Lombok another island in the sun

I have a long standing and continuing connection with this island.

Lombok is somewhat less tourist dominated than south Bali,tho it seems to want to progress in the same direction. And in some ways who can dispute that. Sengiggi is busy squeezing in as many new accomodations¬† as it can. Its busy and noisy hot and dry. I did stay one night in Sengiggi and that was enough! I was lucky enough to find accomodation in Mangsit that was just affordable….mostly its well out of the¬† range of those travelling on a budget.

Arriving at the airport which is now very far away from Mataram and Sengiggi. It is a sharp contrast to Bali.
