Sunday Snapshot: Horses in Gili Trawangan

Posted By in Indonesia, Travel Photography | 6 comments

Today’s Sunday Snapshot of Gili Trawangan comes from Bonnie and Josh, the two halves that make up Wild Buttercup. He’s a Californian boy, she’s a Kiwi girl. They met in Indonesia, and together they love to take photos (Josh) and write stories (Bonnie) as they travel the world.

Men and horses, Gili Trawangan

 

“We went for a walk along the path that goes right around the entire island. At one point, we decided to head further down the beach. There, we saw men washing their horses in the surf. Motorised vehicles of any kind are illegal on the Gili islands, so horses are important here, and the closeness between these men and their horses was very evident.”

      Same here, Ashley! And something about seeing the horses out in the open ocean makes it seem like they still have some freedom and wildness, which is kind of lovely.
