Only 6 weeks late, the finale to the Bali trip. So where did I leave off in the last post? Oh yes, I had throughoutly recounted our first day and impressions. After that first day, we were feeling a bit run down so we decided to scale back the pace quite a lot.
We ate more unusual fruit.
We relaxed poolside (not pictured.) I got a lot of incredibly cheap massages. (also not pictured)
We went to a 'cultural park' that had new statues and traditional dancers.
We visited more temples.
We encountered wildlife.
We had a beachside dinner at sunset
We rode on top of an elephant
Before I got there, I was really excited about the shopping but try as I might, I couldn't find much worth dragging home. Im told the furniture deals are amazing but I didn't find anything worth shipping home. And no matter how many stores I looked in, I didn't find anything I just had to have. So I purchased almost nothing.
And then we were back in the air waving goodbye.
Overall, it was really an interesting experience. There are a lot of beauty and culture in Bali that you will not find elsewhere. My expectations were very high so I admit it fell short just a tad - but that is why traveling is so important. Visiting is appreciating both good and bad.
