Back from a whirlwind trip to Bali! In typical Blanton fashion, Barr and I scheduled a last minute trip to Bali last [long] weekend. While I with absolute certainty can say that I didn’t “need” a vacation so soon on the heels of the South Australia adventures, my beleaguered husband sure did. Of course I was more than happy to accompany him 😉
I wish I had some fun insights into our four day trip to Bali, but unfortunately for any folks looking to travel to Bali, we didnt do anything too over the top exciting – sleep, rest, and relaxation was on the top of the priority list this time around – so no tours or big plans (blasphemy, I know!) We stayed in a quiet little hotel in Legian, Bali – in between party-haven Kuta and shopping-haven Seminyak.
- Dinner at Sardine – WOW! This place was magnificent – the combination of the delicious seafood and fresh, organic produce (not to mention TDF cocktails) with the exquisite views of a quiet rice paddy made Sardine a special place for us.
- Visit to Panang Panang beach
- Viewing the sunset on Uluwatu Temple
Though we returned on the red eye (which always seems like a great idea when you’re purchasing a plane ticket, but the worst idea when you’re preparing to board/actually on/disembarking), we returned refreshed, well rested, and hopefully, a bit tanner – we’ve missed the Dubai heat and sun (though maybe not the 136F temps they’re currently feeling!)
For now, back to the grind and reality! Until next time…
