On the day we were scheduled to leave for the Gilli's we had to be at the bus stop by 6:45 so we ate a quick breakfast then left. The bus ride was OK, then we got onto a boat and it turned out the trip was quicker than they told us which was nice. After getting to Lombok we took a nice bus (one of the nicest transfers so far) to get a smaller boat which would take us to Trawangan. The whole trip took us about 9 hours but it wasn't too bad.

We walked around to a few hotels and got their prices and finally agreed to stay at a bungalow for around $10 a night, it was a nice little room up on stilts that had an outside bathroom. After we got settled we went walking around for somewhere to eat and to see what the island had to offer. We went to a couple of the dive companies to see what their prices are for our advanced diving and to see if they had any cheap rooms available, and we settled on Trawangan Dive. The next day we left our room and moved to Trawangan. We then rented two bicycles and rode around the island which took us about an hour or two even after having to push our bikes through some really sandy spots and after my (James') chain fell off which took a bit to get back on. When we got back to our hotel we scheduled for our diving the next day. I (James) spent the rest of the afternoon talking with some other Canadians at the swim up bar while Jackie was reading in the room because it was raining really bad.
