We’re heading to Bali mid next year & I am very excited! Hubby & I have not been away (sans kids) since the having of them – which by then will be 8 yrs ago. As far as I’m concerned we never really had a ‘proper’ honeymoon, & certainly no babymoons – so I figure we owe ourselves a little trip. It’s only proper wouldn’t you say?
There’s a problem. I have been all over the internet looking up accommodation & I am completely overwhelmed by the sheer choice! Villa? Boutique Hotel? Swanky resort? Beach? Laneway? Poolbar – these are still popular surely? I have been asking everyone what they think & thus far it’s been absolutely no help & I am more confused than ever! I’m pinning some hope on Little Miss Bali who run a great facebook page chock full of all things Bali – what a great idea!
There’s another problem. Being born under the Taurus star sign, I tend to lean very heavily towards the absolutely sublime gorgeous-ness of all things very fancy & completely outrageously expensive… it’s a curse! The reality of my situation is certainly a fair few rungs below what that Taurean heart of mine might desire & that’s just fine really, if I could just stop clicking on places like this one:
Should I continue? It’s just a tad too fancy isn’t it, but look at all that wood…
Well probably that’s just about enough of that! You understand my problem (albeit minor) right? Once upon a time I travelled to Bali when I was a Travel Consultant & well I think it would be fair to say that Bali has gone & changed a whole lot since I was there back in – oh let’s see – hummm – ’95.
I don’t need to make a decision on this until next year, but with so much choice, I’m really glad I’ve started looking a whole year in advance! If you’ve been to Bali (Seminyak to be precise) & have any great tips on where to stay, I’d love to hear it – it might even make it onto my short list! I’ll keep you posted.
October 12th 2012 marks the 10th anniversary of the Bali terrorist attacks that killed 88 Australians & a further 114 people from across the world & left countless others with life long injuries & scars to remember that day by. Today we remember all of those people.
