Pic of the week – 2014/39: Fisher-Boat at the Beach of the Island Gili Air, Lombok, Indonesia

If you´re looking for a really quiet and peaceful place to relax and forget about everything… then the island of Gili Air infront of the coast of Lombok in Indonesia is a perfect place to do it. While getting there is a bit tricky and takes some time (not only cause getting to the island from Lombok would take some time, but ´cause of having to discuss the price with the people in charge of the boats. Best thing to do here is to wait till you gather enough people to fill a boat and then make a price. And as everywhere in world beeing friendly and kind is helpful, too!) , at the end you´ll be rewarded by a fantastic experience there. No cars (are not allowed), beautiful places to snorkel or just swim around. The island is so small that you can walk around it within a short time.  Finding a piece of beach just for yourself is no problem and then… just let your dreams fly away 🙂
