Just Out The Door-Balian

Local Bikie Gang hangin on the beach

The parties in Kuta for the past two months have been mind bending, in every way possible. And have definitely resulted in a solid need for some r’n’r around the island. Living next door to Kuta in Seminyak the options are endless. A short drive south is the Bukit Peninsular. A little drive due north takes me through the volcanoes and to the Git Git waterfalls. A couple of hours west are the surf villages of Balian and Medewi and if all that fails it takes about an hour and a half to hop over to the neighbouring island of Lembongan.

As I write this I am actually sitting next to a temple on the cliff at the northern end of Balian. It’s quite overcast with the threat of rain which I enjoy, the sun is shining through the clouds way out to the west and reveals the eastern point of Java, where I imagine the long left at G Land is probably pumping. The surf here isn’t really working with such a low tide diminishing what little swell there is and the onshore wind that seems to have followed the clouds destroying anything that makes it close enough to shore to break.

I love the serenity Bali has to offer in small pockets such as this. It keeps me sane and often helps me clear my head if I find myself thinking too much.

I first came up to Balian a few years ago now and it has changed dramatically with the rest of Bali. A little more than I would have hoped but since I am part of the influx of western society I cant really knock it.

The place is still beautiful though and here are some pictures of my current surroundings.

I will follow soon with pictures of the places previously mentioned and many more, to try to show you how ‘tough’ life is over here!!!
