I have a long love affair with Bali, Indonesia. I try to get to visit at least once a year. My dear friend Frank, lives in Jakarta and we plan this annual August escape to the island. There is so much to love about Bali. There is truly something for everyone. Each year that I visit, something new and exciting sprouts up and I am often left impressed and inspired and invigorated.
I was in dire need of an escape and this trip came in a perfect time. September and August are the best times to go to Bali because the weather is fantastic, like Christmas in Manila. Clear cloudless skies and cool evenings. I was really happy to be here.
My next entries will all be about my old favorites and new discoveries. Nix and I planned this trip more than 3 months ago and was able to purchase a promo ticket on PAL for 190US$ to Jakarta !!!! I love flying PAL! I do hope and pray that they will be able to fix their problems. It would be so unfortunate if they collapse.
We took a morning flight to Bali and stayed at the Residence Seminyak. I love the location of the Villa as it is quite central. I also think that value for money, it is one of the best deals in town. We headed out for some lunch at one of my favorite Greek tavernas in the Seminyak area called Mykonos. I love eating there as it is consistently good. They have arguably the best lamb chops in town. We tried to get tickets for the 10th year anniversary party in KUDETA but we all thought that the 142US$ price tag for entry ( with out any drinks) was a bit much and turned our group off! I can think of many, many things that I can spend 142US$ in Bali with. LOL!
This entry is about what we did for the first 10 hours. I wish that all my friends were with us!
