It was time to move on from the Nusa Islands, we had plans to go to Lombok and the famous Gili Islands from there, but first we would go back to Bali by public ferry and go to Ubud. Ubud is famous for being used as a setting in the book and subsequent film; Eat, Pray, Love.
We set off from Nusa Penida early morning, rode the bike down to the harbour and the owner of the bungalows came with us again to carry our bags and bring the bike back afterwards. The local boat was a big ferry and would only take an hour to get to Padangbai in Bali, we were on our way.
We got chatting to some locals and the boat was good, decent seats on an outside covered deck area, and it did only take an hour to get there. Plus an extra two and a half hours sat on the boat just outside the port waiting to dock up in a queue of other ferries.
