Bali Hai (See Jane Honeymoon)

take me back

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.

Oh man, I went to Thailand a few weeks ago and it was pretty awesome, too. Asia is a treasure trove of awesomeness. It's a shame it's so far away!

So, so far away.
