Priority: less stress and more fun


Early morning to go to work

Yesterday we watched the sun set, Anders and I. A beautiful sunset and I told him that I just seconds earlier had found myself thinking ‘next weekend I am going to enjoy the spring more’. Instantly my inner correction was ‘no! Today, enjoy life, beauty, love and nature today. Don’t wait!’.


A island of moss

After that, we watched the movie Bucket List again. That is a good movie, and it also is a nice way to remember what really is important.

So, let’s take care of the little things, remember to make a quick (or long) stop to enjoy a beautiful view, to let ourselves taste the good food and drinks, give someone a hug and simply live!


From Kuta to Amed


Rice fields along the road

The drive was a lot longer than we had thought and luckily we had a good driver and comfortable car to ride in.
It was so nice to see more than just city views during the way from Kuta to Amed here on Bali.


At the water temple

Kari, the driver, asked if we wanted to see a water temple and when we said yes he stopped at Taman Tirtagangga to show us around a bit.


Water garden below the temple

In many places it seems like the tourists only get to see parts of the temples or gardens, and traditional clothing is usually required. So we looked at the garden and the beauty of it, and then went on driving.


Stepping stones above the fish pond

Since we had some language difficulties, we didn’t get much information about the place as such but rather just enjoyed being there.


Welcome juice at our stay

We were very happy to come to our little inn where we’ll stay until Sunday. It’s right on the beach, quite simple and super friendly owners and staff. All of a sudden we were playing with the owners’ baby, and talking with the dog.


A coral reef just outside our stay

From our room it’s about 50 meters down to the water, and a bit further out the reef is ready to greet us when snorkling. The water here in the bay of Amed is warm. Really warm and one can lay down and relax floating without getting cold.


Sunset behind clouds and mountain

The sunset was beautiful to watch, and to sit on the beach at night, listening to live music in the dark was truly an awsome ending of the day.


Ready to sit down

We are so grateful for what we have and what we get to experience along our life, and for all the people we meet.

Until next time,
Anders and Wivan
