Day Trip Part 2 – Green Valley

After the green canyon we jumped on the scooters and hit the road for about 30 minuets to find the green valley (easy when you have a guide). But first things first FOOD FOOD FOOD. A little lunch stop and everyone started to feel a lot more happier, even our guide started to talk & move his hangover must have started to get a little bit better. The green Valley is a very cool place, it has a big cave that you can swim into that gets very dark,  so dark you (ME) might get a little scared if you swim in to fare. There is also some tree roots you can climb up to ledge, that you can jump from if you like that kind of thing.. If you don’t think the green valley is that cool I have saved the best till last. It has a waterfall that you can jump off, then you can swim under the waterfall into a little cave, just like in the movies. On the way home we stopped for a photo or 10 but to top it all off we got to go over a bamboo bridge, that can only hold one scooter at a time. So i was hopping all the pancakes I have been eating was not going to make me to heavy and make us end up in the river…

Day Trip Part 1- Green Canyon

Today we tried to be like most tourists and do a day trip. So we got a little gang together and our new local friend & guide for the day to show us round. First stop was the corner cafe to get a second breakfast as 50% on the gang stayed up way to late having drinks with our guide, who was now so hangover that I think he needed to die or at lest sleep for 3 days… So after a late start we hit the road to  our first stop the green canyon. To get to the canyon you need to get a boat for about 30 minutes its a nice chilled ride up the river, then you need to park the boat & pay extra, so you can  swim and explore the canyon, but its worth it. The boat ride was awesome but exploring the canyon was amazing ..

The Gang almost ready to roll  🙂 ZzzzzZzzZzzzz

There is a very small water fall, that falls onto the rock so i think there mast be something in the water, but thats just my guess  🙂 DCIM100GOPROG0173654. DCIM100GOPROG0163649.

Our guide sleeping we took about 10 photos before we woke him up. He was looking all Zen, but I think it was just his hangover working overtime ……

Surfing Batu Karas – we’re back in Indo!

We’ve been in Indonesia for bit over a week now. Spent a few days in Bali eating to much good food and then decided to head over to Java.  So now we been in smallish fishing/resort village Batu Karas for a week or so. This place has such a nice vibe and feel to it, everyone is super duper friendly, the place is beautiful, the water is so clear, the food is oh so good – so here’s the catch… ther’s been no waves whatsoever since we got here pretty much, I think Sri Lanka spoiled us a bit with nice waves everyday. Yesterday there was some bumps around but that’s the day we picked to do our visa extension (of course) so no waves for us. Today finally we had some little bumps.
