Every picture tells a story. Well hold on, this one scared the hell out of me! If you've ever been to Nusa Penida, Bali, you probably went to Kelingking Beach; so did I.
After a heavy climb down -the road is rocky and very steep- the only thing you want to do, is rest. That's what my friend @demi_ver
and I did. After a while she suggested, knowing me very well, to climb one of the trees near the beach. It would be a great view and a cool picture. So, misses Spiderwoman -a.k.a. me- climbed up in that tree. The view was amazing! Meanwhile, our guide was waiting for us to return, so after a few minutes I decided to climb back down. Suddenly, I felt a horrible sting in my vinger. As I shouted, I saw a scorpio crawl away underneath my hand. Oh no! 🦂
I tried to ask the locals whether it was dangerous. Haha, I remember myself shouting: 'Am I going to die?!' The locals where laughing at me, so I figured it wouldn't be too bad. Still though, worried as I was, I climbed back up with ice in one hand and holding on to some ropes on the side of the road with the other. When I got back to our guide, he too started laughing. This scorpio wasn't dangerous at all. Hell, he got stung by it at least 7 times in one arm!
A couple of his tourguide friends out a ring around my finger with the Barong on it: 'This will protect you', I remember them saying. .
When did you panic on vacation/while travelling?
