Hey everyone, Well, we've made it to Sydney ok - had a just over a week in Bali and have now both got pretty good tans to show for it. We went all round the island - saw the live volcano that actually last errupted in 1999 and the lava paths are still really noticable, we went to a couple of Temples, which were incredibly well maintained and saw the classic sight - loads of tourists bathing in the water for enternal well being! ha! We also eant to a Monkey sactuary and a monkey climbed right up me, which rocked!
It was pretty weird being somewhere where safety was a total after thought - women with babies were jetting about on motorbikes all the time and without helmets or anything!!
The beach was incredible, but unfortuately the whole island was filled with touters and they really wouldnt give up - think the lack of tourists have had a dramatic effect on the country, leaving them desperate for business. It was a shame, but it all got a bit much and we were definately happy to leave for Australia.
We arrived at our sweet as hostel about 3 hours ago and have settled in fine - gonna go have a bit to eat in a bit and have a few drinks - Bali wins hands down in natural beauty, but the night life sucked a bit - seemed that the elderly Dutch were huge fans of the place and it was a bit quiet anyway - not too many people our age were around....although they were probably frightened off by the hagglers!!
Anyways, we're off for some booze xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
