Bali – Indonesia

I am no travel blogger but decided to share about all the adventurous – funny – frugal escapades that we have every now and then.

I’ll start with Bali- Indonesia, we went there for 3 day(which is not enough for Bali). We had an awful start, the hotel we checked into was not at all the same as we had seen in the pictures while we were booking it online and we had a little incident which scared the s**t out of us the very first night.

The incident- someone knocked on our room door at 2AM claiming it was housekeeping… they kept banging the door for 5 mins, demanding us (yes not politely) to open the door, we didn’t give in to their demands (good that we missed the other type of adventure). We called the reception – no response. The result – I couldn’t sleep… On reporting, the hotel told us it was some drunk guest. DRUNK — I never believed that.

So the scared tourists started their day by overeating at the breakfast buffet.

Our friendly tour guide, Agung was on time and hence started our 3 day marathon….

Ulluwattu

Uluwattu – do see the Kecak dance which is one of a kind, but don’t expect it to be anything like the dance in the movie Baraka.

Tourists are not actually allowed to get inside the temple premises, but we accidentally ended up getting inside, after some confusion and howling the priest excused us and made us pray the Balinese way, that was some experience 🙂

Water rafting in Ayung River

Four reserved, calm and smiling people and one over charged guide, he made all the noise and got excited ..yeeehhh

I felt a bit sorry for him but that is the way I like to enjoy my rafting and maybe my German counterparts were in sync with me. We started rafting on a funny note:- our guide asks me “Are you on your honeymoon?” I say “No” and smile. Then he turns to the other girl on the boat and asks her the same question and she says – “He’s my dad”. So that was a funny and embarrassing way to start the raft. But I enjoyed the day. The tough part came after we finished rafting when he had to climb some innumerable stairs to get to our vehicle….hmmm

(PS: carry your shorts or beach wear, even if you are going to a temple, you might just end up in a beautiful place like this )

Time to conquer Mt Batur, my first mountain trek, happens be a volcanic mountain which was just fuming out of frustration – it’s been decades this thing has erupted.

The famous cat shit coffee or Luwak coffee – tasty, costly, caffeine free – hoping it was shit free too.

Ended the trip with a long afternoon nap and a relaxing Indonesian massage.

Time to get back to reality.
