I arrived back in Bali early Wednesday morning after nearly 40 hours of traveling via boat, car, and plane. My 8-day journey included nearly four days of travel. I flew out of Bali on Wednesday morning and arrive in Padang at 9 PM after two delayed flights. The next day was spent traipsing around Padang, doing a bit of shopping, and waiting for the ferry; an 11-hour journey that arrived in Padang early Thursday morning. I strung up my hammock on the deck and had a nice sleep until a passing tropical storm forced me to move under cover.
