the night away.

For the rest of our days we drove around on our trusty scooter and headed to the some of the most beautiful beaches we have seen. We were lucky enough to catch Uluwatu with some good swell and see the iconic reef break working its magic for those surfers brave enough to be out there.

For our final night we went to Uluwatu Temple. We explored the sacred grounds, with its imposing position on the edge of huge cliffs. The last treat was watching the famous Fire Dance. This was just amazing, with 70 guys chanting in a meditative state whilst the sun set and a story was acted out. The traditional Balinese dress, makeup and dancing was mesmerising, we watched in complete awe.

We are not quite sure how we have arrived here at the closing of this chapter. Packing our loyal backpacks for one last time felt crazy. We’re not ready for this adventure to end.

Both of us have been able to grow so much together. Edd is so comfortable with who he is, which is just fantastic to see and I feel the same. I couldn’t be prouder of him and who he is. A passionate, kind hearted, talented, surfer hippy. Who stands up for what he believes in.
