How did i end up spending New Years Eve with a 50 yrs old German Diving instructor in Bali?

3 Jan

First, i wish you guys all Happy New Years! i hope you had a great start to the new year and set up some great resolutions.


Well, i had great plans for this New Years Eve but they didn’t realize. Destiny had some other plans for me .

  • Original plan: Fly from Singapore to Bali on the early morning of December 31st, meet my Couchsurfing host and settle down at his place. Then head out with my host to the beach to meet some polish travellers i met in the Philippines and celebrate new years eve together watching fireworks and then hitting some clubs.
  • What destiny planned for me: My CouchSurfing host cancelled on me 2 days before my arrival, i had to rush sending last minute requests and ended up having to stay with two different hosts since everyone else is busy during NYE. One host for my first night and another for the nights that follow. The host for the first night arranged to pick me up at the airport but to my surprise he forgot the time of my arrival, he thought i arrive the day after. Continue reading

Great Sunset View at Maremegmeg Beach

When i first arrived to my Hostel in Elnido, it was around 4pm. I was really exhausted after the 7hours bumpy the bus ride from Puerto Puerto Princesa, and  just wanted to jump into the sea and relax on the beach. I was with a guy i met when CouchSurfing in Puerto Princesa and he ended up takign the same bus as me to Elnido and staying at the same hostel. We asked the hostel manager about the nearest beach we can go to and she recommended going to Maremegmeg beach. She told us that it has the best sunset view in Elnido so we decided to head there.

We arrived a bit before the sunset so we enjoyed a quick swim in crystal clear water. The beach was not very crowded which i really appreciated. There are also two resorts at the beach so you can head up to their bar and get something to drink or eat. If i had more time in Elnido, i would definitely come spend a whole day relaxing at this beach.  Continue reading
