Thanks to a last minute invitation to stay at a friends new villa on the island of Nusa Lembongan, my family and I packed our super light backpacks and had a spontaneous family adventure. We caught the ferry for $50 return from mainland Bali to Nusa Lembognan, not having researched where we were heading at all. The villa itself was incredible, nestled amongst the trees on top of the mountain with views out over the sea towards Bali’s volcano’s.  With barely any time there we still managed to not only relax, but also see a traditional Balinese funeral and cremation, the crystal clear waters while snorkelling from a boat, and getting around on bikes without feeling unsafe. I had originally planned to try and see the Gili islands this visit to Bali, but a change of plans made an unexpected discovery of this paradise.
