Eind september komen wij aan bij Gili Air, een klein eilandje voor de kust van Lombok. Mijn man en ik zijn op wereldreis met onze zeilboot NOK en zijn inmiddels in Indonesië aanbeland. Langzaam weer onderweg naar Nederland. Op de website van dewereldwijven.com heb ik gelezen over wereldwijf Rose, die op Gili Air interessante dingen doet. Daar wil ik meer van weten. Vandaar dat we ons anker bij Gili Air in de grond gooien en haar opzoeken.
