I am now back from my trip to Indonesia, which was incredible. I absolutely loved it there. The people are so warm and gracious and the Balinese culture is beautiful. They love to celebrate life and do so at every chance that they get... even if that means stopping traffic for a parade or festival - or stopping all work on the whole island for a full day (imagine if we did that in western culture!).
The island is absolutely perfect for holiday travel as well. Most people speak English, there is a wealth of great restaurants and the list of things to do was endless. There are many interesting temples and historical sites, amazing dance and cultural shows, and lots of activities such as volcano trekking, scuba diving and snorkeling, and white water rafting. I was travelling solo, which is not something I have done much of, and it was extremely easy to get around and I felt very safe. Plus, its quite inexpensive, with most of my hotels averaging around $20/ night - including breakfast. Do I sound like an advertisement for Bali or what?
Anyway, here are a few pics of my trip:
