Well wat can i say!! Havnt written bout Bali yet as iv been so busy! Ilove it here its soo cool and really lovely place to be. I arrive about 5 days ago it was late so didnt get up to much. the next day we headed out to find the beach only to be surounded by about 10 people trying to sell you stuff and even if you say no thanks they follow you up the street saying sunglasses, tshirts, sarongs! anything and everything. it was pretty crazi at first but u kinda get used to it and jus keep sayin no thanks or if ur in a bad mood jus ignor them! ha! but that not that nice so i try to be friendly al the time cuz the Balinese people are jus soo nice! Even tho theyl try to sell you everything thely sit down and talk to you and laugh with you at the beach and stuff so it can be fun with them! been on on the town a good few nites since being here so its all good. met loads of great people had some mad nites out with them. the clubs and bars here are cool and ther are some lovely restaurants to eat at. been in Kuta since arrving but want to start seeing more of the island soon. Going on a volcano tour 2mor so that shud be good and goin to do another tour on sunday. maybe go rafting at some point aswell, some of the guy we met done it and they said its pretty cool so probly do summink like that aswell. its pretty cheap here also and iv been buying so much stuff! presents, more shoes for me, bags, shorts, tops everything! i ad togo and buy another bag to put it all in so i can cary it wen im moving round. The place im stayn is great, lovely rooms and the people are really nice, will do anything they can to help. thes actually quite a few os us stayn ther now but everyone is moving on at different times so may move if moving round the island altho u can get round it in a few hours so thers really no need. I pay about 11pounds per nite and its well worth it, u can get cheaper but it wouldnt be as nice.
Went on the tour yesterday (Sat 31st) and it was dead on. wasnt feeling myself so was in a bit of a mood and was tired but was good getin out of kuta for day and seeing wat else was in bali. we went to see some temples and a volcano altho the weather wasnt to good so only seen a bit then couldnt see anything cuz we got stuck in a cloud. went to the elsephnat caves lso wich was pretty cool. i slet the whole way home then went out for dinner with michelle, greg, lindsey and her mate. was jus gonna come home after dinner but got a bit of 2nd wind and ended up having the best nite out! we went to a regge club called apache which was so much fun then embargo which was brill! me and greg then ended up goin to a club called 66 i think cuz we heard carl cox was playing ther. we got lifts on the back of motorbikes which was class!!! the club was cool, pretty big but carl didnt actually show up, ther was a notice sayin he was sick or summink which was a bummer but we had a brill time anyway. u could bungy jump and all ther but i didnt as i was pretty trollyed so wudnt of been the best idea. we got motorbikes home aswell, had such a good nite!!
Sadly, Bali is coming to a close. The past week as been pretty wicked so il give u an update....Said cheerio to some brilliant people :( Lindsey from American (who we met in SE Asia) headed onto China for the last leg of her trip before going home and Greg from Birmingham who went on to Australia so hopefuly catch up with him ther. Met loads of other fantastic people also from all over the world, its really easy to meet people here in Bali and i would definitly come back. Been out on the town quite a bit since being here but after the whistle stop tour of Asia i thin i needed to let my hair down here and chil out and party. Tried to see as much of Bali as possible by doin tours and things so have really enjoyed these, getting out of the hustle and bustle of Kuta sumtimes is really good. Went on another wee tour yesterday, was called the Tanah Lot sunset tour. We headed to these ancient temples in this like garden setting, it was almost royal or sumthing, i cant remeber the name of but was all very cultural and nice. Next we headed to teh Monkey Forest which was soo cool! Youcant go to Bali and not go to a Monkey Forest. They roam free in the forest and walk rite up to looking for nuts. Our guide explaiend to us ther are 3 groups of monkeys and they all protect ther own territory. We did see some of fighting which was a bit scarey cuz even tho they are small they scream loud! Also seen pregnant monkeys and then little baby ones that had jus been born, soo cute!! Really enjoyed the Monkey Forest. We then headed to Tanah Lot for the sunset altho it was prett cloudy so you couldnt really see the sunset. was still nice to see it tho, all temples i think sittn on the sea. Today is my last full day in bali as i check out 2moro and fly to oz 2moro nite. Will miss it here as iv had such a brilliant time, would definitly reccomend this place!
