always an exciting part of the trip, and not least a little stressful, is the booking of flights for a holiday. i bit the bullet last night. flights to bali booked and paid for. done. insurance quote received and will pay for that today. emailed the hotel after receiving their quote. so far so good. :) staying at the persona beach inn in poppies 1. and the best part is that my friend from perth will be there at the same time and hopefully our friend graham. the only part i'm a bit worried about is that i have to fly out a day earlier than my annual leave starts. getting leave at work is like pulling teeth so i'm just a bit concerned about that.
