One of the things I look forward to each year is the opportunity to go travelling and experience something new. Last November my partner and I booked a last minute trip to Bali as a getaway prior to attending our friends’ wedding overseas.
The water is clear, the sand is warm, and there’s plenty of good food to satisfy any hunger pangs. Bali is a relaxing place to go for a holiday.
Jimbaran, where you go to see the sunset by the beach.
Lots to observe, like the daily offerings placed by the locals and did I mention how much good food you can sample here?
Tanah Lot, a temple carved into the stone by the sea.
The best way to experience a place is to interact with the locals. We tried a lot of local fare and our taxi drivers were more than happy to tell us about themselves, the culture and life in Bali.
We also stayed in some gorgeous resorts and I managed to get some time to read as well.
Gold and green rice paddy fields.
Here we have the Kecak dance in Uluwatu. There are no instruments, just the participants providing music and percussion using their voices. I love how it ends in dramatic fashion as seen below.
So here are just some snippets of our short trip to Bali, a place I’d love to visit again and having done the touristy stuff, I’d just like to sit back and relax the next time I’m here.
