The very first thing we did after got out from the hotel was filling up our stomach. There’s this Warung Mina located just opposite our hotel looks pretty decent yet very authentic Balinese feels.

My fried fish fillets ordered kinda surprise when served as you can see, the fillets came with the body where they were taken from. It was very fresh and yummy.

Yuki ordered fried calamari with special Balinese sauce which was a bit spicy, sweet and sour hence very delightful to the taste buds.

We checkout from the hotel and left our main luggage at the hotel and proceed to the very 1st destination. The iconic Tanah Lot. You know it’s Bali once you see this temple.

Due to budget restraint, motorbike was how the road trip begun.  It’s not entirely a cost factor but more towards the fun factor. With no GPS devices, we got a local Prepaid SIM Card for Google map direction. It’s good enough to show direction but unfortunately, our location cursor didn’t move as we did. Ended up, we went into all the surrounding villages and found a surf beach with black sparkling sand which is burning hot from the sun.

Hardly see any of them stand & surf properly on the surfboard

Journey continues venturing into villages (lost our way) before we manage to reach this famous 15th century’s temple. This add in the adventurous factor isn’t in? Finally, we made it to Tanah Lot at 3.30pm after riding for an hour or two.

We left just before the sun is fully set as we need to return the motorbike on 8pm. We follow all those tour MPV and buses plus asking around the local as we ride, we managed to reach our hotel just 5mins before 8.

Before depart to Ubud, where the next 2 days we will be, we had our dinner at somewhere nearby the hotel. This Nasi Bali Restaurant’s food was amazingly delicious. If you so happened to see this place when you are at Bali, please dine in.

After dinner, we took Taxi and arrived Ubud around 10.30pm which cost us Rupiah 200k. Average speed, 40kmh. Seriously slow.
