I’ve landed in paradise!
A Robinson Crusoe-style white-sand island with thatched huts, no motorized vehicles, crystal-clear aquamarine seas, a fringing coral reef, ‘restaurants’ on sand and very few people.
At Gili Meno I’m simply surrounded by the soothing sounds of nature: gentle waves lapping the shore, a distant roaring ocean, wind rushing through pines and palms, birds, insects, cows, roosters and goats.
Ponies & carts (cidomo) provide Gili Meno’s only transportation. Their jingling bells warn of their slow aproach along the island’s sand roads.
Powdery-white sand beaches rim the entire island. Just offshore, below the glassy sea, are extensive coral reefs full of colorful marine fish and sea turtles.
Helpfully, Gili Meno offers a few modern ‘necessities’: electricity, internet access, and espresso coffee. That’s all I need!
To top it off, Meno has plenty of my favorite of all creatures: cats!
My perfect paradise, I do believe.
