We spent 4 days diving with Scuba Junkie Sangalaki on Indonesian Borneo’s “Derawan islands” and I can’t even begin to express how special this area is. I love following their story on social media as they are always posting about new wildlife they have encountered; from hammerheads and oceanic mantas, to dugongs and pygmy seahorses.
That time when we stayed in an over-the-water bungalow for less than $100 per night!
My Mum and Dad have recently booked a holiday to the Maldives (so jealous!) and whilst we were admiring, and looking gob-smacked, at the outrageous prices of the over-the-water bungalows, it reminded me just how lucky we were on our recent trip to Borneo.

Recommendations in Seminyak
Our Bali adventure started in Seminyak which is fairly close to Kuta, on the West Coast of Bali. Both destinations are now very popular tourist destinations, although Kuta has been described as similar to Benidorm whilst Seminyak has a slightly more upmarket reputation. There are LOADS of hotels to choose from in Seminyak ranging from
