Anyone who likes to travel when they have a plan to be married, mostly they will be questioned “where are you going for the Honeymoon!?” Without knowing anything about the rest of the money after the marriage party, or the money inside my wallet. My an answer is, “I don t know yet” (with sad face off course). Though most of my friend doesn’t believe me and think that we have a great plan.
Well, every newlywed need quality time to go. Believe it, most women would badly needs a holiday after marriage. Trust me! All of this is because of the torture in the girdle in layers, thick makeup, the fake eyelashes and the head load that almost 3 kg weight.
Finally we decide to do a backpackmoon, I really want it! Unlike usual honeymoon, we don’t have a clear itinerary, where we are going and how many days we will be on the street . The first destination is Gili Trawangan :D
Yeah! The only clear destination that I want to go to is Gili Trawangan. Three days and two nights in Gili Trawangan would be enough. So what next then after gili? All of a sudden we had a thought to research how much the prices if we want to cruise by Bounty Cruises to Nusa Lembongan. Actually, from Gili Trawangan they have two destinations, to Nusa Lembongan or Tanjung Benoa, Bali by fast cruises.
My husband been to Nusa Lembongan before, then for now he want to show me that island. Cruising by Bounty Cruises is my first experience which they have a pretty good facilities. In addition as a yacht, bounty cruises also provides various watersport activities that can be used in the island of Lembongan, such as Banana boat, snorkeling and also village tour.
But we only intend to cross into Nusa Lembongan after all, and I already feel very enjoyed because while sailing, I seen many beautiful sceneries on the way. I feel so happy here, because we previously sail to Gili Trawangan and already cross from Bali to Lombok for 5 hours straight. This time we actually sail directly from Gili Trawangan to Nusa Lembongan only in less than two hours. About 1 and 1/2 hours exactly when we arrived at Nusa Lembongan. Tis island is just 1/2 hour to Bali, which means Gili Trawangan to Bali just only need 2 hours!
This ship can’t be anchored at the beach so to get to Bounty, their crew will pick up the guests before, with a small boat that also yellow colored, also for landing to the beach, we can also cross using the same small boat. I was thought that it would be scary, but it turns out to be fun and very safe.
Bounty cruises have three decks.The first and the second was passenger room but it still can be enjoyed because they have many window on the right and left side of the ship body. Bounty can be sail very fast, despite the current was so strong, that’s why I can felt the shocks when we stay n the top of the deck. We choose the higher deck because we can take many beautiful pictures and enjoy more freely without any distraction. Though we must be careful with the strong wind above.
Different when we departed, upon arriving on Nusa Lembongan the curis stopped in the dock of Pontoon which already filled with many tourists who wait the Bounty Cruises. They should wait for cruising to Benoa Harbor, well that isn’t my destination, so we should get down here before the ship move again.
This pontoon successfully took my attention, they have a big spiral which used to glide directly into the sea. Also a variety of snorkeling and diving tools can be found there. Though, we are not interested to try it, I really want to immediately pull over to the beach. From the pontoon The Bounty crew send us to the beach with their little boat directly to the villages of Nusa Lembongan Island.
And here we are, we start our another chapter of backpackmoon in Nusa Lembongan island :)
