Lombok, Indonesia: Part 1

For the Christmas holiday Taylor and I traveled to Lombok, Indonesia for a relaxing six day break. Lombok is about a two and a half hour direct flight from Singapore. Here is where it is located on a map(blue dot.)IMG_0021_2We stayed at a resort named Qunci Villas near the town of Senggigi. We really enjoyed staying here and only left the property once to do a little shopping. They had three resturants that served really good food, three large pools, and a spa. We really didn’t need much more that that!

The property had some great artistic pieces, here are some examples of things that were spread throughout. IMG_5768 IMG_5769 IMG_5778 IMG_5779 IMG_5795

The first few days we had a bunch of rain which was a bummer, but it did not deter of from relaxing one bit. Finally, on Christmas Day the sun was out and it was beautiful the rest of the week. It was sad not spending the holiday with our families and our usual traditions. There was a large Christmas Eve set menu dinner, but we did not take part in it because we did not like the food that was being offered(venison, fish and something else we wouldn’t eat) and ended up going to one of the restaurants for their regular menu. It was a pretty low key Christmas talking with family via FaceTime(we love technology!), sitting by the pool and ending with dinner and a nice sunset. We ended up having Asian food for our Christmas dinner, it was pretty tasty, but we missed our traditional  favorite meals with our families!

To round out today’s post, I’ll leave you with some pictures of the amazing sunsets we saw. In these pictures, Bali is the island that you can see. Next week, I’ll post more about the food we ate and the really fun activities that we did!
