Bali, Indonesia

So firstly, apologies that I've been silent for so long! I've just started my 7 week jolly around south east Asia. I don't really know what to call it - I don't really feel like I'm doing the full blown travelling thing (let's face it, I am not backpacker material) but it is longer, and slightly less comfortable, than a holiday. 

Our first stop is Bali. It's just Becca and I at the moment, Kat and Kate are flying down from Hong Kong later tonight. It's a small island, I've been told you can drive round the coast in a day but so far we've stayed in the south, exploring Kuta, Legian, Seminyak and Sanur. I am not so keen on heat (Asia may be an odd choice you might say) so the sunny mornings and overcast afternoons (about 30c) have been a perfect mix for me. We've mainly spent the mornings lazing around on the beach and getting over jet lag and the afternoons wandering around the little  'gangs' (side streets to you and I) seeing what the various market stalls have to offer. 

Traffic is a nightmare and persistent hawkers the bane of my life but so far Bali is a perfect place to sit back and relax. Although billed as the 'vulgar Oz ghetto not actually found in Australia', southern Bali is definitely not a place to pass by - rooms for under £10 and beers for a mere £1.30 why would you say no?! x


  1. Ahh I went to Bali a few years ago on holiday with my family and it was absolutely lovely! Didn't do it backpacker style, but still had an amazing time =)

  2. I LOVE that you aren't calling it "travelling". Have an exceptional time, I'm not jealous in the slightest (lies)... but then I'll be out in Thailand in a month! Woo hoo! xx
