Bali’s memories: Fishing for pictures and friends in Sanur
Sanur is a cosy, little town which lies quietly along Bali’s south-eastern coast close to Denpasar. With the popular Kuta-Legian-Seminyak triangle and the beautiful Bukit peninsula not too far away, Sanur is the perfect place to be if you want to enjoy a peaceful and not-too-touristy-Bali while being close to the action. This is one of the main reasons why we chose to spend there the last part of our stay in the island before leaving for Australia.
While Sanur’s beach may not be the best beach ever – in fact we never got to swim there, to be honest – we found it so photogenic that we kept coming back with our camera, especially at dawn or at the end of the day.
As I was flicking through my pictures of Sanur as in a sort of stroll down memory lane I thought I’d make a post and share a selection of those shots. From a very high-level perspective, some of the images are pretty much unrelated and only just attempt to convey a very general sense of place, although other pictures in the set focus on the fishermen who populate the beach from the early hours of the morning.
As usual I’ll use the captions to tell the story behind the pictures and to make my comments.
Our memories of Bali include also our fairly intense social life in Sanur. In fact, I want to dedicate this post and the pictures to the people we’ve met there who made our stay special:
Samantha and Stuart, the minds behind Travelfish.org – Travelfish has helped us so much during our trip to SE Asia. Thank you!
Audrey and Daniel, ms. and mr. Uncornered Market themselves- in the travel blogosphere you don’t need any introduction. Guys, you are a great inspiration!
Emoke, friend of a friend who met us and provided an insight on how living in Bali is like. We loved meeting you and who knows, maybe we’ll join you one day!
Leming, the fisherman in Sanur’s beach – I hope you enjoy the pictures and thank you for being so nice and commenting on one of our last posts 🙂
Angga and the other guys from the Balindo Paradiso Crew who helped us in Merta Sari, when we stole a motorbike without even knowing it 🙂 It’s a pity that we didn’t get to drink Arak together. I wish you all the best for the future and a great career in the cruise industry. Your knowledge of Italian and Portuguese amazed us 🙂
May our paths cross again!
