Nusa Lembongan finally offered the peaceful sanctuary I was looking for. Just a short boat trip away from the hustle and bustle of Bali's mainland, Lembongan feels like what Bali must have once been like: untouched, overgrown, rural and incredibly peaceful. It was fairly uncrowded and some parts of the island felt almost undiscovered (which they of course aren't, but one can pretend right). The waves were super consistent and playful and every now and then we snuck in a surf with only three others out. I both surfed and read excessively and snapped some of these pics in between.
