We visited the 3 famous Gili islands. Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air. We booked our whole trip to the islands, which included a speed boat, snorkeling equipment, transport thru and fro from the Living Asia Resort and Spa and 2 guides for Rp1.35 million/4people. *yeap! we were millionaires few weeks ago*
When we reached the beach, where our speed boat was waiting. We get to choose our flippers and googles before getting on the boat. There were 2 guides with us, one steering the boat, and one that guides us to beautiful snorkeling sites and also the SOS guy. Sitting on a speed boat was exhilarating and scary at the same time.

The guide brought us to snorkle at 3 different spots. At the first one, we were in super clear waters with lots of beautiful fishies. We had bread to feed them, so they got real close but our snorkeling session didn't last very long. We were kind of attacked by jelly fishies. i did my breaststroke swimming, and was stung on both my hands. My bad, should have kept my hands to myself. learnt me lesson. ;P The second snorkeling spot, the water was real choppy. BUT we saw a sea turtle. YES! im so happy. I thought only deep sea divers get that pleasure. We kind of chased it and scared it
abit alot. Third sport was awesome, rain started pouring but it didn't stop us, water was calm, and we just swam and enjoyed the scenery.
After snorkeling, we were brought to Gili Trawangan for lunch. We did a little exploring too :)
