Motor biking in Amed
Motor bike, where have you been my whole life. For the first time ever I feel this freedom to travel and see whatever whenever, with no taxi, tour guide and it just feels awesome!
We met a couple from Montreal, Canada, Gerry and Louisa. Gerry let me try out the motorbike for 5 mins to learn and I was immediately hooked. The next day we rented one and after I felt ready and confident, my baby hopped on and we set off south. We saw many more beaches and small villages and were awed by the whole experience. Riding together, we were so happy. We also stopped to take photos anytime we wanted.
The next day we headed North with our local friend Gede. He took us to his home to meet his family. The ride getting there was again so awesome. We rode through small coastal towns and lush green fields. We stopped on the way to pick up some delicious chicken soup called Bakso, which we took to go and at his home. It was such a great experience to meet his family and learn more about local culture. When we left he took us to a few rice fields nearby which we got off and walked around a little. After, we said our good byes we made our way back to Bunutan. We stopped a few times and saw some amazing views of the sunset. There is really nothing like this place and no better way to see it.
I am sure where ever we go now, we will look for a motorbike option. I know places are a bit more hectic and I am reluctant to ride in a big city, but as soon as we find that chance again, that is the way to do it.
