My Internship on Bali: More and More Adventure - Part 9
CATEGORY: INTERNSHIP TESTIMONIAL
READING TIME: 3 MINUTES
Bali through the eyes of an intern. In this 11-part series of reports, our intern Nicky tells you about her internship time on the Indonesian island of Bali. In this report, she gives you important tips on preparing for your trip to Bali.
The following week started by having to say goodbye to another person that had already finished their time as a volunteer. This time a colleague said goodbye. Our boss organized a barbecue and of course, there was something to drink :)
The Neighboring Island Nusa Lembongan
A friend from my accommodation (an Indonesian woman) asked me the week before if I would like to come with her and a friend to Nusa Lembongan for the weekend. What kind of question? Of course, I accepted. Tip: On Saturday we started already at 6 o'clock in the morning. A pick-up service brought us to Sanur, from where the ferry to Nusa Lembongan left. I was the only European-looking person on the whole ferry. After about an hour we stopped just before the island. From there we changed to smaller boats to avoid damaging the coral reefs. The view of the turquoise water was just wonderful.
With a Tuk Tuk - in my case an autorickshaw - we went to our accommodation. The small resort was super nice and belonged to a Spaniard. The operator rented two scooters for us so that we could explore the island on our own. Since there are no police on Nusa Lembongan, there are no helmets. Therefore I had a rather queasy feeling before I got on the scooter. I became friends with it slowly in the last weeks and I always wanted to ride with long clothes. Lightly dressed, without a helmet, and without a driving license, I went with the girls. Carefully we drove along the bumpy road along the coast, which brought us directly to Dream Beach.
