i'm back

click link above for a few photos.  nice to be back actually.  three weeks in the same room/hotel with my sister was enough.  we should have stayed in a few hotels.  next time.  i had a fab time.  some highlights/lowlights:

  • got my suitcase off the carousel and it had a broken wheel.  not good. bought a new one.  i hate it. it's too small
  • broke my camera. bought a new one.  old one works perfectly now.  two cameras :)
  • kuta is a building site.  a new modern hotel going up on every other corner
  • i really miss having my washing/ironing done.  my meals cooked for me.  delicious food.  and someone coming in to clean my room.  
  • we went up to git git waterfall which is spectacular.  clean gorgeous air.  so green.  noisy too.  :)
  • bedugul, the water temple, is wonderful.  i had a pic of it on my computer, now i've seen it in person.
  • gorgeous happy people everywhere.  i went shopping when i got back and no-one smiled at me and pulled me into their shop.  go figure?
  • fab flight over.  smoothest landing ever.  thanks Bev
  • lovely to get home and see the kids and grandchildren.  missed them so much
  • got to save up for next time
  • very small,  tiny motor bike incidence.  small graze.  i'm fine :)
  • broke my glasses.  fixed my glasses.
  • sister finally got prescription glasses.  two pairs
  • shopping, lots of shopping
  • we were underweight coming home  
  • three hours shoe shopping with my sister was three hours too much.  
  • juice.  fresh juice.  watermelon, avocado, mango etc etc
  • noodles
  • bali  coffee
  • swimming and going to the beach most days
  • oh i nearly forgot, massages and more massages.  i can't believe the price.  even the bad ones were good
  • temples and culture so different from ours
now it's back to work on friday for me and the dreaming starts planning the next one.  maybe we should go to thailand next time :)
