Friday Snapshot: Crabby in Bali

Friday Snapshot: Candidasa, Bali   This little crab lived in our indoor/outdoor bathroom in Candidasa, Bali. He hid most of the day and we spent the rest of the time trying to spy on him and coax him out. He’d watch me sitting on the toilet and never complain. One day I caught him out [...]

A photo collection of Balinese temples

We visited Bali in August and then again in December. I took so many photos of the beautiful temples I thought I’d make a few photo collages to showcase them all. Here are my best Bali temple photos from my time there. We rented a motorbike and just drove around the island taking photos. After [...]

Photo Flashback of the week: Balinese sunset

January 4th, 2012: Candidasa, Bali   It’s my first photo flashback of the New Year! This shot was taken when we were sick from food poisoning. We’d rented a little cottage with a gorgeous ocean view and every afternoon we’d sit on our lounge chairs and watch the sunset.   I felt like I was [...]

We made reservations the night before at a table we selected and almost didn’t [...]

As we make our way back to Bali for New Year’s eve to ring in the new year on the beach, I remembered that I haven’t even written about the amazing villa we stayed at for Mike’s birthday at the end of August. We found a great deal through latestays, which we had never used [...]

Royal Cremation Ceremony in Ubud, Bali- Photo Story Part 2

We followed the procession all the way down to the Dalem Puri Temple, where we witnessed parts of the ceremony that I somehow wished were private.

A view above the clouds-Scaling Mount Agung, Bali’s most sacred volcano

If you haven’t noticed by my previous posts, we are not seasoned hikers. Sure, I’ve done the 4 day Lares Trek high in the Peruvian Andes, and yea, I spent a few months living in the Amazon doing hikes that were up to 9-10 hours a day. But lately, I’ve been really non-active and all [...]
