Bali

An esteemed ex Prime Minister once called Australia “the ass end of the world.” What he really meant was we live at the far end of the world.  We took a trip to Bali.  It is about 7 hours by flight from Sydney. So it takes such a long time to travel pretty much anywhere.

For the first five hours we were still over land – desserts and grounds being dug up for minerals.

Once we were over water, the 2 hours to the destination felt quick. Bali is a small island of Indonesia, now known as a tourist destination. In Bali, it is common to stay in villas rather than hotels and the villa concept is great. They are walledoff spaces with a little building from 1 bedroom to 3 bedrooms and a little garden.  Many of them have a small swimming pool as well. We had a 3 bedroom villa in the quiet end of Seminyak. The pool was about 9m in length. Just long enough for laps and no need to fight other guests.
