Since I’ve been back from an epic vacation with friends to Bali, the first question I get is, “how was your trip?” I have started answering “lame” or something similar, because I got tired of repeating “amazing.” Who goes to Bali and has a lame experience? Not me! I guess it helps that I was with cool people. Traveling as a group can be challenging, but we were all pretty awesome, so it flowed well. Four of us came from Guam, traveled through Manila then to Bali. A couple people flew from California and Washington, and then we met some of Mo’s (who also had lived in Bali for awhile, and traveled there a lot) friends in Bali. Shoutout to Les, Adi, and Ketut for all their help and amazing company, and to Suan and his family for hosting us at their beautiful villa. We love you guys!
We treated ourselves to massages, great food, drink, and exploring. We stayed in a gorgeous 5 bedroom Bali-style villa in Kuta, then we drove up to North Bali, to Lovina, and into the mountain villages like Singaraja, and into Sekumpul, where we went to the most beautiful waterfall I’ve ever seen. So powerful. And healing. We also stayed in Kintamani, at Suan’s beautiful villa overlooking Mount Batur, an active volcano with hot springs surrounding. We visited the Batur temple there as well. It was incredible.
I’ll let the million photos to follow do the rest of the talking. (First few pics are from Guam, and then our stop in Manila).
