If one were to do a search, Bali is probably one of the destinations that has been written about so much that there seems nothing new anyone can add to it. So we cannot profess that what we are about to share with you will.
In fact, this post is a ‘throwback’ (some folks like this term huh?) to the two occasions we did get acquainted with the island. Have a look (here) at our time there if you like.
Today our post is ask the question: what is Bali to you?
Do you have images of Hindu temples and people in traditional dress participating in ceremonies flashing in your heads? Or do you dream up of the beautiful surf that laps the white sand beach with a cocktail in hand? Yep. Those are surely two very different visions!
Some folks write about the wonderful time they spent in the forests, being robbed by monkeys (macaques really). Yet others tell of intriguing temples in seemingly nowhere, at least when one reaches the ‘entrance’ that leads to them. There are those who seem enthralled with the terraced rice fields (padi we call them), while some stay up late into the wee hours partying away.
Did you know that in Bali
- Local vineyards produce and bottle their own wine
- There many different craft villages where you can see artisans at work
- Royal palaces of extinct Balinese lineages are gorgeous
- Some of the best backdrops for golf can be attractions in themselves
What is Bali to you? What did you do when you were there?
