Recently a few of my friends (this is for you, Maria and Mum!) have been planning their trips to Bali and like me last year, have no idea where to start. I just knew Bali as… well… Bali, the place with great surf and great beaches.
Yes…. I’m still in the airport… and I’m still bored… But I’ve cleverly figured out I can write a post now but not actually publish it… Ingenious right (did I use the ‘in’ correctly that time Dad?)
So whilst being sat in the airport, I’ve been given time to reminisce the wonderful 10 days I have just experienced and to pick out my favourite parts of Bali.
For me, it’s must. It’s a long way to go for only an hour and a half watching but it really is an incredible experience. But then I also think we were really lucky with our boat driver, as a lot of the boats would spot a dolphin and chase after them straight away, but ours told us the dolphins would eventually come to us. He was right. I wouldn’t have got half the shots I did if it wasn’t for him, I’m lucky not all my photos were completely ruined by loads of other boats, which I’m sure lots of other people’s photos are.
Second post of the day! Curaaaazy times… but I am stuck in an airport for 8 hours with nothing to do… SO! Seminyak and Kuta… I can already tell that this is going to be a relatively short post as these were probably my least favourite places in Bali.
Well, I’ve fallen in love with Uluwatu. This place is incredible. Good surf, good people, good atmosphere.
The Gili Islands are insane, we only went to Gili T but it was absolutely packed with people, bars and restaurants.
After an exciting morning watching the Dolphins, we headed back to the south of Bali to Ubud.
This morning we had the earliest of all mornings, 5am to be precise. And why, oh why would we wake up at this torturous hour? Well, we were dragging ourselves out of bed to go see dolphins at sunrise.
Whilst we waited for these elusive creatures to make their appearance, we watched the sun rise as it cast it’s golden spell over Lovina Beach.
After a fleeting visit to Malaysia where we encountered a not so Irish bar (the only thing Irish was Guiness) and a trip to the Pentaling markets, we have finally arrived in Bali!
