Ahhhhhhh Bali

At last I can get to my blog and at last I am back in beautiful Bali. Our flights here were great, no problems considering that the day before most flights had been rescheduled due to volcanic activity from Mount Merapi in Indonesia. But we got here after our 4 hour flight from Melbourne to Darwin and then after about an hour stopover we then headed on our 2 hour flight to Denpasar, Bali. As I mentioned last time this is my 4th visit here and I still love it as much, if not more from my first visit. I love the peacefulness, the hustle and bustle of people trying to sell you something, the weather (as long as you have a pool close by}, the smells (some are a little bit challenging), the sights, the bargains and of course the people, they all have a smile even when they are not trying to get money out of you.  Yesterday we just did our first little venture shopping in Seminyak - just have to get back into the swing of bargaining, which might I add I am not very good at, I keep forgetting what my last price was!! Alice, Melissa and myself also went and had our feet chewed - sucked on - cleaned (what ever you would like to call it) by some "Garupa Fish". It was a very weird sensation, sort of like puutting you legs in a big tank of bubbling soda water. The accommodation we are staying at is called "The Villas Hotel & Spa - Seminyak and has to be the most beautiful place I have ever stayed. The shot on the opening page is our villa. We have a 3 bedroom villa with our own pool and chef that comes and cooks our breakfast each morning. I will try and attach their link and some photos but no photos can do it justice. It is absolutely amazing. This morning we are of to have a massage and then I am going to check out some wholesales for my jewellery and maybe get some batik fabric. Oh I do love it here. So for now Salamat Jalan.
