Lombok, Indonesia: Part 2

Continuing with our Lombok vacation we spent some a lot of our time relaxing. Our relaxing vacation included reading, sleeping, eating, and drinking!

Most mornings we at our breakfast ocean side. It was an awesome view!IMG_0004_2 IMG_5756 IMG_5759 IMG_5978

Each evening there was a Happy Hour from 5-7 with buy one get one free special. We frequented this daily. Taylor’s drink of choice was a Singapore Sling and I often got a pineapple mojito. The drinks were made using super fresh fruit that was squeezed. They were tasty!IMG_5846 IMG_5847

One night, there was a large beach BBQ for dinner. We had a nice table set up ocean side and had a lovely meal.

I frequented the spa often and Taylor even enjoyed a treatment. I started with a  manicure and pedicure, Taylor and I both got a Balinese messages, and then on the last day before we left I also got another Balinese message along with a body scrub. One day I got a massage on the beach for $10. It was not as good at the spa on the property but for $10 you couldn’t beat that price!IMG_0015_2IMG_5781

One morning I took a cooking class and learned how to prepare traditional Indonesian cuisine. It was exciting to learn with the chefs and get a sneak peak behind the scenes of the resort. I really enjoyed the class partially because was the only student plus it only cost $35, we got to eat all the food I cooked for lunch and I got an apron to keep! I prepared Nasi goreng Idgo, Sumatra Udang Balado, Sambai Banteng Ngangak, Beef Rendang, Peanut Sauce, Soto Lamongan, Sambai Laos, Sambai Tersai Bakar.IMG_6039 IMG_6040 IMG_6041 IMG_6042IMG_6044IMG_6043Taylor took some surf lessons on the beach. It cost $20 for as long as he wanted to go. He was pretty impressive and got up on the first try!IMG_6052IMG_6065IMG_6186IMG_6168In Lombok, we bought a few souvenirs home with us. I bought beach wraps from the ladies selling on the beach. They carried the stack around on their heads, it was so cool. We also went in to the closest town for about an hour and bought some artistic pieces to bring back like a wall wood carving, a large wooden bowl, a statue, etc. There were a lot of cool pieces, but we need to be able to bring it back in our luggage! IMG_6248That about rounds our our Lombok vacation! Hope you enjoyed!
