Thetraveljunkie.org – When we stayed in Gili Trawangan Island we organised a snorkeling trip around Gili Meno Island. It was a totally incredible experience – amazing to see all the different creatures that call the sea home.
As my eyes slowly got used to the underwater light, I looked around and there were fish everywhere! I have no idea what they were called. They were swimming happily, around us, and between all the people in the water. Then I looked down and saw these larger fish dawdling along the deep sea. They were so pretty.
And as I moved closer and closer to the reef, I saw the little details start to emerge… crabs, little fish, shells and seaweed dancing and swaying in the water. And I free dived down, deep into the water for some turtles and sharks.

Sunlight streaming down, between bubbles, between floating in things in the water. It was so peaceful to bob up and down in the water, be still, and watch all the LIFE surrounding me.
Just a note, if you are thinking of coming please leave no trash behind. And take with only memories, photos and videos.
