Oh Gambia. You were very depressing to visit. Was it because of the never-ending trucks filled with sand all on their way to an unpermitted construction project being built by foreigners? My host tried to protest the coastal erosion to no avail. You were too short-sighted and placed short-term profit above all. Was it the border patrol on the way in that harassed and detained me for having two passports? Or the fact that every few minutes I saw an older white woman holding hands with a young Gambian man? It was so obvious to me what Gambian men are after with European women but my host reminded me--"don't be so quick to judge. I was unlucky with love all my life, and suddenly a man online tells you he loves you and you believe it. I certainly did." I couldn't believe her stories of abuse and that the police wouldn't arrest her Gambian husband unless he hospitalized her for at least a week. A simple beating and hospital visit was not enough. And when he did nearly kill her, the police came, ripped all his clothes off and then beat him. He took all her savings and the property he convinced her to buy in his name shortly after he got a European passport. Was it the "Wash your hands. No Ebola." signs on the road? And the spelling errors on signs even though English is the national language. The ex-president that emptied the government bank accounts, loaded all the cash and gold onto his private plane and flew to Equatorial Guinea after losing the election? They are still finding abandoned luxury cars in the jungle that he didn't have enough time to ship. Was it because the electricity shut off every 10 minutes or so at the airport? Was it because when I flew to London and my carry-on bag was over the weight limit, the attendant motioned for me to go to the side, waited for everyone to leave, and then asked me how much I would give him? And then when I said I was just a student--please be understanding--he said "remember my face and give me something the next time you visit." Ugh. Maybe it was a bit of everything.

If our minds are in the past or future then we are not truly ALIVE in the PRESENT." ~Satsuki Shibuya💓
Life can get kinda fast sometimes.
So much to do, so little time... ever heard or even SAID those words before?
Remember to stop now and then... take it all in... and enjoy what you have... enjoy where you are... & appreciate who's a part of your life.
Start now & see how easy it suddenly becomes to breathe.
Start now before it's too late. 🙌

Mainz is small and cozy city in Germany. The streets are quiet and peaceful. I stayed in this place 7 days So, I stopped the trip for a while and stayed there resting there. It was great time to me because I'm little bit tired because I moved in a tight schedule. So I was able to relax and recharge the energy there.

Awal Mei lalu sy ke Bali dan nyebrang ke Nusa Penida via Sanur naik kapal cepat. Waktu itu cuma daytrip aja sore balik lg ke Bali, jd cuma mengagendakan ke Kelingking Beach krn cukup jauh dan medannya challenging, takut ga cukup waktunya.
Ternyata kami masih sempet mengunjungi satu spot pantai lg, krn letaknya ga begitu jauh dari pelabuhan, namanya Crystal Bay . Pantainya cantiikk, cukup bersih.. pasir dan pantainya berkilau2 mgkn krn itu dikasih nama Crystal Bay..*sotoy 😆 ...Di sini rame turis bule lg pd berjemur.. 😎 Katanya di pantai ini jg banyak spot buat snorkeling dan diving, yah mgkn next time.
Pingin sedikit share buat yg mau ke Nusa Penida :
- klo cuma berdua dan lihai bawa motor, mending sewa motor 75rb/seharian tp siap2 panas dan terguncang2 krn sebagian ruas jalannya jelek (bgt) dan cukup berkelok2. .
- pilihan kedua sewa mobil aplg klo rame2 dan budget nya cukup. Klo ga salah 400rb/hr. .
- Kelingking Beach recommended bgttt viewnya masyaAllah bagus bgt, sila googling atau liat postingan sy bbrp waktu lalu - klo waktunya sedikit, Kelingking Beach terpaksa skip ya mending ke crystal bay aja main2 renang2 di pantai.
- sy pribadi lebih suka Nusa Lembongan drpd Nusa Penida tp both islands offer great experience ❣️❣️❣️ .
Sekian cerita sy hari ini, semoga semangat menghadapi Senin pertama anak masuk sekolaahh yaaa 😆😆✊ _____
