Hi Folks SORRY its been a while since the last blog but have been busy settling in our new pad, photos now attached, looks a bit more like home now, Its just a one bedroom appartment but has a sofa bed down stairs, little kitchen etc.. just right for the two of us really, the pool is lovely and of the four appartments we are the only long term stayers, so it feel like we have the whole palce to ourselves. its located in a place call Taman Mumbul, Nusa Dua bali hills. a 3min bike ride to our favourite beach. We love it!!!!!
We had a day out in Ubud (central Bali) which the photos on the second album are from. Was a great day hired a driver called Gin and for 9 hours and he took us to the most amaxing sites. the highlights where the wood carvers, the cliff top meal and the rice terracess oh and elephant cave, You can buy post cards but when you see thing for real it just blows you away.
the most lastest news (as you can see from the pics) is that I have ahad a rather large tattoo down my arm of a Borong which is like a Bali skull and is ment to scare away evil spirits, it took 3 hours and the artist worked free hand (very talented) and cost a faction of what it would a home. The only draw back is i cant go swimming for a while and the weather is beautiful.
We have met lots of lovely people and made some good local freinds together with some expats, who we have meet through Van our orignal friend from the Hotel we stayed. We Dined out the other night at a lovely 5star resturant for a mere £35 for the two of us. would say cost at home £90. the beauty of it here is you can eat out every night if you want prices range from £1.50 per head to £200 per head, but the food is all good. Bali people in general are so poor but the Island is full of secret millionares!!
