After relaxing for a few days we decided to take a day trip. We hired a scooter to go and check out the rest of the island. We headed off thinking it would be a short ride there. 45 minutes and a numb bum later we arrived at the hot springs of Samosir Island. Well what can we say...not much. Guide books and people in town highly recommended us to go and see this attraction. Our experience: On arrival is the awful smell of sulphur from the springs, all the water from the hot springs is diverted into makeshift pools by the locals (which you have to pay to swim in-why? I don't know because the thought of smelling like arse didn't appeal to either of us) the pools would go down a treat in Parys! In terms of aesthetics, the place looks like a run down old quarry. We deceided to have a drink at a cafe there and the old lady was too lazy and busy cliiping her toenails to give us a menu. She shouted from her chair "DRINKS, SPRITE, EATING". We stayed there probably a total of 20 minutes and then left! Back on the scooter we went to check out some views of the lake but apparently didn't go all the way to the top. It was still a cool place. To chill...not for the hot springs.
