On my last day in Bali I got up early and sat by the pool with the intention of writing something extraordinary to sum up the trip. I had no idea where to start. This trip has exceeded my expectations in just about every possible way and I will always remember it as my first real off-continent travel adventure. Cheers to Bali!
An amazing trip to a temple with 1000 stairs where we met a priest who presented us with a special blessing and told us of his visit to the States and to Seattle. After leaving we found locals at every corner pointing us the way back home. Things like this just don’t happen by accident do they?
We’ve now developed a new recreational love here in Bali: scootering! It’s such a fantastic and cheap way to get out, see the island, and have a blast! We also enjoyed our own little mini version of the Discovery Channel by snorkeling in the fantastic reef just off the shore of our bungalow.
Today Jo taught me the fine art of bartering and negotiation during a long day of shopping and sightseeing. Afterwards we enjoyed a hilarious stroll through the Monkey Forest and considered it a success as none of the nasty little creatures managed to hitch a ride home with us. We finished up the day with a birthday celebration for Joya!
