Bali is a magical place. The postcard-like landscape is made up of beaches, volcanoes and rice paddies; it's like every moment is an opportunity for another perfect picture. The food is spicy, colorful and (of course) delicious. Seafood is in abundance and a special chili sauce that awakes the taste-buds (with a jackhammer) is accompanied with fried noodles and rice. Most of all, the people are kind, gracious and geniunely friendly. The Balinese are extremely family-oriented and religion is at the forefront of their lives. Throughout their days, they make offerings, work, spend time with their families all while with a great, big grin on their faces. I found that the Balinese love to chat with tourists and as one, I found that very refreshing. I'm so glad and grateful that we were able to spend our honeymoon there and it was a trip that won't be forgotten. Here's to hoping that I'll be able to return someday.
