Upon reaching Gili Air it wasn’t like the distinguished characteristics of an island. It was surprisingly full of electronics and adult-party ‘goods’. Gili Air is one of the three Gili islands located in Lombok. By an interview from the island’s head manager representatives, they said it was known as Gili Sassi and is recognized for its half urban half rural atmosphere. As I stepped onto the light beige colored sand, I could feel the warm love, the soft sand gently touched my feet as I trotted through the untainted colors that made the sand look healthy. Under these circumstances I overheard the provocative music played in what seems to be an open bar.

Among the shes, the most extraordinary species was the turtle, supposing classied as endangered the turtles are commonly found in a dive site called ‘Turtle Heaven’ alive and healthy. Although sound travels faster underwater making it distorted, I could hear moans from somewhere around me every time I make a mistake. Wait…I’m in a island? I’m pretty sure this is a hotel The never endin blue ecos stem is mixed with the vast colors of sea life. Censored The swa rocked me side to side, ust like a cradle
