The ferry crossing from Lombok to Bali was one of the easiest I’ve ever done – arrive, pay at the kiosk without even getting off the bike, and ride straight on – heaven! No-one can say they don’t like Bali – I think it has the best beaches in all of Indonesia, even though you have to work hard to find some that aren’t rammed with people.
Bali – the best beaches in Indonesia, and maybe the world
And if you don’t like the beaches, there are temples everywhere!
Fancy a tree-house hotel?

The fantastic team at the John Fawcett Foundation – providing cataract operations to the poor for free
I’d met Leroy and team in Sumbawa and they invited me along to visit their main clinic in Bali when I arrived. I was lucky enough to get to watch a cataract operation – incredible! The surgeon was like an artist – incredibly steady hands, taking 12 mins to give someone the gift of sight
Bali – you have to love it
Another very efficient ferry service on the very short hop-over to Java
