It has been a long long while since our last dive in Sydney. Although we are dying to get back into the sea this trip is a huge challenge coz we are bringing Etienne with us.

Our plan route in Bali - looks ambitious with a 8+ months old baby right? We drove straight into Denpasar for baby supplies when we arrive.

This trip is plan with Anthony & Nicole xoxoxo

Etienne fall from the couch just a few day earlier & got a deep cut at the corner of his right eye but he is well and happy to take off.

After SYD-Darwin-Denpasar flight & 4.5 hours of driving, we arrive at Tulamben Dive Resort. Oh! the little guy in the sea behind is catching fish for the restaurant we think.

Life in Tulamben. The Bakso cart never fail to materialize at the same time everyday - Yummy xoxoxo

Resort came with a kitchen so Etienne can still have his porridge. In fact he has very expensive porridge (blended Japan dry mussels AUD120/kg - with round beans)

Etienne 1st babysitter

Basically all the resort staffs play & babysit him daily beside the permanent one we hired - we are lucky :)

So we can gear up & GO!

Christophe is very happy to jump in too.


eat….dive….yeah, this is life

It gets bumpy sometimes

and resulted a big mess of tangled hair too but hey who cares as long as you are happy doing what you want to do

We celebrated Anthony's XX yrs old birthday @ Mimpi Resort restaurant; Tulamben.

His birthday wish is to be able to ride a bike - soon….

We wish him a Happy Birthday & may all his wishes come true

We move on to north Bali to dive in Secret Bay but stayed at Pemuteraan.

Stop at Lovina for lunch on the way and played some traditional Balinese music. Erhm….unfortunately not to Etienne's taste, maybe Timothee can do better.

Pemuteraan. We are thinking to go back there to do some beach dive, apparently there are plenty of stuff to see.

Babysitter in Pemuteraan. We realized the whole village (at the side of the resort) babysat him while we are gone. Babysitting in Bali is really more than what you pay.

Plus 2 more volunteers :)

Gear up for Secret Bay at Gilimanuk.

We didn't expect it to be so cold down there but it is an interesting site nevertheless.

Survive the cold

Good food after

And while we are gone, Etienne has a whole village to play with so he looks really happy too.

Etienne gets to play with Uncle Anthony & Auntie Nicole for 6 days in a row

Plus he gets into a big bathtub with mum & dad so not a bad deal after all.
